When the lives and health of patients depend on the results of your work, a rigorous, thorough, and systematic approach to quality is absolutely necessary.

  • Over 50 Client Audits per year
  • cGMP and GLP compliant
  • AAALAC accredited

PBL has hundreds of protocols and standard operating procedures covering everything from calibration, to document control, to testing services. All employees are given training on the PBL approach to quality, both as new hires and on an ongoing basis.


We think service is much more than just being friendly on the phone. To us, exceptional service means providing testing of the highest quality, delivering timely results, and, of course, making every effort to be not only friendly people, but the kind of people who proactively seek out solutions for your needs. Altogether, this means that you can have confidence in the results and data that we deliver to you.

We believe that every client deserves this level of service. That’s why delivering exceptional service forms the core of what we do here at PBL, and it’s why we strive to be “The Service Leader in Bioscience Testing.”
