CAD Kit Design

By adding custom kit design capabilities in-house, we can provide rapid prototyping of custom packaging designs specifically suited to a clinical trial.

We can also use our internal capability to produce short runs of cartons and inserts in house. All of this results in better designs and significantly shorter lead times to patient-in kit shipments.

President / Sherpa Clinical Packaging

Sherpa’s flexibility in scheduling our project when our drug delivery date kept changing was crucial to helping us initiate our expanded access clinical program on-time. Their project manager’s attentiveness gave us high confidence in Sherpa’s work, and we will definitely be contacting Sherpa with additional needs in the future.

Who you work with makes a big difference. Sherpa was flexible, easy to work with and incredibly responsive. The issues that came up were handled quickly. It was a nice collaborative effort.

When we started looking for a partner for the kitting and clinical distribution of our Phase 3 drug, we were looking for an agile company capable of responding quickly to our constantly changing requirements. Sherpa have been the perfect partner for us. Their expertise in logistics coupled with exceptional project management have allowed us to keep our clinical program on the aggressive track a Breakthrough therapy requires.

Ancillary supplies were rapidly brought into Sherpa. I’m not sure other vendors could have done that so quickly and maintained quality.

Sherpa was able to help us complete one Phase 2 and are currently doing an amazing job on our second Phase 2 study. Their expertise in project management, logistics and regulatory guidelines have been invaluable to our success in clinical trials.

Omar Flores
Director of Clinical Research & Finance / NuSirt Biopharma

Sherpa has been so effective at managing our packaging and labeling requirements for Phase 1 and 2 clinical trials, we think of them as an extension of our company. We are moving into Phase 3 and have no question they will meet our needs there as well.


Sherpa has provided our virtual company with CTM labeling, packaging, distribution and storage for our Phase 3 clinical trials. I have come to rely on their expertise, quality of service and commitment to timelines. All this is possible with the excellent project management capabilities of Lynn, a very reliable and dedicated member of our team.
