During his MD training, our founder Derk Arts, identified a major problem in medical research. Due to the unavailability of affordable, easy to use data capture tools, researchers were deviating to non-compliant alternatives that reduce data quality, security, and reusability.
In 2012 Dr. Arts invented Castor which enables researchers to easily capture and integrate high-quality data from any source on one compliant platform. Thousands of medical device, biotech, and academic researchers around the world are now using Castor EDC (Electronic Data Capture), eCRF, ePRO, and eTMF to accelerate their studies.
Castor currently employs more than 50 people that are passionate about transforming medical research across its headquarters in Amsterdam and an office in the United States.
In 2020, Castor joined the global fight against the Coronavirus by offering its EDC system for free for all COVID-19 research projects. Click here to learn more about this initiative.
