The quality management system was set up in accordance with the Canadian, US and European Good Manufacturing Practice/GLP regulations and guidelines.
The quality assurance system relies on the use of documented processes of activities related to the handling, storage and analyses of biological samples and scientific data. Quality assurance controls the documentation, change control, deviations, incidents, investigations, and corrective and preventative action, validation, audits and training of personnel.
Quality checks cover all of the verification and analytical controls built in and around the various analytical activities from data generation, to handling and reporting.
The Pharmacogenomics Centre’s analytical equipment, instruments and laboratory support systems are managed according to current Good Manufacturing Practice/GLP practices for instrument calibration and preventive and emergency maintenance.
