NORTHWOOD, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 8, 2012-- NAMSA, a leading medical device research organization, recently announced the opening of its newest office near Frankfurt, Germany. Staff with regulatory and quality expertise, clinical managers, and local monitors provide ideal support for European clinical trials as well as European device makers seeking US approvals.
"US companies can have confidence that the high quality support they've valued in NAMSA's US clinical and consulting operations are now available in Europe, ensuring the same responsiveness and thoroughness on both sides of 'the pond,'" said Elizabeth Kempen, COO of NAMSA's Clinical Research and Consulting groups. European market approval has emerged as a preferred pathway for medical device manufacturers primarily due to more efficient approval processes.
