A Partner You Can Count On

“I knew I did not have the knowledge to shepherd this through an FDA filing without the experts who had done this many times before … in just three weeks we had working units in testing … and in five weeks, we had an FDA Emergency Use Authorization in hand. Wow, this just could not have happened without such a dedicated team with very broad skills and experience.”

Client’s VP of Regulatory Affairs

“The speed with which we were able to move with Advarra helped us get [our] submission in sooner, and it also allowed for a much more high-quality submission with the FDA…We saved a considerable amount of time, which equated to saving, arguably, millions of dollars on the timeline to really get our approval moving forward with the FDA more quickly.”
