What People Are Saying

PIA was more than flexible and accommodating with their workflow methodology while still staying true to their compliance standards.


at a Leading GLobal Imaging Core Lab

PIA’s imaging core lab capabilities more than satisfied our research needs during a large project. PIA was highly accurate with consistent reproducibility. They are flexible and easy to work with. We would definitely use them again.
