Marken offers unmatched access to a global network of strategically located, purpose-built pharmaceutical service depots and a full suite of custom-tailored services.

Marken is the world leader in the retrieval and delivery of biological specimens for clinical trials, and we currently serve over 49,000 investigator sites in over 150 countries around the globe. At Marken, we provide total management of the collection, storage, and logistics of clinical trial specimens from the investigator site to the central lab or to a specialty lab. With access to every corner of the globe, we’re uniquely qualified to manage this critical service anywhere in the world.

We can collect specimens from investigator sites, temporarily store them at our depots for batching, and then ship them to a central lab. This service can greatly reduce both shipping and handling, and potentially reduce your testing costs.

Where temperature or humidity sensitive reagents are used for specimen testing at a central or specialty lab, Marken can also handle the distribution and handling of these products. This provides the reagent supplier or testing lab with the assurance that the reagent will not lose its efficacy.

Temperature Controlled storage and shipment

Marken’s ISO 9001:2008 certification and ongoing training programs mean specimens are handled in ways appropriate to their temperature requirements and in complete compliance with guidelines from the FDA, IATA, UN and other bodies. Clinical trials in remote corners of the globe are now almost as convenient as those in urban areas because Marken can collect, store, aggregate, pack, and ship specimens directly to a laboratory.
