Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) guidelines describe the application of those Good Laboratory Practice principles that are relevant to the analyses of samples from clinical trials while ensuring the purpose and objectives of the Good Clinical Practice principles are maintained. In so doing, the reliability, quality, consistency and integrity of data generated by clinical trial laboratories can be assured, which is crucial to the outcome of any clinical trial. Introduction to Good Clinical Laboratory Practice is a stand-alone short course for all those wanting to gain an understanding of GCLP and its application in laboratories. This peer-reviewed course provides an introduction to GCLP, summarizes the principles of GCLP and offers an overview of the implementation of GCLP within a clinical trial.

Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • identify how GCLP compliance benefits laboratories
  • know the principles of GCLP and understand the requirements of each principle
  • identify how GCLP is implemented across the whole clinical trial process 
  • understand how GCLP guidelines could be interpreted and implemented in your laboratory
