Clinical Facility

Research Development

Our Clinical Operations Facility has over 30,000 square feet of space and is capable of housing over 100 subjects. The environment is bright, comfortable and clean. The subject lounge is warm and relaxing and is furnished with a pool table and satellite TVs. The sleeping areas are private and there are quiet areas designated for reading and studying. Subjects are monitored regularly throughout the study by qualified medical personnel. We have a staff of approximately 100, trained to international standards for clinical studies.

Normally, a study would require that subjects remain in our clinical facility the night prior to trial commencement. The next day, subjects will be given a dose of a drug. Blood and/or urine samples will be taken at different timed intervals throughout the duration of the study and the amount of blood is usually no more than what is given to the Canadian Blood Services. Subjects would be required to repeat this procedure at a set time period (usually the following week).
