Manufacturing & Packaging of Clinical Supplies

MODEPHARMA’s network model allows us to offer the full spectrum of manufacturing services for investigational medicinal products (IMPs). Our services are applicable to open-label, single-blind, double-blind, and double-dummy studies ranging from smaller phase I through to larger phase IV studies.

All manufacturing/packaging of clinical supplies is undertaken to high quality standards in certified GMP manufacturing units licensed for the manufacture of IMPs as per current UK and EU Good Manufacture Practices (cGMP). All clinical trial medication is subsequently certified and released by a Qualified Person (QP).

Project Management

  • Meticulous project planning with over 200 project control points across the span of a clinical supply project covering project timelines, costings, IMPD data, CTA applications, technical agreements, medication label designs, manufacturing batch records and documentation requirements
  • Extensive trial design assistance including IMP production feasibility and budgeting assistance
  • Optimisation of the trial IMP design by calculating the medication needed and selecting the most sensible IMP option – considering not only variables of the clinical trial (such as patient population factors) but also manufacture and stability dependent factors
  • Unique access to a pan-European network of pharmaceutical contract manufacturers ensuring the best option for your requirements
  • Support the set up of Technical Agreements for the trial
  • Comprehensive co-ordination of all contract manufacturing
  • Ensuring GCP, GMP and GDP requirements around the IMP are met such as labelling requirements and the retrieval of key documentation to support the IMP (Certificates of Analysis, QP release statements and UK/EU GMP statement of compliance)

We do all this so that you can carry out a study with minimal obstacles.
