Clinical supply companies sign joint venture pact
Two clinical supply companies, based in the U.S. and U.K., have joined forces to prepare and distribute multinational clinical supplies. ProClinical Pharmaceutical Services (Phoenixville, PA) and Brecon Pharmaceuticals (Hay-on-Wye, England) say that parallel operations in the U.S. and Europe will provide increased global logistical management and faster distribution of supplies to clinical testing sites worldwide.
Services covered under the agreement include cold-form and thermoformed blister packaging, bottling, over-encapsulation, sachet (pouch) filling, storage, distribution and reconciliation of returns. ProClinical also offers stability testing and analytical evaluation at its facility, and Brecon offers multi-lingual label printing, code breaks and cephalosporin capabilities in the U.K. — SG
