Equipment & Facilities

Barwon Health has diverse clinical trial teams located throughout the organisation. Some are co-located within their speciality areas and other have dedicated clinical trial space which include consulting rooms, waiting areas and sample processing space.

The diversity of the clinical trial teams means we have access to a wide range of standard equipment required for the conduct of trials. Equipment is maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and calibrated and safety checked via the Barwon Health Biomedical Engineering Department. A high-level overview of available equipment is listed below.

If your study requires specialist equipment, you may need to provide this for us to conduct the trial. Please list any equipment you provide in the Clinical Trial Research Agreement (CTRA).
