Fisher BioServices supports clinical trials in numerous ways, including acquiring and distributing clinical agents and the design and assembly of biospecimen collection kits. Recently, the staff members at the Clinical Agent and Specimen Repository (CASR), which Fisher BioServices operates for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), were challenged to support a particularly unique clinical trial: The efficacy of fluconazole in the treatment of Valley Fever.
Stories From Our Clients
"Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime study is a unique in that owners participate with their dogs and their regular clinical veterinarians. This has added a challenge of “site” training and monitoring. Fisher BioServices mitigated this challenge by implementing a process to check the volume of parent samples received prior to aliquoting, to assist with quality assurance and control with study protocols (appropriate sample volumes)."
"As Juventas’ Senior Director for all tasks associated with CMC and supply of IP for early and late stage clinical studies Fisher BioService has figured prominently in that chain including labeling, finishing, storage and shipment of IP to clinical sites in the US. My interactions with Fisher BioServices in this regard has been rather continuous in nature over the past 3+ years as JVS has evaluated both active and placebo IP in a variety of study indications, most importantly the gene therapy treatment of heart failure and peripheral artery disease. Fisher BioServices has consistently provided excellent PM characterized by effective/timely communications in dealing with all requests and inquiries regardless of the hour of the day or day of the week. I have found the team to be well experienced in devising and implementing solutions to problems that inevitably surface. Most importantly the Fisher BioServices team has demonstrated a commitment to each of JVS’ projects as though the project was under their own umbrella."

“During a highly complex and challenging study, the project management team at Fisher went above and beyond to ensure just-in-time appropriately blinded shipment of our drug (which was in limited supply), appropriate management and distribution of our study kits, and careful management of our inventory to ensure budgets were preserved. The individual attention to detail from this experience is what has made me want to work with Fisher for future studies.”
