FLEXDIRECT® DECENTRALIZED TRIAL SERVICES
Catalent’s FlexDirect® service supports your decentralized and hybrid trials with site-to-patient (STP) and direct-to-patient (DTP) services that enable clinical supplies to be sent directly to patients’ homes. Through our site-to-patient (STP) service, supplies are sent to the clinical sites who receive, store and dispense the patient kits to their homes as needed. Our DTP via the Catalent Pharmacy option (only available in the US) bypasses the clinical sites; our licensed Pharmacist-in-Charge dispenses clinical supply shipments from our pharmacy, located at our clinical supply facility in Philadelphia, PA, directly to patients’ homes.
