In addition to offering a world-leading patient recruitment service, we are also taking on more and more studies as a digital CRO. We recently worked with Embody on a clinical study designed to build trust in their brand.
Embody presented us with a unique challenge: they had created the first retinol gummy on the market, and without any clinical trials to support the true impact of their product, their rapidly growing business was seeking scientific validation.
With our help, Embody was able to launch their clinical trial in only a few weeks, and they achieved clinically validated claims in just four months. Citruslabs enable them to reduce the cost of their clinical trial by over 1,000%. We did this by offering our automated, software-driven approach which boosted their ROI significantly.
We also kept their research on budget by reducing their initial study time from an expected 10 months to just 4 months. In the end, we saved them a 6 figure total by running their clinical trial.
We were able to enroll and onboard all of Embody’s study participants within one week -- beating their estimated timeline. What’s more, we also aided in keeping their retention rates high through continued communication and content delivery, including automatic drip campaigns. The industry average dropout rate is around 33% -- and for Embody, the drop out rate was only 5%.
Jennifer, the CEO of Embody shared “Citruslabs is a great partner! We have an amazing account manager and lots of contact with the study team. All in all, Citruslabs made the process of running a clinical trial simple and easy and we are already looking forward to our next study with them.”

In addition to keeping you up to date on all things clinical trials, we also act as a digital CRO with a specific focus on patient recruitment and retention. We believe that patient recruitment and study startup (especially study design and study material) are heavily intertwined. After all, study design can make or break clinical trials, and the patient-perspective should be considered when designing studies to ensure that patient targets are met not only on time, but also on budget.
For Citruslabs, patient recruitment starts with study design and ends with trial completion. We recruit patients through our network of health apps, which enables you to connect with thousands of patients in real time. The best part: these patients are already educated and prepared for the clinical trial process.
