• Covid-19 Impact On Bioprocessing: PART 3 Long-Term Changes Resulting From The Pandemic

    Changes in the bio/pharmaceutical industry are being accelerated and catalyzed by the responses to the current Covid-19 pandemic. Although suppliers have proven themselves rather robust in their dealing with the pandemic, and business is continuing generally uninterrupted, there will be significant changes.

  • Enabling Fast And Appropriate Drug Product Supply For Phase 1 Clinical Trials

    Reducing the timeline from conception to Phase 1 trials can be especially challenging for new and emerging biotechs. Since many of them are completely virtual or have limited lab space capabilities, they often do not have in-house resources and capacity for formulation development. Without the ability to move smoothly from lab concept to the manufacture and delivery of GMP clinical supplies to patients, critical milestones could be missed, potentially delaying funding commitments from investors.

  • How a Best-Practice Strategy For Sourcing Ancillary Materials Reduced Risk, Spending and Workload In A Global Diabetes Trial

    It’s impossible to run a global clinical trial of an investigational diabetes drug without ancillary materials. And as one leading multi-national pharmaceutical company recently learned, managing ancillaries can be a challenge every bit as complex as the trial itself.

  • Delivering Clinical Trial Medications Direct-To-Patient

    In a perfect world patients enrolled in clinical trials would live a short distance from the investigator site where they receive their treatment. Unfortunately that is not always the case. In recent years the Direct-to- Patient model, which brings medical procedures to a patient’s home, has emerged as a solution for Sponsors to increase patient recruitment and retention in clinical trials.

    This infographic provides an overview of Fisher Clinical’s depot-to-patient solution to support decentralized clinical trials in the US.

  • Low Risk Frozen Distribution Of Single-Use Bags For Bioprocessing

    This paper will discuss the results of applying an approach using sensors and more suitable material to a frozen shipping study of single-use fluoropolymer bags.

  • Considerations For Your First Clinical Trial

    For a small and emerging biopharma, moving into the clinical trial phase of development can be overwhelming. Tt is important to understand that CROs do not typically manage the comprehensive clinical trial supply chain. This paper reviews seven ‘clinical trial supply best practices’ to help ensure a successful trial.

  • Factoring The “What Ifs” Into Supply Forecasting

    Growing urgency in the biopharmaceutical industry to speed new products to market is leading to greater appreciation for supply forecasting as a strategic and highly complex success factor. This paper discusses the aspects to consider when developing a supply plan, the influence of early decisions and impact on outcome as a trial progresses, and how decisions can put patients and the trial at risk.
