What to look for in the ultimate global clinical supply partner?


Changing regulations, importation requirements, and many other factors can have a negative impact on international trials. Selecting an experienced and innovative global clinical supplies partner, like CSM, can support the success of a study.

In an increasingly complex and competitive world, it is not always easy to ensure that a clinical trial is finished on time, on budget, and has a high level of quality. Having a detailed plan that covers supplies, storage, and distribution is essential.

But what key characteristics should a global clinical supplies services partner have to be able to mitigate risks and deliver outstanding results?

One example is project flexibility: Selecting a partner that limits bureaucracy and reacts promptly makes working together much easier. A service provider should have agile managerial and operational systems, which are built to accommodate ever-changing clinical protocol requirements and fast turnaround times without sacrificing quality.


Never before has working with a reliable, flexible and innovative partner been as important. As a Clinigen Group company with facilities in the US, UK, EU, Asia and Africa, CSM is unique in its ability to serve all pre-launch needs from Clinical Trials to Investigator Initiated Studies to Managed Access Programs.

Customer Testimonial

“In a recent trial we experienced an unforeseen challenge: Our labels had to be reprinted and we were worried that this would push back our delivery to sites by at least 3 weeks. But thanks to CSM and their On-Demand process we were back on track within 48 hours."
