Clinical Trial Supplies: CTS2013


The Brussels CST2013 – Clinical Trial Supply 2013 symposium is a premier discussion designed with direct contribution and aid of practitioners. Colleagues and experts engaged in both strategic and daily activities concerning bottle necks within the clinical trial supply management. CTS 2013 is intended for professionals from the field concerned with expanding their knowledge base, learning and bench marking from practical and new clinical trial supply cases.
The programme draws strength from addressing fundamental difficulties and critical points within the CTS Chain such as Technology (IVRS) and Data integration, Labelling (booklets) and packaging,Qualified Person (role) to Material Forecasting among others. Other issues such as the corrective interpretation of regulatory, standardisation of processes and international requirements are also assessed.  These may include Good Clinical Practice (GCP), EU Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC – Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP): Article 9 or Article 13.  And GMP: EudralexVol 4 - EU GMP Guide; Orange Guide, part one as well as annex 13 dedicated Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs).
The symposium covers key drivers and inhibitors in relation to where the main focus will be within the next 12 to 18 months.  A homogenous set of challenges have been identified subject to the nature of clinical supplies/studies.  We suggest the requirements to deal and manage them effectively be they multi-country CTS chains or inventory limitations are similar in nature.  Accordingly if you are dealing or responsible for CTS chain/s you will find the conference to be an unmatched learning experience.

    Thank you the platform as promised was end user driven and I really appreciate that only two other competitors were accepted on site. We do not see the need to for any further marketing investment. I thank you again and will see again next year.

    - Mr MertensLeClercq, Wallonia, Belgium

    All in one approach! I certainly enjoyed the sessions – but the networking was exceptionally outstanding.

    - Dr Jurgen Becker, Darmstadt, Germany

    The symposium was refreshing to say the least, and while it is true that it is was end user driven I must admit to see a limited quality vendors was something I have not experienced before.

    - Mr A. Blanc – Montpelier, France

    joined this event to learn and benchmark from other pharma companies – but the support I received in meeting and hearing all the presentation was truthfully outstanding. This is a must attend event if you want to learn something new and unique.

    - Mrs A. Van De Lange, Netherlands

    We attend many conferences and must admit your current strategy of non-commercial approach must be the key to have so many end users attending. I can truthfully say we learned what the market and customers are looking for and we will reposition for next year.

    - Mr C. Atkins, Cambridge, United Kingdom

    “We are very pleased to be part of this event; I describe it as a fantastic opportunity to network with a list of who is who in the market.”
