  • SGS Life Science Services, which provides analytical, bioanalytical, and clinical trial testing and process management capabilities to the life sciences industry, has selected Oracle Health Sciences LabPas to help accelerate subject recruitment, data capture and analysis, and improve workflows in Phase I trials.
  • The organization will use Oracle Health Sciences LabPas -- delivered via the highly scalable and secure Oracle Health Sciences Cloud -- to automate Phase I clinical trial processes and to better integrate early-phase study data with its clinical data management system in order to expedite studies and improve insight. The project will be set up in SGS' Antwerp, Belgium, clinical unit.
