Preclinical Research

Defining a successful (and appropriately scoped) preclinical strategy is an important component of the R&D pathway from Research to Development and to, ultimately, Commercialization.  At Oculos, we take a hard look at our clients’ products, help establish a target product profile (TPP) and develop a preclinical strategy that will be acceptable to the global regulatory agencies.  And, once the strategy is set and accepted (perhaps as part of a pre-IND meeting), Oculos will conduct the testing in our Rochester, NY facility.  Our GMP, GLP and AAALAC-accredited testing facility can support your preclinical needs – pharma, device and diagnostic.

Examples of the services we provide in this space include:
