Import of Clinical Ancillary Supplies into China

Import of Clinical Ancillary Supplies into China


Clinical ancillary supplies

Clinical trials require a wide variety of ancillary supplies such as diagnostic, medical, laboratory, drug delivery equipment, instruments, consumables, and other general supplies.

Some examples of commonly used ancillaries include refrigerators, centrifuges, computers, ECG machines, and glucose meters, as well as consumables such as gloves, alcohol swabs, face masks, and test strips. Trials of diabetes, vaccine, cardiovascular, and oncology generally require a high level of ancillary products.

A clinical trial cannot begin unless both the Investigational Medicinal Products and ancillary components are in place. Ancillaries have become more sophisticated as sponsors embrace patient-focused treatments and precision medicine. Hence, sponsors should equally focus their attention on supplying ancillaries in clinical trials.
