SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. The company employs over 97,000 people and operates a network of more than 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.

One of the business segments, SGS Life Science Services, is a leading contract research organization (CRO).
  SGS Life Science Services carries out all aspects of clinical research for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, from coordination and running of clinical trials via data processing and statistical analysis to report compilation. Clinical research consists of testing new molecules or techniques on human beings. SGS Life Science Services has also expertise in the quality control of pharmaceuticals. 


In a double blind clinical study, it is key that the subjects, the investigators and parties involved in interpretation and analysis, are unaware of the subject’s treatment. This means that for randomization information and for any other data of un-blinding nature (e.g. certain lab data), access is restricted to a very limited group of people, until the official un-blinding of the study takes place. At the Secure Data Office, we handle these limited access data. We are the turntable between the labs, the data management companies and the pharmaceutical companies and work in a secure environment to safeguard the blind for numerous clinical studies.
