Donnie brings to GTI Lab Services 20 years of microbiology, chemistry, and management experience with companies such as Timken and Northview Atlantic Laboratories
In just under two years with Northview Labs, Donnie became fully trained, and demonstrated proficiency in all areas of testing offered there, including bioburden, sterility, EtO residuals, environmental monitoring, and LAL testing, and was the only employee of the Northview Laboratories family of labs to demonstrate this proficiency in all departments. He was promoted to manager of LAL and EtO residuals testing shortly thereafter, quickly developing a great rapport with his clients, which allowed for an expansion of testing services to create a more complete analytical microbiology and chemistry department. In addition, by being the only technician in the network to be certified in all three methods of LAL testing, he became the endotoxin detection “expert”, and worked with many major pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to design and validate testing methods for products that had previously been deemed unsuitable for endotoxin testing per LAL methods.
Donnie also worked as a consultant to other major medical device, pharmaceutical, and textile companies to design and implement routine testing methods for their products, water system validations, and environmental monitoring.
He also maintained a great relationship with his coworkers, and received the peer-nominated Employee of the Year Award twice, and was often cited by clients in being instrumental to the success of their operation.
