Clario has been supporting respiratory clinical trials for more than 50 years, helping our customers achieve their goals at more than 80,000 sites worldwide.
Generating meaningful, valid, high-quality data in respiratory studies is notoriously difficult, but Clario leverages decades of experience and the latest tools and technologies to reduce data variability, identify outliers and produce exceptional data – study after study.
Flexible solutions for capturing respiratory endpoints
- Customized devices – Clario provides devices customized for clinical study workflows, enabling collection of full, high-resolution spirometry curves and other PFT metrics.
- Paper study support – Sponsors looking to use existing site equipment can leverage a paper-based approach and still benefit from Clario’s data management, overread and reporting services.
- Technician training – Clario empowers clinicians through expert training conducted either virtually, on site or at regional investigator meetings. All technicians must demonstrate repeatable proficiency acquiring a quality test that meets the ERS/ATS standards.
Industry-leading data management, analysis and insights
- Centralized data hub – Clario’s centralized EXPERT® platform ensures data uniformity, accessibility and security. Sites and sponsors can instantly upload pulmonary function test results and have real-time visibility to patient and site data, enabling timely trial decisions.
- Overread, analysis and reports – Our experts across the globe utilize an indication-specific overread strategy and can even provide one-hour express overread for immediate results while the patient is still on-site. Clario also offers advanced reporting tools to proactively identify trial compliance and performance issues.
- Site quality and patient eligibility – For half a century, Clario has collected proprietary data on the performance of 1000’s of sites. Combined with tools that simplify patient eligibility, Clario provides the insights necessary to minimize recruitment time and cost.
