PPD MET OR EXCEEDED DATA QUALITY EXPECTATIONS FOR 97% OF PPD’S USERS1

DATA THAT ENABLES BETTER
AND FASTER DECISIONS

Nearly 70% of the data for a new drug application (NDA) comes from the laboratory. Thorough data creates a clear swift pathway to regulatory approval that is paved with actionable insights. PPD Laboratory services exceeded data quality expectations for 97% of users.1

We support customers’ programs where they need us, and when they need and with four wholly owned laboratories in the U.S., Europe, Singapore, and China, which maintain a robust roster of accreditations.

Our global laboratory assay standardization survey (GLASS) drives harmonization and efficiency efforts across all study locations

GLASS promotes a consistent approach to auditing, deviation management and standard operating procedures. It includes standardization processes, instrumentation, calibrators and standard operating procedures (SOPs). It also utilizes recurring analysis of check samples to ensure results will be the same regardless of which location performs the testing.

The impacts of the Preclarus central lab database are maximized through GLASS. Results are transmitted directly into the database from our labs without a normalization/standardization step. This provides data to study sites and project teams in real time.
