There will be no more need to source “draw locations” of other laboratories or other third-party contract labor vendors with poor quality control and assurance. And there will be no more waiting in line at a local lab, clinic, or hospital for hours for your clients and their patients just to have a disappointing experience which can reflect poorly on your laboratory and increase barriers to testing utilization.

Our mobile specimen collection solutions are available for a comprehensive range of laboratory specimen collection needs. We offer collection and transport services for all types of specimens. We will not only support your current business but our services have been shown to help you attract new clients through valued added options that expand your reach and increase gross revenues.

Our certified phlebotomists are trained to collect a wide variety of specimens for both diagnostic and research purposes, and always according to protocols defined by your laboratory.

It is important to understand the unique needs of biotech organizations to provide the best service possible. Whether it is for clinical trials conducted under an IRB, as needed for FDA approval or environmental testing, or for preliminary R&D, NPPN provides biotechnology companies a significant advantage. 

Helping Biotech Navigate COVID-19

The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency has affected all aspects of medicine, industry, and research. The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency has affected all aspects of medicine, industry, and research. 

But NPPN has adapted to the challenge. In March of 2020 we implemented our pandemic response plan, which includes, in addition to all standard biosafety precautions, the CDC and OSHA recommend heightened contact precautions, airborne precautions, and eye protection (e.g., goggles or face shields) to protect patients and our technicians from exposure to the virus. As well, we have established a workforce monitoring program to ensure the safety and health of patients and our front line personnel. This response plan has enabled us to maintain maximum flexibility while responding to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Since March of 2020, many of our healthcare provider clientele have leaned heavily on us with increasing case loads of their at risk patient populations. We are actively engaged in providing direct mitigation of virus spread by enabling these patient to stay home, out of clinic environments, and out of laboratory waiting rooms, while continuing to maintain continuity of care and diagnostic monitoring regimes. 

Adapting to COVID-19

NPPN has adapted to this extraordinary challenge to ensure that our communities are kept safe and healthy, while maintaining continuity of care and diagnostic monitoring regimes, as well as supporting the critical research needed to defeat this virus.

Our team has been specializing in specimen collection for home bound and limited mobility individuals for decades. We have the experience and skill required to support your organization and your community of patients, especially during the current pandemic.
