Leading Intelligence for Every Research Program

Speed and Agility for Phase I and Beyond

Collaboration between the primary study contact and the primary IRB reviewer helps streamline the transfer of study materials to the IRB. Pre-review processes can identify potential issues or discrepancies in a submission, giving you time to rectify matters before IRB review. Advarra also offers Performance Data Quicklist (PDQ), the tool that helps sponsors and CROs accelerate study startup and gain unparalleled visibility into site performance.

Flexibility for Large and Multinational Megatrials

Even as trials progress through Phase IV, Advarra can scale review and compliance services and tap an outstanding network of experts for particularly large, unique or complex projects. Advarra’s processes and technology ensure transparency while simplifying system/site onboarding, while a collaborative approach to project management helps coordinators stay engaged and informed throughout the submission and review process.

Therapeutic Expertise

By applying deep expertise across all major therapeutic areas, Advarra continues to pioneer highly specialized review services for areas such as oncology and neurology. Across all major and niche therapeutic areas, throughout every phase of research, Advarra provides expert-led IRB services.

Support for Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Diagnostic Products

Leveraging deep regulatory expertise and broad therapeutic experience, Advarra will help you navigate the changing regulatory requirements and ensure appropriate human subject protections regardless of the product being studied. Beyond supporting pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical product studies, Advarra has reviewed all categories of device studies, with IRB review experience including implantable and portable devices, diagnostic tools, mobile medical devices, human factors testing and HUD/HDE studies.

Technology Enabled Solutions for Streamlined Processes

Center for IRB Intelligence (CIRBI) Platform

The Online Platform Setting the Gold Standard in Review Quality, Submission Turnaround Time and Document Accessibility

Shorten Your Site Activation Timeline
Traditional site activation can take up to two-thirds of your enrollment cycle, which often forces studies to be delayed. Advarra’s unique IRB-Ready® approach and proprietary CIRBI Platform can cut your site activation time in half.

Improve Your Communication
Advarra delivers on the promise of time-saving technologies with the CIRBI Platform, the fully electronic platform that provides secure, direct communication of critical information and a real-time view of the review process and status, keeping you connected and facilitating your work on the go.

Make Informed Decisions
The CIRBI Platform will empower you to track your research sites’ approvals in real time. On-demand reporting via CIRBI will also help you identify issues and make decisions that keep your trial moving.

eConsent Technology

eConsent technologies can improve subject understanding and help research participants make informed decisions about participation in your research study. In many cases, eConsent solutions may also streamline the consenting process and reduce operational complexity. Advarra can support the development of your eConsent with your internal team as well as third-party vendors. Advarra is fully eConsent-capable and has the experience to help you navigate the electronic informed consent review process.
