The Charles River RightSource scientific staffing program is a flexible insourcing/outsourcing option for biologics developers and manufacturers. The RightSource program removes the challenges of externalizing your biologics testing by providing customized options that allow you to maintain as much or as little control over your in-house resources, capital assets and facilities that you consider strategic and cost efficient. We work with you to evaluate your quality control (QC) testing programs by reviewing your current testing structure and selecting the best-suited and most cost-efficient mix of insourcing and outsourcing options.
