  36. 37. <ul><li>Quality </li></ul><ul><li> “ Our company has placed studies at QPS Bio-Kinetic for over 10 years, including the key pharmacokinetic study assessing Drug X components, as well as many of our postmenopausal women, Drug Y pilot bioavailability studies, and all of our pivotal bioequivalence studies. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>One wouldn't normally think of Springfield, Missouri, as a major CRO site, but the types of subjects they continually enroll are just solid, middle-class citizens with excellent retention for a clinical study. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>For our pivotal Drug Y BE studies, we routinely enroll over 70 postmenopausal women subjects and no other site in this country or EU can enroll and dose them in one day, as can be done at QPS Bio-Kinetic. QPS Bio-Kinetic is planned as a site for all future Drug Y BE studies. Having served on the Drug Y team and been involved in many management presentations, there is simply no way we can make our timelines and meet our project objectives without using this site.” </li></ul><ul><li>— Phil M. </li></ul><ul><li>Assistant VP of Clinical Pharmacology </li></ul>
  37. 38. <ul><li>Quality </li></ul><ul><li>“ When we look for clinical research sites, we prefer smaller organizations that understand the unique pressures of optimizing speed, quality and price we face as a small company. We demand they be trustworthy, can perform the protocol as directed, are able to communicate study progress and are focused on client service. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I have worked with QPS Bio-Kinetic for many years, in particular for BE/BA, DDI and cardiac safety studies. Because of their experienced staff, training and detailed processes, I am confident I can count on qualified study participants, quality data and PK samples to be drawn on time. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I trust QPS Bio-Kinetic to tell me when they don’t have the capacity to perform my study according to my specifications or timeline. Based on their history of meeting my expectations and my trust in the QPS Bio‑Kinetic staff, QPS Bio-Kinetic has become my first choice as a clinical site.” </li></ul><ul><li> — Jim M. </li></ul><ul><li>Senior Director, Clinical Development </li></ul>
