Our core business is the chemical synthesis of peptides and the custom production of polyclonal antibodies.

Peptides and antibodies are different forms of proteins. As proteins control every process essential for life, discovering more about how they work and how they help the body fight disease and infection, is crucial for furthering medical research, drug development and health care provision.

All CRB’s products are used purely for medical research purposes — primarily drug discovery and disease research — either by commercial organisations or academic institutes. We do not sell them to be used directly on patients.

Alongside this custom-production, we also ‘partner’ small, highly specialised biochemical businesses to help them promote their services and gain wider exposure.

Clinical Network Services United Kingdom

Clinical Network Services (CNS) is an integrated service group focused on product development headquartered in Australia with offices in New Zealand, the UK and the USA.

CNS creates value for small-medium sized biotechnology companies by progressing early stage products through phase 1 & 2 clinical trials or the marketplace sooner.

CNS offers a unique service where it integrates BioDesk, an intelligent global product development and regulatory affairs consultancy, with our committed, highly experienced Australian/New Zealand clinical operations and biometrics team.

BioDesk’s expert consultants offer CMC/manufacturing, toxicology, clinical and regulatory affairs strategic advice and guide products efficiently through critical post-discovery development and into the clinic for the first time.

With over 15 years’ experience on more than 300 projects, CNS is one of the most experienced providers within the local market and a partner of choice for biotech companies.

CNS’s small-medium size is considered a big advantage when relating to similar sized clients, though CNS takes a global development/regulatory approach to ensure value is strategically added at every stage of the product development life cycle.
