What is A-TKO™?
The Ancillare Turn-Key Operation — or A-TKO™ — is a completely managed Clinical Trial Ancillary Supply Chain (CTASC™). The model helps Sponsors and research companies strengthen their clinical supply chains through access to robust ancillary supply, equipment, medical device, and drug supply management options for Phase I-IV global clinical trials, through a collaborative partnership.

The A-TKO™ CTASC Sequence
The Optimal Combination of Expertise & Technology, Offered Only by Ancillare
Unlike click-and-order systems or companies offering ancillary supplies for clinical trials as an ‘add-on’, A-TKO™ gives Sponsors complete control over their ancillary supply and equipment programs, and uses proprietary technologies to work alongside their Clinical Trial Management Systems. Optimal results are realized when both Stages are implemented across one study or at an enterprise level.
