These reviews will cover everything that is related to the sample analysis performed by the technicians: from reagents to calculations and from assays/method handling to QC data. During the review all the errors that have been flagged need to be processed in order to determine if the results are valid or not. This is done according to internal written procedures. Important is to be aware of the strict and compliant environment that the team operates in. This is a crucial step in the process and does not allow for any interpretations. Following the procedures and being compliant with GCLP is key.
