Covance has acquired Sciformix in a deal that augments the CRO’s pharmacovigilance capabilities for post-approval safety solutions and expands its global footprint.

Covance, LabCorp’s contract research organization (CRO) business, has acquired Sciformix Corporation, a scientific process outsourcing company focused on pharmacovigilance and regulatory solutions.

“Sciformix enhances Covance’s offering, particularly in post-approval pharmacovigilance. Its capabilities are complementary with Covance’s existing Drug and Device Safety Solutions and Adjudication as well as Covance Market Access (CMA),”​ Sue Maynard, vice president, corporate communications, LabCorp, told Outsourcing-Pharma.com.

Sciformix provides post-marketing safety and risk management, clinical development support services, regulatory affairs and operations, technology services, and real-world evidence (RWE) solutions.

Maynard said: “The need for post-approval solutions is driven by many factors including momentum in new product launches, and increasing expectations for safety monitoring during later stages of development and post approval.”

Sciformix – which Maynard said will “largely operate as an independent business unit”​ – has 1,100 employees are based in Asia, further expanding Covance’s global footprint.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
