Flexibility remains an important aspect of how we operate at Virtus.

How we work

We contract directly with you, the client, to conduct the research you want, performed to the highest possible standards. Whether you contract with us to execute a clinical trial/study or pre-clinical project, you only have to negotiate one contract and we will do the rest.

We contract with our project partner, Imperial College NHS Healthcare Trust, to deliver the clinical aspects of projects. Our clinical studies are performed in the purpose built Imperial Clinical Respiratory Research Unit (ICRRU) at the St Mary’s campus of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, or if quarantine/overnight stays are required, within the Imperial Clinical Research Facility at the Hammersmith campus of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. This represents an efficient and convenient way of commencing and completing your clinical study on time.

Our in vitro studies are performed in our own bespoke laboratories situated in the London Bioscience & Innovation Centre (LBIC), Camden, London. Equally, if you are interested in our in vivo models, we contract with an external partner to perform pre-clinical in vivo studies in state-of-the-art experimental facilities, with downstream analyses performed in our own laboratories.

Flexibility is an important aspect to how we operate. Fast and light, we can modify ourselves to fit in with your needs, whether you’re a large pharmaceutical company or a small biotech.
