The company also offers scientific and technical consulting, and clinical research services for a range of industries, including dietary supplements, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, personal care, and food and beverage.
"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 supplement, nutrition, cosmetic, and pharma space. A comprehensive, one-stop laboratory, such as Canyon Labs, fills a void in the health and wellness category and will be a welcome solution."
Canyon Labs, which was established in 2021, is led by two 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, said the company in a release.
"We provide expert guidance to companies navigating through the complexities of FDA regulation for their products," commented Dr. McCall. "We partner with our customers to test, develop, and improve life-changing products through science, innovation, and technology."
The parent company is Ultradent Products, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, devices, and instruments worldwide. Ultradent was founded in the 1970s.
"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.
