Pre-clinical research

Smooth Drug Development provides services for pre-clinical studies at leading laboratories.

Studies in animals – an important stage in the development of innovative and generic drugs in terms of getting the data for further study in humans and marketing approval. Quality of the experiment plan determines not only time and costs of development, but also defines reliable results that will influence the future place of the product on market.

In accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, our company is very attentive to the choice of laboratories. Before they get to the list of approved suppliers, laboratories pass a selection process that includes an assessment of the documentation and quality audit. In the future, we conduct regular audit of the laboratory, as well as for-cause audits.
