Mumbai, India Oct 14, 2009 - SIRO Clinpharm a global Contract Research
Organization (CRO) with its base in India, US, Europe and Israel today announced expansion of its Clinical Trials

"We opened our clinical trials supplies warehouse in 2003 with a modest area of 1800 sq. ft.," said Jayanti
Vaidyanath, Vice President, Administration, Legal & Clinical Trials Supplies Management. "Those days we were one
of the few CROs based out of India to have such a facility. Now, with expanded facility, we have a bigger area of
6200 sq. ft. with room for further expansion. We currently have two walk in cold rooms at 2-8 degree storage,
ambient storage at 15-25 degrees and storages for temperature ranges between -20 and -70 degrees. We have also
significantly strengthened our inventory management process using the recently implemented Oracle Siebel CTMS
tool" she added.
"The facility expansion will enable us to handle many more orders thus increasing our ability to serve wider
client base', said Dr. Ajit Nair, President, India Operations. "Very recently we have partnered with a global
leader in logistics to support them in Clinical Trials Supplies management in India. This broadens our scope by
making us a part of their global storage and distribution network and increases the platform to work on for our
international pharma and biotech clients", he added.
