How to Effectively  Build a GLP Laboratory

Step-by-step from design to compliant and cost-effective implementation

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

Being able to perform GLP studies expands a laboratory's business opportunities but there are also costs involved.  Performing GLP analysis internally as opposed to outsourcing them to contract laboratories can save time and money, especially for large sample number studies. However, because of regulatory requirements building a GLP laboratory needs to be thoroughly planned, designed and implemented. This holds for planning of organizational and management structure, for facilities and equipment, and for documented staff training. 

Key Questions related to building a GLP laboratory are:

  • Who has to comply with GLP regulations?
  • What are the differences between FDA and international GLP regulations?
  • What are the key differences between a GLP and non-GLP work?
  • What are the incremental costs?
  • What are the key benefits in-house GLP analysis vs. outsourcing?
  • What are the key requirements related to laboratory facilities?
  • What are the management and organizational requirements?
  • Which type of documents should be developed?
  • Do we need any additional people with different qualifications?
  • How should we archive GLP data: paper, microfiche, electronic?
  • We already have ISO 17025, how to upgrade to GLP?
  • We already are GMP certified, how to upgrade to GLP?

How does the audio seminar help:

A good understanding of GLP regulations together with a good strategy for planning, design and implementation not only can keep the costs under control but provides assurance that the lab will pass FDA and other GLP inspections. Answers to the questions above will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, checklists, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and International GLP regulations: 21 CFR Part 58
  • Similarity and difference to ISO 17025 and GMP
  • Documentation requirements: Policy, master plan, SOPs, records
  • Special organizational requirements: study director, QAU, archivist
  • Developing a master plan with step-by-step implementation plan
  • Developing SOPs. type, formats and enforcement
  • GLP studies: preparation, conduct, documentation
  • Hiring and management of the right personnel
  • Assigning tasks and responsibilities:: Management, study director, QA, analysts
  • Designing and/or optimizing the laboratory facilities for GLP Studies
  • Brining new and existing equipment and test methods into GLP compliance
  • Develop a strategy and a protected archive for electronic records
  • Records keeping: format, length of time, archiving and reprocessing
  • Upgrading from existing ISO 17025 accreditation and GMP compliance.
