Boca Biolistics is the First CRO to Participate in VERIF.i®, Scientist.com’s New Supplier Pre-assessment Program
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 26, 2021--
Scientist.com, the pharmaceutical industry’s leading R&D marketplace, announced today that VERIF.i ®, the company’s new supplier pre-assessment program, has officially launched with the successful completion of an on-site assessment of Boca Biolistics’s biorepository facilities. VERIF.i was developed to help both sides of the Scientist.com marketplace. Pre-assessments help suppliers such as Boca Biolistics demonstrate their quality and capabilities, while helping pharma and biotech customers select regulated services in an accelerated manner with more confidence and less risk.
“We have always been confident in the quality of our facilities and the personnel that operate them,” stated Joseph Mauro, Chief Vision Officer at Boca Biolistics. “VERIF.i allows us to demonstrate our expertise to current and future clients of Scientist.com’s marketplace as well as to our existing clientele outside of the platform.”
Boca Biolistics is a hybrid contract research organization (CRO) with an integrated life science biorepository, offering central laboratory testing as well as clinical trial services. The company procures human biospecimens from around the world for commercial product development and the advancement of precision medicine. VERIF.i enables Boca Biolistics and other suppliers of regulated research services to communicate their standards against pre-defined criteria developed for the biopharma industry and then confirm them through independent, third-party auditors that carry out an on-site inspection.
“On-site assessments are expensive, resource intensive and time consuming for customers and suppliers,” stated Matt McLoughlin, Sr. VP of Categories and Compliance at Scientist.com. “VERIF.i standardizes and simplifies the process for both sides of the market. It enables suppliers to differentiate themselves from their peers while enabling customers to gain valuable, unbiased insight into a supplier’s facilities, personnel and processes.”
