Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) QA support

The test facility should have a documented Quality Assurance Programme to assure that studies performed are in compliance with these Principles of Good Laboratory Practice.

OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practice

TMQA has worked with many GLP laboratories over the years providing independent, third-party audits on behalf of sponsors who have contracted out their GLP studies.

We also provide a raft of valuable GLP services to smaller companies, for example: help developing and implementing GLP, providing top-up audit support when their own resource is busy or even running their entire QA programme. All of which means that they only have to pay for the QA services they need, when required.

With established expertise in both GLP and GCP, TMQA is also excellently placed to provide Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) support to Clinical Laboratories.
