Supplying medical products and materials for Clinical Trials
Access to reliable medicinal products and materials for clinical trials is key to the success of any clinical trial. As a trusted supplier of comparators, Alcura delivers the right product to customers, right when they need it.
Purchasing medical products and materials for Clinical Trials
At Alcura, we can source comparators directly from the manufacturer or through verified suppliers, which is critical to the success of any clinical trial.
As we work directly with the manufacturer, we can carefully assess the source of the drug and request products from the same lot, with an equivalent lifespan.
Supplying tools or devices for Clinical Trials
Alcura can source any materials or tools (ECGs, centrifuges, refrigerators, etc.) clients need for the study. They can be sourced to purchase or lease. All the material has a validation certificate and we provide remote recalibration or replace them if they stop working.
We can also supply all sorts of consumables, such as lines, infusion bags, needles and any other materials needed to administer medications, as well as laboratory kits and material to draw and store samples.
Cutting comparator sourcing costs
Our group purchasing power is one of the core benefits of the company’s international strength. We can source and purchase reliable medicinal products and materials for clinical trials at competitive prices in European markets, as well as in Africa, Asia and the US. This keeps costs down and speeds delivery to your medical research sites.
Alcura works directly with the manufacturer to assess the source of the drug and:
