Directory of randomisation software and services
This is a directory of randomisation software and services for clinical trials,
including both simple do-it-yourself software and 24 hour telephone
randomisation services. It is intended to help people planning and seeking
funding for clinical trials.
If you know of other software or services which should be included, please
email Martin Bland
email@example.com and they will be added to the directory. If your
service is listed here and you do not want it to be, please email Martin Bland
and you will
This directory is partial. Exclusion from it does not imply that the service
is inferior in any way, just tell us who you are and we will include you.
Inclusion in it does not imply that the service has been approved by us. We
take responsibility only for getting the links right.
These provide trial support services including telephone randomisation. These
are not free. You must discuss your trial with the centre and agree their
involvement before applying for your grant. These services are not cheap. 10
pounds per patient randomised is typical. They also provide many other
collaborative services for trials. Some of these organisations have their
origins in academic research, others are purely commercial.
Telephone randomisation may be provided during normal working hours or 24 hours
per day. You should check what service you need and what the service provider
offers. You should also check what out-of-hours procedure they provide. This
might be a voice activated computer, a person sitting by the phone, or a phone
directed to someone doing something else.
