“Industry can and should take responsibility and ownership to define good bioanalytical quality in earlier stages of development, we should use the momentum and our experience to help define Bioanalysis for future generations.”
Bioanalysts around the world share one common goal: to generate high-quality data for valid scientific decision making. For this, and as part of their scientific responsibility, they have always taken initiatives to ensure that quality and science can go hand-in-hand. Including method-development practices; performing some kind of validation or qualification in front of sample analysis; inclusion of independent quality control samples; or, calibration curves mimicking the real samples as closely as possible during study sample analysis, are just a few examples of practices that originate from day-to-day laboratory practices rather than from regulatory request.
