Preclarus® Investigator Site Portal

With the Preclarus investigator site portal,
you may never lose a sample again.

PPD® Laboratories’ central lab is pleased to announce the availability of the Preclarus® investigator site portal. This new portal was designed to make it easier for sites to manage their PPD clinical trials with online tools for subject registration, sample management and receiving test results.

One of the most exciting tools available in the Preclarus investigator site portal is online accessioning. This new capability allows sites to accession previously bar-coded samples before they leave the office. Once the connection has been made between the sample/patient information and bar code, the data is immediately available to PPD Laboratories. Online accessioning strengthens the chain of custody by giving sites and PPD Laboratories full visibility to all samples in real time.

The Preclarus investigator site portal also simplifies and streamlines sample shipping. The sample management tool keeps track of samples and helps sites organize shipments according to shipping conditions, schedule shipments, provides reminders when shipments samples are waiting to be shipped.
