Leadership at Apollo Laboratories
Supervising Toxicologist, Marc W. McCain
Marc joined Apollo Laboratories at the beginning of 2018. He has extensive experience in a variety of laboratory environments. This includes everything from a very small privately owned lab to running 5 departments at the Dallas, TX location for one of the biggest laboratory chains. Mr. McCain has been recognized as an expert witness for drug and intoxicant cases in The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He is extensively experienced in a wide variety of analytic techniques including LC/MSMS, GC/MS, GC, LC, a variety of automated platforms and even the very old technique of Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC). He has been a Technical Supervisor for High Complexity testing in laboratories certified by SAMHSA, CAP and CLIA for over 25 years.
Marc received his Bachelor of Science in Forensic and Toxicological Chemistry from West Chester University of Pennsylvania too many years ago to remember (or admit to).
General Supervisor, Abbriana Cox
Abbriana started at Apollo beginning of 2018 as the Lead Chemistry Tech. She received her lab training with the U.S. Army at Fort Sam Houston where she graduated 3rd in her class. Then went on to complete her clinical at Tripler Army Medical Center and receive her MLT(ASCP) in 2014. Since graduating, she has received training while also being placed in leadership roles in various military, hospital, and reference lab settings. Her 1st location was a reference lab out of Frisco, Texas where she worked alongside the director to automate and bring on new ELISA assays. She worked the bench alone performing up 400 or more testing, manually and automated, a day for months before training other personnel. After leaving that company she began working in clinics, small and large hospitals as a generalist on night shift in many departments usually alone. Since joining the Apollo team she has progressed to General Supervisor were she is now responsible for day-to- day oversight of high complexity test performance by qualified testing personnel.
Abbriana is still currently serving in the U.S. Army Reserves.
