For over fifty years, we've developed some of the world's most advanced testing capabilities with one mission in mind: to help improve health and lives. Today, through our comprehensive clinical laboratories, we process more than 3 million patient specimens per week—and, in doing so, help medical professionals and patients make important health decisions. The insights we gain through testing then fuel our drug development practice, by identifying patterns and even individuals who might benefit from enrollment in specific drug trials. It's this combination that makes us unique.
We may have nearly 70,000 employees worldwide, but the people we think of most are the patients who benefit directly from the drugs we help develop. With the support of our diagnostics capabilities and a commitment to deliver drug trials that are both reliable and rigorous, we're able to support clinical trial research efforts in nearly 100 countries. And that's one of the reasons why fifty of the top drugs developed in 2019 were supported by our clinical data.
Who is Labcorp? We are a leading global life sciences company that advances patient health and powers clear, confident decisions through its diagnostics and drug development offerings.
