Electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs)

eTMFs are more prevalent and provide significant benefits over passive, paper based TMFs, enabling integration with business processes and other clinical systems. However, electronic records present new challenges and new regulatory obligations for sponsors and investigators.

Preservica enables your eTMF archive to actively provide information at your fingertips whenever questions may arise, managing information at document and submission level, keeping you in control of your compliance and business requirements.

Challenges for sponsors and investigators


Long-term accuracy and security

Ensuring accuracy, legibility and security of clinical trials information for 25+ years requires more than most basic archiving solutions, which only protect against raw data loss and not the changing availability of technology over time.


Readily accessible content

Electronic records must always be readily available for inspection but archiving without advanced search or the ability to retrieve individual files can increase your time, costs and capacity to meet your compliance obligations.


Preserving dynamic information

Dynamic files — such as spreadsheets — provide automated processing but converting to static or new dynamic formats at the point of archiving, may restrict your ability to reconstruct trial activities or guarantee future software availability.


Proof of standards compliance

The use of eTMFs and electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) submissions utilise common standards and formats for simplicity but converting information is only possible when the original’s data integrity is retained with a full audit history.

Everything you need to safeguard, future-proof and access digital content over decades

We ensure your data is always readable, searchable and accessible, with full audit trails and security. Preservica enables you to take advantage of an operationally active archive, using established digital preservation capabilities to keep, update and view your information on demand.
