Bio-services Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
Bio-services involve preclinical and clinical researches done by following the standards laid down by regulatory bodies. Clinical research organizations (CRO) segment their researches by contracts, manufacturing, and clinical trials. A clinical trial is a time consuming process, and specifies testing of the new drugs on specific people or for particular diseases. CRO can be divided into captive and independent. The former involves developing and testing of developed drug in-house whereas the latter involves testing of drugs developed by some other organization. ...
