SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scientist.com, the biopharma industry’s leading R&D marketplace, today announced the expansion of VERIF.i, the company’s supplier pre-assessment program, to include Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC). CMC suppliers undergo an independent 3rd party pre-assessment, which can then be shared with their entire customer base.
“On-site lab assessments are expensive, time-consuming and labor intensive. VERIF.i alleviates this by enabling an independent 3rd party to confirm that a supplier meets a customer’s research and regulatory requirements,” stated Matt McLoughlin, Sr. VP of Categories & Compliance at Scientist.com. “Pre-assessments help customers speed up supplier selection and purchase highly technical services with more confidence and less risk.”
The pre-assessments performed under VERIF.i are completed with the same independence and objectivity as a study-specific audit but can be applied across multiple clients, saving suppliers time, money and resources. VERIF.i also gives suppliers of regulated research services, such as human biospecimen acquisition—and now chemistry, manufacturing and controls—the opportunity to proactively communicate their quality standards against pre-defined criteria developed with industry partners for use across the biopharma industry.
