Our end-to-end service offering comprises regulatory consulting, IP import and sample export, protocol design, ethics committee submissions, safety screening, and bio analytical testing. In addition, we have proven expertise in clinical study management, method development and validation, data management with Oracle Clinical, PK analysis using WinNonlin, statistical analysis using SAS, and report writing, amongst others.
Clinical Research Centres and Facility
BABE and intensive PK/PD studies are conducted in clinical research centres (CRCs) located at selected specialty hospital campuses in India ensuring highest standards of safety. In India, our state of the art BA/BE centre with the 116-bed Clinical Pharmacological Unit (CPU) is located at Manipal and Mangalore and is designed for first-in-man and mixed gender studies.
Equipped with an advanced ICU to handle emergencies, our CPUs are centrally air-conditioned with dedicated areas for screening, counselling, phlebotomy, access-controlled pharmacy, and recreation & dining rooms with state-of-the-art monitoring. The ICU beds are equipped with defibrillators, ventilators, cardiac monitors, oxygen supply, a crash cart and all emergency medicines.
In addition, we have access to the 60-bed Human Pharmacological Unit at the Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences, Bangalore, which is designed for large pivotal studies. All our facilities are designed to meet high standards of volunteer safety and comply with DCGI specifications.
We have an in house GLP compliant analytical lab with a bank of LCMS/MS and a library of methods.
Study Team and Volunteer Base
Screening samples are tested at our ISO-certified Clinical Testing Laboratories accredited by the College of American Pathologists; hence we are able to ensure volunteer inclusion with protocol compliance.
We have a database of over 4,500 volunteers including female volunteers and special populations for studies focused on post-menopausal women, geriatric volunteers, oncology, psychiatry and dermatology, as well as diabetes.
