4-Hour Virtual Seminar on Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) vs GMPs – Comparison and Contrasts

 RECORDED
  4 Hours

According to the FDA, CFR part 58, good laboratory practices (GLPs) are a set of guidelines for conducting nonclinical laboratory studies that support or are intended to support applications for research or marketing permits for products such as food and color additives, human and animal drugs, medical devices for human use, biological products and electronic products that are regulated by the FDA.

As per the FDA, GLPS are for non-clinical laboratory studies in which test articles are studied in test system under laboratory conditions to determine their safety. This does not include studies utilizing human subjects, or clinical studies, or field trials on animals. GLPs are not enforceable by law. They do not include the manufacturing of the product. However, it is important to be able to compare and contrast GLPs with GMPs and understand their requirements.
