Comparator Sourcing

Generic or branded drug acquisition

Comparator Drug Sourcing

Moving medicine forward


Our Comparator Sourcing solution is tailored to meet manufacturers’ need for product integrity, simplicity, and fair pricing to source branded or generic products for use during clinical trials or other research initiatives.

If there is any doubt as to the source or integrity of a drug, it can jeopardize a trial and have significant financial implications. Leveraging our trusted industry relationships, we only obtain comparator products directly from drug companies. We offer access to U.S commercially available branded, generic, and specialty drugs for study use, and ancillary items for clinical trials and research.
