Avoid Clinical Trial Disruption in South Africa

Marken utilizes global network to reach patients throughout the world

During this critical time, while countries like South Africa are extremely limited with transport options, Marken utilizes our global network to safely transport biological sample shipments out of the country and ship clinical drug products to sites and patients. Our fully operational status ensures we can move your clinical trial forward to/from challenging lanes or countries.

Contact your local Marken branch or your business development professional to learn more about our incentives to add new lanes to your trial and reach more patients.
