SALT LAKE CITY, Mar. 31, 2022 - A 17,000 sq. ft. laboratory, Canyon Labs opened in Salt Lake City, offering services for laboratory testing, scientific and technical consulting, and Institutional Review Board (IRB) clinical support.

Canyon Labs plans to partner with life science organizations throughout the country to perform testing, consulting, and IRB services for medical devices, pharmaceuticals, OTC drugs, and biologics.

“We are filling a need for companies who experience challenges working with testing laboratories who are slow to respond, lose customer samples and provide poor customer service,” said Andy Kawamoto, Canyon Labs Chief Business Development Officer. “Canyon Labs was built to remedy each of those issues, especially for companies in the medical device, biopharma, and biologics space. A comprehensive, one-stop laboratory, such as Canyon Labs, fills a void in the MedTech category and will be a welcome solution.”

Moreover, the Canyon Labs team is led by two accomplished Johns Hopkins University instructors: Dr. Haven McCall, with more than 20 years of laboratory, clinical, and regulatory background; and Dr. David Locke, also with 20-plus years of medical, clinical, and regulatory affairs experience.

Canyon Labs has a team of experts who understand the complexities of products regulated by the FDA.

“We provide expert guidance to companies navigating through the complexities of FDA regulation for their products,” said Dr. Haven McCall, Canyon Labs Chief Executive Officer. “We partner with our customers to test, develop, and improve life-changing products through science, innovation, and technology.”

“To ensure trust and accountability, our 40-plus years of combined experience working in labs and with labs, alongside our breadth of scientific offerings and high standard of service, will set us apart and will be something clients notice immediately,” said Kawamoto.
