AlmacAlmac Clinical Technologies, part of the Almac Group, the world’s largest privately held contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing organization, has announced the formation of a strategic partnership with inVentiv Health, a leading biopharma outsourcing company combining a leading CRO and the industry’s only Contract Commercial Organisation (CCO).

The partnership presents an opportunity for both organisations to provide clients and sites with streamlined access to best-in-class clinical trial Interactive Response Technology (IRT) solutions.

Through the strategic partnership, Almac Clinical Technologies will now provide IRT solutions to inVentiv clients, including its market-leading IXRS technology. This technology has been used in more than 2000 trials and provides sponsors with the visibility and control needed to make data-driven decisions.

This partnership will enable inVentiv Health to enhance its clinical services continuum by offering clients access to Almac’s comprehensive, best-in-class IRT services to unlock further efficiencies in trial study configuration and deployment.”

inVentiv Health selected Almac as a partner based on Almac’s dedication to customer focus, quality, expertise and innovation. These factors align with inVentiv Health’s commitment to accelerating client success.

Valarie Higgins, President and Managing Director, Almac Clinical Technologies, commented: “This partnership reaffirms Almac’s position as the global leader in clinical technology solutions, like IRT. We’re thrilled to partner with inVentiv Health as their organizational mission aligns seamlessly with the ethos and priorities of the Almac Group.
