The key challenges
Woodley Trial Solutions supplied all the necessary equipment for this specific study – including everything from balances, centrifuges and fridges to weighing scales, height measures, and blood pressure monitors – taking full responsibility for maintenance and calibration, as well as continuous medical device certification where necessary. The downtime was minimized by keeping a stock of ready-to-be-shipped instruments, instantly replacing equipment that was sent off site for calibration or needed to be switched out. An open communication line guaranteed that any issues or changes were addressed in a timely manner, giving the client reassurance that they were in good hands.
Woodley Trial Solutions understands the evolving nature of clinical trials and always makes it easy for clients to extend their contracts and move equipment between different sites, as well as to expand to other countries. In this specific case, Woodley Trial Solutions supported the client’s expansion from Europe to the US and Australia, providing regulatory advice and ensuring that the new sites were supplied with everything necessary for the research. This flexibility requires experienced staff and sturdy internal protocols, especially when handling several trials simultaneously.
Woodley Trial Solutions supported the study that assessed the effect of twice-daily application of a topical treatment to manage CHE.
