FEATURED ARTICLES

  • As the pharmaceutical industry evolves, clinical studies have become more complex while timelines and quality standards have become more stringent. Achieving appropriate scientific oversight and thorough and efficient sample management throughout studies are challenges that many pharma and biotech companies encounter. In this Q&A we explore a highly specialized outsourcing model that address these challenges.

  • As clinical research has become increasingly complex, the management of patient samples and data is more challenging than ever before. Benefit from expert connections, flexible solutions, personalized relationships with project managers, and exceptional customer service. 

  • A major pharmaceutical company faced significant challenges managing the life cycle of its outsourced clinical and preclinical studies. The client’s internal analysts were developing assays and transferring them to global laboratories while also juggling the management of vendors and overseeing assay performance. However, without centralized, dedicated oversight, clinical timelines and quality were being challenged.

  • A leading pharmaceutical research company needed help supporting a two-year clinical study of progressive multiple sclerosis. In order to accommodate multiple sampling time-points, the shipping kit needed to hold up to 17 test tubes in isolation, instead of the standard six or seven, and needed to maintain the test tubes within a very limited target temperature range despite exposure to extreme heat or cold for extended periods of time.

  • The value of a single sample has increased tremendously, shifting the focus of sample management from one of a maintenance procedure to a dedicated investment ensuring the integrity, organization, and safety of all samples.

  • By adopting a method for seamlessly integrating and validating increasingly complex biomarker data, you can streamline your clinical trials, allowing life-saving drugs to reach the market – and patients – faster.

  • The global demand for specialized sample processing has grown dramatically however despite the rising need, research teams continue to struggle to obtain high-quality laboratory support services to perform sample processing. Learn how innovative flow cytometry fast turnaround and monitored, specialized processing can help safeguard samples.

  • Immuno-oncology trials are increasing in prevalence and, for many reasons, are much more complex than standard clinical trials. Learn how partnering with an experienced central lab can alleviate these challenges, create efficiencies and save researchers time and expense.

  • Sample preparation and processing are often crucial components in immuno-oncology and cell and gene therapy studies. Obtaining timely and high-quality processing services is an industrywide challenge, particularly within the context of global trials. This paper reviews three of the keys to success for global sample processing.

  • Because of its promising outcomes, immuno-oncology is a significant and growing segment of clinical research, but one that does not come without challenges. Following the guidelines for best practices within immuno-oncology trials can be made easier by following this comprehensive checklist

  • Local laboratory data normalization is a routine process in clinical trial data management. However, even with standardized collection and transport procedures across the laboratories there is often variability to account for. This paper highlights the modern need for access to local laboratory data in near real time.

WEBINARS

  • Challenges with increasingly complex clinical trials and a constantly growing demand for expedited study start-up has driven innovation in the central laboratory industry. Learn how an experienced central laboratory project initiation team can expertly support the planning, designing and setting up of clinical projects with multiple testing locations – including international vendor laboratories.

  • An increasing number of clinical trials in areas such as immune-oncology, cell and gene therapy, and rare disease require the utilization of local laboratory support for screening and safety testing. Since different local laboratories may use different normal ranges and units, the management of these data can present many challenges for sponsors and investigator sites. In this webinar, an overview of a local laboratory standardization process will be given to demonstrate how these processes can be optimized.

  • Sample preparation and processing are crucial steps in immuno-oncology, cell-based and gene therapies, and diagnostics and obtaining timely, high-quality preparation and processing services on a global basis is a universal challenge. This webinar considers three keys to success to a successful global sample processing: specimen collection and transport, consistency in analytical technique and biostorage.

  • To address the parallel growth in advanced therapies and in clinical trial patient centric services, this webinar will discuss the challenges and strategies for a patient focused sample management plan. Topics will include the integration of home health care visits, solutions for virtual sample and product tracking, patient scheduling, and logistical solutions.

  • Sample preparation and processing are crucial steps in immuno-oncology, cell-based and gene therapies, and diagnostics. In this webinar, we discuss proper sample collection and transport, leveraging a global network of labs vetted for high-quality processing, and successful delivery to essential global storage for all sample types.

  • The incorporation of biomarkers into early drug trials has challenged leading companies to reprioritize innovation and drive quality sample management systems. As clinical development pipelines expand, companies should explore partnerships that will allow for scalability, enabling efficient and improved sample management.
