Direct to Patient

For patients that find it difficult to get to the clinical sites, because they are either too ill, busy or find it difficult to travel, Direct to Patient (DtP) is the best method for a clinical trial shipment.

The SMO Group DtP platform enables sponsors to conduct trials that would be all but impossible with traditional supply chains: trials involving a rare disease, orphan indication or a dispersed patient population.

SMO Group can arrange all types of temperature controlled storage, the secure delivery of IMPs, NIMP’s or specialized equipment and the collection of biological samples to and from the patients’ home.
