Investigational Supplies Group and the HealthcareTechnology Accelerator Facility (HTAF)

ISG as part of HTAF provides Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) and other clinical agents in support of UoE and NHS Lothian clinical and non-clinical trials.
Holding the necessary authorisations from the MHRA, the service aims to meet the needs of investigators and the research community within UoE and NHS Lothian through the provision of in-house, GMP compliant capabilities and facilities for the re-labelling and packaging of Investigational and Non-Investigational Medicinal Products and providing advice on the sourcing and costing for proposals. Alongside ISG is an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient laboratory capable of supplying APIs, stability and analytical packages for early stage clinical studies. Further investment is on-going to provide investigators and researchers with a sterile liquid manufacture service to extend the resources we can offer.
