LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Celerion, the premier provider of innovative early stage drug development solutions, announces the expansion of its capabilities in the respiratory therapeutic area, with the addition of a dedicated Bronchoscopy Suite in the Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK facility. The Bronchoscopy Suite allows bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) to be performed within the Celerion clinic utilizing study participants from our extensive database. The addition of the Bronchoscopy Suite complements our ability to reliably explore the expression and quantification of protein biomarkers within the fluid lining of the lower respiratory tract. Using a multiplex approach, BAL samples can be analyzed for a panel of customized biomarkers and thereby provide a more reliable picture of the performance of potential airway drug candidates.
