APS is committed to providing our customers best in class service, rapid response, and tailored services. Best in class service means providing you a world class facility with experienced researchers and technicians. Our facility is ALAAAC accredited and USDA licensed. We’ve invested in high quality state of the art catheterization and surgical equipment. We’ve housed all these services in a convenient location, right in the heart of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Medical Device Tech cluster.
APS has bundled resources critical for medical devices testing into a single laboratory operation. We offer best in class veterinary and animal welfare practices to ensure procedures are conducted ethically and test systems are provided exceptional care. We have research interventionalists, surgical technicians, study directors and veterinary pathology staff with decades of experience. The execution of your protocol and data collection will be performed to the highest standards. Our laboratories offer state of the art imaging (IVUS, OCT, Ultrasound, QCA, SEM, Faxitron) and via our partnerships with outside institutions we can offer more advanced diagnostic imaging up on request (MRI, CT, MicroCT).
APS strives to provide rapid responsive service. We understand that in medical device development the only constant is change. We’ve tailored our systems and practices to keep up with our customers’ fast paced business cycles. APS can go from a bid, to as study design ready to enrolling test systems in as little as 10 days. APS also understands that starting a project is only half the battle. APS has earned a reputation for meeting and exceeding customer deadlines for data reporting and study finalization. Our study directors have the full support and backing of a team of research assistants and quality assurance auditors to ensure a complete and accurate report will be generated for your proof of concept study through your pivotal GLP preclinical study, used to support your US and OUS regulatory filings.
