The client outsourced in vivo rodent studies to a contract research organization (CRO), leading to unsatisfactory results. The contract research organization failed to meet their needs, resulting in poor outcomes including delays and high failure rates.
The high failure rates in the preclinical testing were attributed to user error at the CRO due to lack of experience in the biomethodology essential to the development of the clients’ novel therapies. The long delays and high failure rates resulted in excessive budget spend and missed target dates.
Building their own vivarium was cost-prohibitive and would set their schedule back at least a year. Outsourcing to another contract research organization and hoping for better results was risky.
The Solution: Own Your Science
With Mispro’s full-service contract vivarium, the client was able to conduct and control their own studies, while Mispro took care of the rest.
Mispro offers vivarium space and services which allows clients to conduct their own in vivo animal studies, giving them control of critical data collection in preclinical trials. Mispro manages the research environment, the care and handling of research animals, and the necessary regulatory compliance oversight. Studies conducted in Mispro's facilities benefit from Mispro's high-quality and ethical animal care and stable and efficient research environments.
As a result, the client was able to launch quickly and scale their preclinical animal studies at their own pace. The client hired a principal investigator (PI) experienced in the biomethodology needed to support their cutting edge studies and they were able to collect and validate critical data sets in a fraction of the time they had spent waiting for results from the CRO.
