Theorem Clinical Research, Charles River Form Strategic Alliance
News Sep 23, 2013
Theorem Clinical Research has announced the formation of a strategic alliance with Charles River Laboratories that will provide clients with an integrated solution from nonclinical testing and analysis through clinical development and registration.
The new alliance provides nonclinical testing programs in the areas of bioanalysis, immunogenicity and immunology to support clinical trials.
“Charles River develops and validates assays in support of nonclinical programs, and many of these assays can be validated for human matrix and used for analyzing clinical samples,” said Dr. Marc Hoffman, Theorem senior vice president and general manager of biopharmaceutical development.
Charles River’s high-quality research models, preclinical testing capabilities and clinical support services are backed by a comprehensive bioanalysis portfolio for non-GLP and GLP programs.
Laboratories are equipped with the latest instrumentation to measure drug and metabolite concentrations in biological matrices and to provide full support for capillary micro sampling and dried blood spot analysis.
The variety of advanced equipment ensures the capacity to meet critical deadlines.
“We are pleased to partner with a world-class clinical trials organization like Theorem Clinical Research. Sponsors will benefit from the experience of both organizations. The alliance will offer a seamless transition from preclinical testing into the clinical arena,” said Alan Bartlett, executive director of laboratory services, Charles River Laboratories.
