Simbec-Orion is a full service CRO, providing clinical management services from phase 1 to phase 3, plus additional clinical support. We have the capability to run fully integrated clinical trials, or provide stand-alone support for many aspects of your trials.

We aren’t the largest full service CRO, which comes with benefits: your trials will gain from the broad experience of a large organisation, with the compassion, personal service and care of a small one.

Scintigraphy Services

Gamma scintigraphy can play a vital role in drug product development, facilitating the determination of the biodistribution of dosage forms under physiological conditions. As such, it’s a core part of our CRO services.

Featuring an on-site scintigraphy suite and a long-standing partnership with Cardiff Scintigraphics Limited, Simbec-Orion has been providing integrated scintigraphy services for more than 25 years.


Our pharmacovigilance specialists will help you assess the potential risks of your drug product, with a core focus on drug safety.

Through the collection and continuous evaluation of clinical safety data throughout the clinical development process, they will assess and monitor the incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs).

We have over 40 years experience in first-in-human and early phase studies. Learn what it’s all about at Simbec-Orion.

Clinical Trial Data Management & Biometrics Services

Our expert biometrics team delivers accurate and adaptive clinical data management services that support the success of your drug development programme.

Conducting statistical analysis, planning, and reporting across all clinical phases, they will create a quality biostatistical framework that presents clinical trial data clearly and correctly for regulatory agencies.

Central Laboratory Services

Our multi-disciplinary team of experienced laboratory scientists and project managers provide rapid clinical trial testing for our clinical pharmacology studies from their on-site laboratories.

The same facilities also offer both integrated or standalone central laboratory services for clinical development studies, delivering a tailor-made central laboratory service solution for both biotech and pharma companies, as well as services for other CROs.

Clinical pharmacology

As a full-service facility, we carry out all types of studies at our purpose-built site. 90% of our work is with Investigational Medicinal Products, in all drug delivery routes.

Clinical pharmacology is a key part of our CRO services, so if you need support managing a clinical trial, there are many ways our expertise can help.

Clinical development

For the last three decades, we’ve been managing clinical trials with all product types including vaccines, NCEs, antisense therapy, small molecules, peptides, antibodies, and more.

With experience like this, we really understand clinical development in challenging therapy areas including our specialities of rare disease and oncology.

We are a smaller, but still full service, CRO. Experience an attentive, reactive and bespoke service, with the fully integrated processes and expertise of a larger organisation.
