April 11, 2022. Ennov, the provider of the only unified compliance platform for Life Sciences – a highly configurable software architecture that provides a consistent user experience and eliminates data silos –, has today announced the acquisition of MACRO, a world-class and trusted trial resource provider of advanced EDC (Electronic Data Capture) software for clinical research from Elsevier.
MACRO's easy-to-use system allows users to quickly input, monitor and run reports on subject data to collect accurate and reliable data for analysis. With its powerful capabilities to meet internationally recognized ethical and scientific quality requirements for the design, conduct, registration and reporting of clinical trials involving human subjects, MACRO has become the benchmark solution for clinical research institutions in the UK. MACRO also serves world-class research institutions in Austria, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
This acquisition makes Ennov the leading provider in clinical trial and compliance solutions in the European region. More specifically, MACRO's customers include many cancer research institutes in the UK as well as in France, underlining Ennov's leading position. In total, more than 20 cancer research institutions worldwide will conduct their studies on one of Ennov's solutions. 9 out of these 20 institutions were ranked among the top 100 cancer hospitals in the world by Newsweek magazine's World's Best Hospitals 2021.
