As a result of their involvement in the iMATCH Project, Aptus Clinical are now able to offer a full Clinical Data Management service, offering a wide range of services from eCRF Design, EDC Build, Medical Coding to Data Cleaning and Laboratory Management. The creation of this department would not have been possible without the support of Innovate UK and this has resulted in the recruitment of two new permanent members of staff in the past 6 months.
In addition, Datatrial and Aptus Clinical have been working together to co-develop a new electronic trial master file (eTMF) system, based on the Nucleus platform. This innovative solution is intended to provide a cost effective and efficient solution for use in early phase clinical trials. The latest release of the Nucleus platform, including the initial version of eTMF was released in July and is now being used for the exemplar study in the iMATCH project. Further development will continue throughout 2019, with the commercial release of Nucleus eTMF scheduled for February 2020.
