Quality Assurance

At Caligor, quality is at the heart of everything we do. To ensure the integrity of every product we procure, handle, and deliver, our quality processes include:

  • 200% quality checks, inspecting each product independently by two quality professionals, to identify any product issues, including packaging and labeling integrity, before shipment.
  • Supplier audits, including on-site visits, to verify that suppliers meet Caligor’s rigorous quality standards.
  • Temperature control at every step to ensure compliance with cold-chain or ambient temperature requirements.
  • Detailed documentation, including certificates of analysis and conformance, pedigree, BSE/TSE, and other documentation as required by specific countries.
  • Qualified Persons (QP) on staff who certify products in accordance with EU directives for pharmaceutical storage and distribution.
  • Adherence to quality standards, including ISO 9001 accreditation and compliance with GMP/GDP standards.
  • Robust SOPs to ensure full batch traceability in the event of a product recall.

Our extensive quality processes and vigilance ensure your confidence in the comparator drugs we provide.

Supply Logistics

Avoiding costly delays in your clinical trial is paramount. In addition to securing a reliable supply of comparators, we have optimized our logistics processes to expedite delivery while mitigating risk at every step in the supply chain through:

  • Quality and security monitoring to ensure product integrity and minimize the risk of counterfeits from procurement through delivery to your trial site. We comply strictly with GMP/GDP standards.
  • Temperature control at every step—throughout our storage and distribution facility as well as during transit—to comply with each product’s cold chain or ambient temperature requirements.
  • Rapid processing of shipments—within 24 to 72 hours—to maximize shelf life and minimize the risk of costly excess product at the clinical trial site.
  • Careful auditing of third-party couriers by our in-house QP to ensure compliance with our quality standards, including temperature control, monitoring, and documentation.

Our U.S. and UK logistics teams never forget that every shipment of pharmaceuticals plays an important role in improving the lives of patients.
