Bibra’s team of 15 toxicologists has a combined total of over 250 person years of experience in this field. All of their consultants are experts in the field of toxicology. They have completed many engagements for different customers across a broad range of disciplines. What about governmental compliance work? Bibra has a relationship with many governmental regulatory agencies, in the UK and internationally. Recently, their team worked with an unnamed international industrial chemicals manufacturer on compliance work. They worked with them to adhere to the United States Toxic Substances Control Act (TCSA) in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). This compliance work can be found in the Recent Projects section of their website. Their team always meets their deadlines, an essential for success in clinical trials.

The Medical Writing practice at TRA360 looks for companies that can add value to our clients. CIRION Central Laboratory is a mid-sized Canadian-based contract research laboratory that helps biotech and pharmaceutical companies through the clinical testing process. Their goal upon establishment was to design an organization that can offer companies resources for their clinical trials and expertise in the sciences.
But what do they do? According to the CIRION website they “offer the complete range of services of a larger organization with the added personalized attention and dedication you expect for your projects, regardless of their size.” They also provide services in the development of assays and have the capability to validate per GLP standards. In addition to GLP , they are are also compliant with and adherent to GCP regulations. In addition, CIRION is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Do they send out their work, or do it on site? CIRION has the ability to run all of their tests and assays in-house which ensures the consistent quality across their testing. This also allows for cost saving and rigorous control of the tests being done.
What do they have for experience? The scientist that work with CIRION all have a science background and a knowledge of clinical logistics for the benefit of the customer. CIRION’s talent pool includes scientists that have experience in biologistics, biosimilars, biomarkers, biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, microbiology, and molecular assays. Each project is assigned a project manager with the appropriate qualifications for that project. This ensures that the quality of their projects are up to the best of their ability.
What do you get when you add science, technology, and social media together? Some might think a really cool iPhone, or an app that allows self-diagnosis instead of a doctor. Although that would be pretty cool, earlier this week, Mashable reported the first-ever FDA-approved digestible digital pill.
This new pill comes equipped with a microchip roughly the same size as a particle of sand, which can be embedded in drugs to monitor patients’ response to various treatments and medical conditions. One of the digital pill’s most valuable attributions is the ability to track how well (or poorly) the drug is reacting to and ultimately working with the patient’s system through an embedded sensor that contains small amounts of magnesium and copper. Mashable describes, “When a patient swallows it, the pill generates slight voltage which responds to digestive juices. The voltage sends a signal to a patch worn by the patient, which transmits relevant information to a health care provider’s mobile device.”
As a life science company with a focus on pharma and biotech, we are constantly exploring new advancements in health care and bio. Social media has reached new levels since the rise of the Internet and social networks. However, very few have attempted to mix the two fields to create what could be a breakthrough in digital medicine. Yes, a digestible digital pill could potentially help medicine operate more effectively because results are coming back straight to the source, however, we won’t really know until we try…would you?
