Scientific Consulting

With our Scientific Consulting services we develop together with our customers scientific concepts and product strategies to introduce or establish innovative substances and medical devices in the therapeutic environment. This includes scientific advice, research and analysis in the respective therapeutic area. We combine many years of experience in daily therapeutical routine with sound scientific expertise and our commitment to create sustainable value for all stakeholders.

Depending on the requirements we provide a team of internal and external experts. The Alcedis Biometrics provides sample size scenarios and the statistical design to ensure a reliable achievement of the planned endpoints. Together with the indication experts of the Medical Writing a steady scaffold for the scientific and financial planning is set-up.

Data Management

Our Data Management accompanies the clinical trial from the compilation of the Data Management and Data Validation Plan over Query Management to the closure of the database and giving over data for biometrical analyses. Our software solution Alcedis TRIAL pictures any data management activity. This permits effective communication with the sites as well as secure logging of all data revisions.


Our Pharmacovigilance Department attends all safety aspects of a clinical trial. In combination with the plugins of our Study Software AlcedisTRIAL, among other occurrences the receipt and forwarding of (S)AEs and SUSARs are monitored and regular reporting and reconciliation of the sponsor’s study database and safety database conducted.


Biometrics supports the sponsor with the entire service range for a clinical study – from planning to the final report.

The statistical methods and validity of the collected data are crucial for significant results. Alcedis Biometrics is therefore already involved in the planning of the study at an early phase and cooperates closely with the Data Management Department and Clinical Operations Department.

From the very beginning of each project statistical parameters play an important role to ensure the overall success of a clinical trial. Thus, the calculation of significant sample sizes is fundamental to the strategic design and should therefore be chosen carefully.

We would be glad to help you with your sample size calculation! Learn more about basic considerations on how to make your project successful.
