"SSLC has provided invaluable assistance with all technical and
regulatory aspects of setting up our two laboratories.
Joanne Lannon and her staff have been extremely professional
and competent in dealing with our staff and educating them
on the proper regulatory and operational requirements of
both moderate and high complexity labs. I have started
and operated four laboratories in my career and have
dealt with many consultants. SSLC has been among the best
I have engaged through the years. I can recommend them without
reservation to anyone setting up a new lab or making an
existing lab better."

"We needed a rapid, expert assessment of operations in a fully-licensed
specialty laboratory with a view to the standard of practice, and an expansion
strategy. SSLC was receptive, thoughtful, prompt, professional, expert and communicative.
"Both from a laboratory operations and from a consulting perspective, they
exemplified what one hopes to encounter. I recommend them without reservation."
