    Results of First Ever REMOTE Clinical Trial

    In the clinical research industry, we’re always evaluating things.  We evaluate drugs and biologics.  We evaluate medical devices.  We also evaluate research techniques.  Yes, we try trials.  We study studies.  That’s what Pfizer was doing when it launched its REMOTE pilot trial in early 2011 – evaluating the effectiveness of a study in which patients participated remotely, without ever having to visit a study site.  How would the results of the REMOTE study compare with those of a similar, completed, conventional study?  Would this innovative research approach be validated?

    Marken collected a shipment from southern Sweden that was bound for next-day delivery in northern Belgium. However, all airline flights into Belgium were cancelled as a result of a strike action by airport workers.

  • Understanding Test And Measurement Equipment Performance In The Laboratory

    Any good Quality Manager knows that assumptions about an instrument can lead to unpleasant surprises during the calibration cycle. Test and measurement equipment play a critical role in most production and development processes. These instruments are used to make decisions regarding the effectiveness of processes and to ensure product quality. By Michael Boetzkes, Quality Manager, Vaisala Canada Inc. Life Science Division
