Aptus Clinical United Kingdom

Exhibiting at booth 83/84

Aptus Clinical is a specialist UK- based oncology clinical research organisation which helps life science companies to optimise their clinical development strategies and effectively transform promising molecules into valued medicines.

What makes Aptus Clinical different is our flexibility – our clients benefit from our network of highly experienced and skilled experts from all technical disciplines, but only pay for what they need, when they need it. Our scientists have global expertise in all aspects of drug development so no challenge is too great, and being highly professional, they integrate seamlessly into a client organisation. This gives our clients all the benefits of an in-house clinical department, but at 
a significantly lower cost. In addition, our well-established relationships with some of the world’s leading experimental cancer centres, access to large patient populations and flexible arrangements to support optimal project delivery are just a few of the benefits to be gained from working with Aptus Clinical.

Whether you need one-off consultancy support, clinical SOP implementation, expert medical or scientific input on a short or long term basis, or a full trial programme, we’d love to hear from you.

Crystec United Kingdom

Crystec applies the latest supercritical fluid (SCF) technology to improve the design and performance of medicines. We provide crystal and particle engineering solutions to the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, contributing to human health by enabling new and more effective therapies. Crystec’s modified supercritical anti-solvent (mSAS) technology can be applied to small and large drug molecules in a range of dosage forms.

Our services include crystal form screening and particle design (including composite particles and co-crystals), addressing issues of poor solubility and stability, improved delivery, and product enhancement in support of lifecycle management. Our process is scaled to GMP manufacturing levels. We are also engaged in in-house programmes to develop improved products and currently have licensing opportunities available in several therapeutic areas, including urge incontinence and fungal infections.

The first product based on SCF technology is expected to launch this year. It is an inhaled product for migraine, exploiting the benefits SCF processing brings to enable exceptional particle size control and deep lung deposition. The particle design and scale-up to GMP for this product were managed by members of the Crystec team.

If you are interested in understanding how mSAS could accelerate your product development, contact us for more information – emily.bevis@crystecpharma.com

Nucleus is a collaboration tool that brings people, applications and documents together in a single compliant environment. Unlike other vendors in our space, the platform is software agnostic allowing inclusion of other third party solutions. Access can be achieved via single sign on or addition of the relevant link within the Nucleus platform. This enables us to include any number of technologies that may be of value to our customers whilst being aware of industry and legal requirements around data and privacy. With the move towards patient centred research, Nucleus can also provide a place where patients can see their data and also communicate with the key people working in their trial.


Collect, manage and report on your clinical data from a single, scalable system. Whether at the very start or nearing the end of your trial, nowEDC will increase your visibility of the data your sites are working hard to collect, providing you with clean, consistently reliable data.
