Understanding your
specific issues

We have long and successful working relationships with medical device companies so we understand, perhaps more than most other CROs, the particular issues they face. Medical Devices is a broad category, ranging from simple supports to complex and intricate electronic equipment. However, many products compete in a commoditised marketplace so the budgets available for R&D are more limited than those available for pharmaceuticals. Also, recent regulatory changes now demand a higher standard of clinical trial data evidence in order to achieve licenses to market new products.

Delivering what
your study needs

We are cost effective

Our strength in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe means we can offer rapid access to significant patient populations delivering excellent value to the sponsors we collaborate with.

We have the local knowledge

With offices and teams located in 17 locations across Europe, we have amassed an in-depth understanding of local regulations and legislation across the continent.

We have the sector experience

Most CROs work predominantly for pharmaceutical and biotech clients. With our track record it is unlikely that you will find a full-service, pan-European CRO with as much medical device study experience as us.

“Optimapharm (data management and statistics teams) have solved a multitude of problems for us, always in a practical way, adjusted to times and that makes us continue to trust them in more ambitious clinical projects.”

Iñaki Izquierdo, Head of Clinical Development & Medical Advice, Uriach
