3 Insights for Effective Comparator Sourcing

Whether you’re a global pharma or a biotech start-up, every clinical trial will entail overcoming challenges with sourcing, packaging, and the logistics of clinical materials. Choosing the right partner provides you with flexibility and risk mitigation, ensuring you can choose the most cost-effective solution, and avoid delays. Here are some of the key factors to consider for your clinical trial sourcing:

  • Global Network is critical
    Often, clinical trials are not in one location, but rather span multiple countries and even multiple continents. In depth knowledge of the regulatory requirements and product availability in each country can be critical to prevent issues from arising. The correct solutions provider will have both the experience, and the global comparator network, to keep you fully informed from the initial request to site delivery. The correct solutions provider will also provide guidance on how often to source and label, and where to distribute and store the products.
  • Direct to Manufacturer relationships
    Product restrictions and global shortages can halt your trial before it even starts. It is critical to establish partnerships with solution providers that have a good reputation and solid experience dealing with both manufacturers and distributors. A provider with the experience and partnerships can help inform and guide expectations on the challenges of drug sourcing, and ensure processes are smooth across the supply chain, in addition to having the foresight to add value in ways not considered before.
  • Process Experience and Foresight
    In an increasingly complex clinical landscape, the many decisions that must be made during the sourcing process can feel overwhelming.
