Sponsor / CRO information
Experience, expertise and facility to meet the individual needs of each sponsor and research protocol
The Pacific Research Network locations were carefully considered. Our facility was meticulously custom designed and constructed, employing all the knowledge of our experience. We are convinced that our units are “State of the Art”. We are equipped with the experience, expertise and the research unit facility to meet the individual needs of each sponsor and research protocol. The 6,000 square foot facility in San Diego and Rancho Bernardo are not hospitals, they are not hotel, nor an ICU, but they are custom designed Clinical Pharmacology Research Units.
Quality & Integrity
Pacific Research Network uses a validated environmental monitoring system to ensure the quality and integrity of all pharmacy room temperatures, refrigerated / frozen drugs and samples stored within the research facility. Security Cameras are stratigically placed throughout the research facility, both inside and outside, to monitor and record all activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Entry and Exit doors, including fire exits, are alarmed with audible sirens at all times to secure controlled access to and from Pacific Research Network. Separation between volunteer inpatient and outpatient areas are strictly secured with locked doors accessible only by staff members with swipe-cards / push-button security codes.
Our clinical research facility in San Diego is protected by a stand-by 40k watt natural gas generator. In the event of loss of California Power & Light power to the building, the strong, but quiet generator automatically detects the loss and starts providing power to all essential portions of the facility. This includes: all the refrigerators, freezers, centrifuges, and security monitoring equipment. The natural gas supply allows the generator to work without interruption for an extended period of time.
