Expert Advisory Services

Going beyond the test: We help our clients at every phase of the product development life cycle.

Value-added advisory approach

Nelson Labs Expert Advisory Services offers a wide breadth of MedTech and pharmaceutical experience to help our clients deliver safe and effective products to market. Our Expert Advisory Service encompasses product development, facility and process validation, and product performance testing, as well as regulatory support.

Each expert advisor brings a unique perspective based on years of industry, regulatory, and scientific expertise. By participating in industry groups, actively working on the standards committees (AAMI/ISO/ASTM/PDA), and partnering with a broad range of MedTech and pharma companies on many product types, our experts bring a breadth of experience to each relationship. Although our lab processes over 50,000 projects each year, our expert advisors ensure success for our clients one project at a time.

By focusing on what matters most, we help our clients deliver life-saving products with every test through our value-added advisory approach.
