Commercial product sourcing for clinical trials

At Penn Pharma, we understand the criticality of controlled sourcing of commercial products for use in clinical studies. Which is why we offer our clients a Commercial Product Sourcing service where we use our knowledge and experience of this area to access the market for the best comparator, rescue medication, concomitant therapy (NIMP) needed for your study taking into account shelf-life, pricing and availability.

Ensuring your clinical trial runs smoothly and effectively is of the utmost importance to us and if you need to use marketed products in a clinical trial, our sourcing, repackaging and distribution services will help you get your study requirements in a safe, compliant and cost effective way.


Since a large number of molecules fail in Phase I – some sources put the failure rate at over 90% – it is imperative that companies conduct their early phase studies quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.

The requirement to manufacture Phase I IMPs in accordance with GMP, and to arrange certification by a qualified person, potentially add complexity and time to the process, particularly for those products being imported from outside the EU.

That’s why we are proud to introduce our FastTrack™ team who, depending on the availability of drug materials, can often complete projects within a three-week period or less, instead of six to eight weeks usually associated with a Phase I supply.

Our dedicated, multi-functional, cross-trained teams specialises in preparing materials for early phase clinical studies and consists of experienced people who are trained to perform all steps from the first stage of protocol interpretation through to dispatch of supplies to the investigator site.
