Ocular Studies

Sinclair Research is proud to have assembled an exceptional combination of experience and resources for pre-clinical in-vivo evaluation of ocular therapeutics. We conduct GLP and non-GLP ophthalmic studies ranging from simple to complex design in a variety of animal models for safety, efficacy, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic (DMPK), and ocular biodistribution evaluations. Whether supporting the development of ophthalmic drugs, devices, or drug-eluting devices, Sinclair is well-equipped to provide clients with required essentials, ranging from technology and facilities to board-certified consultants and ocular histopathology reports, to execute specialized, high-quality studies.
