Allowing Companies to focus on what they do best

There are a growing number of smaller companies specializing in discovery and development. Traditionally development companies have sold their products in late stage development to larger companies who complete the clinical studies and commercialize the product. However there are an increasing number of these smaller companies who see the added value of completing registration and commercialization themselves.

The core competencies, skills and experience of these companies are naturally in product development and in expanding their portfolio of development assets.

Verta Life Sciences specialize in supporting these groups by managing the supply and commercialization of new products starting at late clinical development and/or after commercial approval, allowing the product’s owners to realize maximum revenue while staying focused on the next development.

Specifically we take all responsibility for the supply of products globally, including all aspects of:

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Sourcing and Managing manufacturing
  • Establishing and Managing sales and operation planning processes
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Quality Management
  • Logistics and inventory management
  • Marketing
  • Commercialization

We have helped companies launch and manage new products with annual sales ranging from thousands of units for specialty products, to large scale commercial products with sales in excess of $5bn.

We do this by developing and implementing robust Product Introduction Plans that:

  • Manage the supply of Phase II and Phase III clinical trial materials to ensure clinical trials have sufficient product to meet demand.
  • Identify and select suitable manufacturing partners for phase III and launch.
  • Manage the Technology Transfer Process to new manufacturing partners and sites as required.
  • Design new packaging and artwork.
  • Manage the implementation of new manufacturing technology and processes at manufacturing and supply partner’s sites.
  • Manage the selection and establishment of third party logistics and distribution service providers, including import/export requirements.
  • Plan for the successful launch of new products by establishing pre-launch supply plans that provide sufficient product to meet launch and growth projections.
  • Implement sales and operational planning processes to ensure product supply and manage inventory levels.
