Clinical Services

BDD has proven expertise in early phase clinical research and has supported the pharmaceutical industry in understanding in vivo product performance for over 20 years with bespoke clinical services in our GCP accredited clinical facility.

We recognise the complexities of drug development and have created an integrated clinical and manufacturing service to enable rapid in vivo evaluation of new products saving our clients considerable time and expense during product development. ​

At BDD we focus on low volume, high value studies which utilise clinical tools such as Gamma Scintigraphy and BDD Swift to provide our clients with clear answers to how their drug delivery systems perform in vivo. ​
