When you contract with Virtus to execute a clinical study or clinical trial, you can let us organise all the details including trial monitoring, eCRF design and statistics; or organise these aspects yourself.
If you prefer to leave these details to us, then we have a wide network of service providers that we are proud to have worked with previously. Our project partners are all experts in their field, come fully vetted by us and are ready to dovetail seamlessly into our structure to deliver whatever your business needs.
We are privileged to work with the following service providers:
MWB Consulting offers industry-leading consulting services across the entire product development pathway including regulatory support and submissions, clinical operations and essential compliance activities of pharmacovigilance. MWB also provides legal and representative services in the UK, and data protection services tailored to the needs of pharma.
Data Magik provides a full data management and clinical statistics service for clinical trials. Data Magik have their own software development and an electronic data capture (EDC)/interactive web response system (IWRS) platform, called Kapture, which is used in-house, but can also be licensed to third parties. It is designed to work from all devices and, being proprietary, can be crafted to a client’s individual needs.
Ignite Data work with a large UK-wide network of GP Practices to identify protocol ready patients. Each patient is provided with an ethically approved study pack to enable an informed decision about participation. This highly effective method is combined with call screening, so only potentially eligible patients are referred to the study team.
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 mouse 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.
