WHY ACS?

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city and has a patient/volunteer regional catchment population of around 2 million.

ACS is situated directly opposite Auckland’s leading tertiary referral hospital, Auckland City Hospital (ACH) and has access to a full range of medical specialities and LabPLUS, ACH’s premier medical laboratory.

Auckland is fortunate in having many clinical research groups in most therapeutic disciplines associated with the Auckland School of Medicine and Auckland’s major tertiary hospitals. These researchers are fully supportive and keen to participate in joint ventures and recruit patients for Phase I and II studies.

ACS is within walking distance of New Zealand’s major university, the University of Auckland; many of the students are willing to participate in healthy volunteer studies. ACS now has more than 4,000 names on its volunteer data-base.

Quality Assurance is an integral part of ACS. Standard Operating Procedures have been adopted from CCST and modified for use in the Auckland unit. ACS has been subject to many of Sponsor audits without significant findings. We have also had a number of successful qualification audits and pre-placement visits as well as a Regulatory Authority inspection.

The favourable New Zealand economic environment and supportive Regulatory system enables us to offer timely and quality services at a competitive price.

When CRO services are required, ACS can tailor these to your needs.
