Castor for institutes

Castor was born in academia and has been successfully deployed across numerous research institutes across the globe.

Empowered researchers

Castor EDC is the most user-friendly electronic data capture platform in the world. After following a one-hour online video workshop, any researcher can build their own study quickly and easily. Our support staff help your researchers get the most out of the platform’s powerful features. Researchers love using Castor, as demonstrated by our Net Promoter Score of 48 and support ticket satisfaction rating of 90%+.


Benefits for your institute


Be secure and compliant

Ensure institute-wide compliance with the latest laws and regulations including ISO27001, ICH E6 Good Clinical Practice, 21 CFR Part 11, and HIPAA.

Store data securely

Control data privacy

Comply with privacy regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by signing a Data Processing Agreement with us.


Keep track of your studies

Keep track of all running studies through regular reports, so you know exactly what research is being carried out in your institute, how Castor is being used, and by whom.


Reduce costs

An affordable central license allows you to reduce costs associated with self-hosted systems or traditional licenses, while empowering your researchers with all the Castor benefits.

Your own site license

Our site license model enables you to easily and rapidly deploy Castor EDC across your entire research institute. Rather than paying separately for each individual study, each researcher has their own Billing Code, meaning you face no direct costs for each new study. You can proactively engage with your researchers through a customized welcome email and stay in control through monthly usage reports. You ensure that your entire institute has access to a secure, compliant solution and never pay for more than what you use.



EHR/EMR – save time and reduce copying errors by integrating with your EHR/EMR system through our HL7 FHIR link with proprietary data selection interface. Data warehouse: After study completion, archive all study data in your datawarehouse for future analysis. API: Connect your own applications, such as trial management software, lab systems and logistical support tools to Castor using our API.

One of the many advantages of Castor is that they, as a company, are very innovative. Innovation is in their DNA, and this is a very good match with the dynamic world of medical research where we continually think of new functionalities and how to upgrade our surrounding ICT landscape. Castor EDC is a really good partner to develop with.

Researchers can do fantastic things with Castor EDC! Based on their study protocol they can easily build and change their study structure. One particular researcher was so creative that he incorporated a large part of the protocol in the study structure.

What I like about Castor is that I can create a user-friendly database that will also create a user-friendly output, i.e. that I can already prepare the data as much as possible to make data analysis easier.
