The 2-day Implementation of ‘Good Laboratory Practice’ course promoted by BiologiQ was extremely useful to our company. Last May, we started to run an in-house microbiology laboratory. Prior to that, the company had a lot of analytical chemistry being done in-house, which then continued to be done with the microbiology. Although the results produced by the lab were satisfactory, the demand for results increased, and with that, the data, protocols and routines needed to be managed and retrieved. We needed to control this information and routines in a more systematic way. From our first contact with Douglas and Karine we got good explanations about how the GLP training would help us to achieve this aim.
Our training took place in October 2014. Our expectations were all met during the course which was well-structure and comprehensive. We received, for example, definitions of both GLP and ISO 17025:2005 and also recommendations to which category our lab fitted better. We were able to bring doubts in how to improve/correct our current management system. We discussed how to keep control of orders and reagents, equipment, and how to organise a myriad of relevant documentation, and also how to lead technical staff, etc. The knowledge of GLP also helped us to improve our feedback to our managers as regards the need of certain approaches needed in the laboratory.
Douglas offered us a customised and interactive training, which we appreciated.
I would certainly recommend it to laboratory/scientific leads in industry working to generate reliable results.
