“Within the drug discovery phase, outsourcing is a way to improve overall efficiency and reduce risk,” said Kym Faylor, President, Azzur Labs. “Companies no longer see it as a vendor-supplier relationship, but as a partnership. Azzur aims to be that partner, and this location provides important access to strategic outsourcing opportunities in the RTP area.”

Azzur Group first opened its doors in Raleigh in 2015 with Azzur Group Southeast, bringing comprehensive consultative services to the region, specializing in quality, validation, and compliance. Today, with the opening of Azzur Labs, Azzur’s partners have the additional benefit of a local, holistic approach to quality that couples comprehensive consultative services with laboratory services.
