Our Service Models
FTE plus -
An extension to your team
Precisely defining your experimental needs can be challenging, particularly when the drug development journey takes unexpected twists and turns. This unpredictability can be difficult to manage when working with an external research partner. Our FTE plus model has been designed with this in mind, giving you the ability to flex in response to your evolving requirements. The FTE plus study team, with dedicated Study Manager and Senior Project Lead, are carefully matched to your technical requirements. They embed themselves with your scientists, gaining a deep understanding of your project and its nuances to work collaboratively towards achieving your goals. Our aim is to enhance your scientific team; expanding your collective expertise, providing you with the agility you need to expedite your programs.
Fee-For-Service -
For defined project delivery
Whether you plan to access one of our platform systems or need custom assay development, the scope of most projects can be reasonably well-defined in advance or are simply stand-alone studies. Either way, our fee-for-service model is well-suited. Our technical specialists work with you from the beginning, at the project-scoping stage, to understand your request, advise on technical feasibility and work in consultation with you to define a clear project structure. This is agreed in advance and will form the guiding principles of the study that will be used by our scientists to deliver upon your key objectives.
