Clinical trial testing

Clinical trials & research studies

Clinical trials and research studies support innovative and transformative research and are critical pathways for testing the safety and effectiveness of new drugs, medical devices, and techniques for early detection of disease. They provide New Zealanders the chance to access different treatments or implement lifestyle changes to prevent illness and manage health challenges. They can also be used to inform Government policy.

Awanui laboratories and collection services play a key role in the success of clinical trials and research studies. Our core function is the collection and testing of the trial participant’s samples or the set up and validation of a new test or technology.

Our laboratories can provide cost effective, quality laboratory services that support clients such as clinical trial organisations, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, research companies and university departments amongst others.

Our laboratories and pathologists work regularly with research teams and clinicians throughout New Zealand in local and international trials including SHIVERS II, Oncology drug trials, and on a wide range of medical conditions including Rheumatic Fever.
