Key Products

Simcyp PBPK Simulator

The Simcyp Simulator is the pharmaceutical industry’s most sophisticated physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK) platform for determining first-in-human dosing, optimizing clinical study design, evaluating new drug formulations, setting the dose in untested populations, performing virtual bioequivalence analyses, and predicting drug-drug interactions (DDIs). Simcyp is being applied to small molecules, biologics, ADCs, generics, and new modality drugs.

Phoenix WinNonlin

PK/PD and non-compartmental analyses can be time consuming, requiring detailed attention to every step from data preparation to report generation. Phoenix WinNonlin™’s integrated tools for data processing, graphing & charting, report generation, and compliance create an efficient, all-in-one collaboration workbench.

GlobalSubmit™ eCTD Software

Whether you are experienced or new to the regulatory submission process, the risk of rejection of your electronic common technical document (eCTD) submissions cannot be taken lightly, especially given the changing and growing complexity of the regulatory environment. Not to mention, differences in eCTD submission criteria per region, managing the entire documentation lifecycle, and meeting your organization’s goals on expediting your release to market.

Phoenix™ Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) Platform

It is the same platform used by the US FDA and Japan’s PMDA to review a submission’s data quality, CDISC compliance, and fitness for use.

Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) Software

QSP has enormous potential to improve biopharmaceutical R&D and inform decision-making across the drug development process. QSP combines computational modeling and experimental data to examine the relationships between a drug, the biological system, and the disease process. With the ability to leverage vast amounts of biological and pharmacological data, QSP enables the understanding of disease pathophysiology, to identify and test therapeutic strategies in virtual trials with virtual patients.

D360 Scientific Informatics Platform

D360™ is the industry-leading scientific data informatics platform used globally by over 6,000 discovery research scientists in small molecule and biologics discovery and pre-clinical safety. It delivers self-service data access and an integrated analysis and visualization solution.

The BaseCase™ Platform

Developing interactive and easy-to-use stakeholder engagement content for market access, medical affairs, and sales field teams is a time-consuming, expensive, and often decentralized process. BaseCase is a “no-code” platform that enables you to visualize large complex datasets and economic models, clearly demonstrating the value of your products to key decision-makers.

GlobalSubmit™ eCTD Software

With Certara’s GlobalSubmit™ eCTD submissions management software, you’ll provide your regulatory team the tools they need to efficiently publish, validate, and review your eCTD submissions. This means you can eliminate risk and avoid unnecessary steps with a simplified eCTD submission process that supports your regulatory team as they race to meet deadlines and deliver treatments to patients.
