What is Atlantia's approach to data collection?

We use gold standard clinical measurements to validate and verify your data from both quantitative and qualitative clinical outcomes. We can test a host of endpoints from blood, stool, urine, saliva and other outputs. We work with a range of validated tools to assess and quantify patient reported outcomes across a vast array of measurement parameters. Data can be collected directly from patients or through validated tools to report on outcomes.

Our Clinical Trial Process

Study design is a significant phase of any clinical research project. At Atlantia we can plan and guide you to design a successful trial depending on your focus: to increase sales, obtain a health claim, or as a proof of efficacy.

Our regulatory services include ethical submissions and approvals, our team takes into account the regulatory environment of your organisation to provide highly compliant study design.

Atlantia excels in meeting recruitment milestones with a track record of success. Our access to diverse populations of all ages allows us to efficiently recruit anywhere from 20 to 600 participants per trial, always staying on time and on budget.

Our unique model boosts control, reduces the risk of data discrepancies, and gives our clients peace of mind by centralizing services within one expert organization rather than multiple contract research organizations.

At Atlantia your clinical data is at the centre of our service. When the samples are collected either during study visits or remotely they are prepared and stored at our facilities at -80*c, -20*C or refrigerated temperature and analysed by our research partners.

At Atlantia Clinical Research, our team offers a thorough study reporting service. Our statisticians follow ICH-GCP standards to create a detailed statistical study report, and upon request, we can provide a complete clinical study report as well.
