Our clinical trial packaging services ensure that your investigational products are packaged with precision and compliance, meeting the highest standards of quality and regulatory requirements. From labeling to distribution, we provide tailored solutions that support the unique needs of your clinical trials, ensuring seamless and efficient delivery to trial sites worldwide.

Thermo Fisher’s fully owned cGMP facilities support ambient, refrigerated, and frozen packaging capabilities, and are strategically located around the globe to accommodate regional needs. An integrated IT system links the facilities to give clients control over inventory via barcode standards. Our global clinical packaging services include primary packaging, secondary packaging, pre-filled syringe assembly and labeling, and smart packaging to improve medication adherence.

Labeling: Producing clinical trial labels demands greater oversight and management than commercial labeling to maintain the integrity of blind studies and comply with stringent regulatory controls. Our advanced inspection software, comprehensive in-house printing capabilities, translation and regulatory approval management, and centralized web-based document management platform are specifically designed to reduce overall label cycle times.
