Medical Device Consultants in partnership
with Clinical Development & Support Services
26 July 2010
US contract research organization (CRO) Medical Device
Consultants, Inc. (MDCI) has announced a strategic partnership with
Clinical Development & Support Services Ltd (CDSS), a clinical services
and CRO based in Cheshire, UK.
The relationship will allow clients access to the best of both
organizations' core strengths and geographical expertise. The
service expansion will be accomplished through mutual referrals,
co-ordinated sales, marketing, and presentation activities.
Leslie Rose, Director of Clinical Services at MDCI said, "Our
primary aim is to fully support clients as they design and conduct
medical device and IVD clinical trials both in the US and Europe.
The CDSS network of employee and contract clinical research
professionals in the UK and across Europe complements MDCI's full
service CRO activities. This collaboration of two former competitors
combines our strengths to provide broader and deeper clinical and
regulatory solutions for all of our medical device clients."
John Illingworth, Manager Director at CDSS said, "We recognize
that our clients need to ensure their clinical research plans meet
International regulatory requirements especially in the US and
Europe. MDCI's extensive regulatory expertise and network of
clinical research professionals in the US makes our alliance a
perfect match to achieve this. The blend of both CDSS' and MDCI's
skills and infrastructure will allow us to provide all the benefits
of working with a large, multinational CRO, whilst retaining the
personal, tailored service that both companies pride themselves on."
