GCP quality assurance and regulatory compliance for pharmaceutical research
BioResearch Monitors is dedicated to ensuring data quality and regulatory compliance in all phases of pharmaceutical research. The directors of BioResearch Monitors have been managing and conducting quality assurance operations since the inception of the FDA’s Bioresearch Monitoring Program. Our quality assurance associates are all highly qualified, with advanced degrees and significant, relevant industry and/or medical experience.
BioResearch Monitors prides itself on being flexible to meet the unexpected needs of its clients, and will do everything possible to meet tight project timelines and accommodate unplanned / unexpected ‘For Cause’ audits that need to be performed as soon as possible. BioResearch Monitors has conducted audits in many developing countries and is experienced in dealing with different cultures.
Clinical quality assurance audits
Clinical quality assurance audits, performed to ensure that scientific and ethical standards are met in the conduct of clinical trials, are conducted using proprietary computerized audit tools, customized to each project, so that GCP audit findings can be efficiently and consistently collected, analyzed and reported.
This focused systems-oriented approach to quality assurance is designed to assess and validate study conduct and documentation to ensure regulatory compliance and conformance to protocol, SOP and contractual requirements. Our methodology fully evaluates the activities and documentation underlying study data integrity and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) ethical and regulatory requirements.
To maintain independence and objectivity in performing quality assurance evaluations, BioResearch Monitors does not conduct or manage clinical trials, thereby providing our clients with unbiased opinions, free from any conflicts of interest, when sensitive investigations of internal systems or evaluations of other clinical service providers are needed.
