Ancillary Supplies

Parexel's Clinical Logistics Leader provides serves as the focal point for the coordination in the critical CTM - Supply Chain.

In addition to the Investigational Medicinal Products and other study related drugs, clinical trials require a host of other supplies, including but not limited to diagnostic, testing and medical equipment, centrifuges, disposable products, refrigerators, computers, eDiaries and ECG machines. As a fundamental imperative of trial recording, each site must be supplied with various trial documents, including site reference manuals, investigator literature, Case Report Forms (CRFs), and trial procedures.

Due to the rise in complexity of many trials, the quantity of ancillary supplies and the number of diverse vendors needed to produce them has increased significantly. The difficulty in ensuring that essential supplies reach sites in a cost-efficient manner for global studies is even further amplified. 

Parexel's ancillary supplies strategy is focused to consolidate as many non-drug related outbound activities as possible.  Our industry leading “study-in-a-box” concept enables efficient delivery to sites and avoids multiple shipments for different sources at different time points to different site staff.
