Good Clinical Laboratory Practice Courses

What is GCLP?

Good clinical laboratory practice (GCLP) is a GxP guideline for laboratory samples from clinical studies. Good clinical practice (GCP) does not define requirements for laboratories within clinical trials and good laboratory practice (GLP)  focusses on pre-clinical analyses and not on human samples from clinical trials.

Accredited GCLP Course

What is this course about?

TASK Academy offers a one day accredited GCLP course to address the requirements for laboratories within clinical trials when working with human samples. During this course you are introduced to:

  •  The facility standards
  •   Personnel Qualifications
  •   Analytical Plans
  •   Quality Control and Quality Assurance
  •   Equipment
  •   Health and Safety
  •   Standard Operating Procedures and Document Control
  •   Audit Processes
  •   Sample Processing at the site
  •   Maintaining the cold chain
  •   Risk assessment and Corrective / Preventative actions


Who must attend this course?

If you are working / want to work in a laboratory that analyse and handle samples from a clinical trial it is recommended that you attend this course. This course is also highly recommended for staff working / wanting to work at the clinical trial site  – collecting, processing and storing samples of patients at their site as GCP alone does not define these requirements.

Course Dates and Rates 2020 :

TASK Academy hosts this one day accredited GCLP course directly after the one day accredited GCP course to offer the opportunity for people to attend both  to acquire all requirements to be able to start or continue their career in clinical trials.  GCP / GCLP can also be attended as a standalone course.
