The following is an excerpt on what she would be covering during the session:
Challenges on Sample Quality
- The prerequisite of Quality Laboratory Data
- Study Design and Planning
- Sample Integrity Ladder
Central Laboratories face challenges in producing quality data for clinical studies due to increasing complexity, larger and more remote geographical study sites, and more stringent regulatory and compliance requirements – all while still meeting study timelines and budget constraints. The key prerequisite to producing quality laboratory data is high caliber sample handling and management. In this session, the presenter will discuss the significant elements involved in sample management, from study design and planning, sample collection and compliance, and transportation and logistics to receipt and storage. Common problems will also be reviewed. Audience members will leave understanding the various sample management stages in clinical trials. The session concludes with strategies and guidelines for achieving high sample quality and preserving specimen integrity from a central laboratory's perspective.
