Global trial logistics specialists
The globalisation of clinical trials requires country-specific regulatory expertise. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies must be able to understand changes around international drug sourcing and import and export requirements to remain compliant. With global experience spanning six continents, CSI provides targeted solutions to serve trials worldwide, sourcing and supplying medicines, medical devices and ancillaries to Europe, the United States, Central and South America, and Asia-Pacific.

The gold standard for the clinical trial supply
Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are increasingly facing pressure to move candidates through the clinical trial pipeline quickly. Greater need for efficiency requires an expert comparator sourcing and supply chain partner that can alleviate disruptions to timelines, costs and product availability. CSI helps to grow trial pipelines and optimise trial performance. We are a proud supplier to top-ten pharmaceutical companies and leading biotechs.
Reducing risk, boosting success
CSI reduces risk across every part of the supply chain, boosting trial success rates by ensuring delivery of the right comparator drugs, devices and services at the right place and time, even for the most complex adaptive clinical trials.
Managing the entire supply chain
CSI manages the entire supply chain, allowing CROs to concentrate on finding patients and delivering successful trials. Our seamless supply management operations and distribution solutions ensure CROs can operate efficiently, saving time, money and resources.
Clinical Research Organisations (CROs)
Six areas of expertise drive CSI’s ability to effectively source comparators, medical devices and ancillaries:
A truly global footprint
Our CRO partners conduct studies all over the world. CSI’s strong global presence and expertise means we can support even the most complex studies and clinical supply requirements. With warehouses in more than 50 countries, we can efficiently and consistently provide solutions across Europe, the United States, Central and South America, and Asia-Pacific.
The science of clinical trial supply
CSI provides secure and transparent sourcing of products for a broad range of clinical trials across all therapeutic indications. With decades of combined experience in drug development, our team provides fully integrated, one-stop solutions. We pride ourselves on our ability to assist our partners with comparator identification, strategic guidance around the protocol, and cross-market regulatory advice.
Expertise you can rely on
Clinical trial supply chains require robust planning and management to ensure successful, reliable delivery. We provide regular forecasts to optimise timelines, ensure quality, maintain safety, comply with security standards, and remain on budget.
Quality is in our DNA
With longstanding relationships with MHRA and EMA, CSI’s regulatory and quality assurance experts provide expert advice. All our teams stay up to date with the latest government and agency requirements around the world, while our country-specific regulatory expertise minimises risk and guarantees compliance.
Adding value from the outset
By partnering with hospitals and research centres at an early stage of their studies, CSI can comprehensively assess clinical trial requirements from the outset, providing strategic solutions and utilising our extensive sourcing expertise. As a dedicated sourcing solution provider, CSI streamlines the entire procurement process, allowing researchers and healthcare professionals to focus on their core activities.
Hospitals and Academic Institutions
We take on the extra burden
We supply a diverse range of medications, comedications, ancillary products – such as lab kits, clinical site files and test tubes – and provide a printing service. This relieves our partners of administrative burdens, allowing them to focus their resources on trial patient recruitment.
Handling every aspect of trial supply
While Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) handle site qualification, CSI takes charge of assessing the study protocol and providing the necessary trial support services:
Calculating product quantities
Negotiating competitive pricing
Coordinating delivery schedules
Managing inventory levels
Minimising supply shortages and wastage
Your partner for cutting-edge research
CSI works closely with world-class academic institutions, universities, hospitals and research centres that are producing cutting-edge medical research. We support their clinical trials by providing a wide range of cost-effective and compliant comparator medicines and ancillaries.
