Alturas Analytics' Quality Assurance Unit (QAU) goal is to provide assurance that non-clinical and clinical study activities are conducted in compliance with procedures and applicable regulations. The QAU works with scientific staff and management to continually improve Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and quality systems. The QAU has their own set of SOPs to independently assure that defined requirements for the processes have been followed and that inspections occur on a regular basis including:
- Facility Inspections (including process audits)
- In Process Inspections
- Data Inspections
- Report Inspections
The QAU staff are members of the Society of Quality Assurance. They receive training and stay current with industry regulations, standards, and guidance documents by regularly attending national or regional meetings, workshops and webinars sponsored by SQA and other organizations.
The entire staff at Alturas Analytics, Inc. is required to take part in various training activities as new employes and as part of an on-going professional development training program. Some specialized training areas include annual regulatory training, safety training, business continuity plan and disaster recovery training.
