GLR QA’s Leadership for Medical Devices

At GLR laboratories, the Quality Assurance Unit is uniquely positioned to provide customized quality assurance service to clients’ projects, as per the specific regulatory requirement for the product’s testing.

A QA Auditor is specially assigned to each one of the customer’s unique products, for close monitoring and quality assurance auditing, throughout the particular product’s testing life-cycle at GLR Labs, from the time of project confirmation and product (test item) receipt, through to the study plan preparation, conduct of studies, report compilation, archival and report delivery to customer.

The assigned QA auditor follows closely, the customer’s exact requirement and expectation in the specific product’s (test item’s) handling, testing and report presentation, while assuring that all prescribed quality compliances are met as per applicable regulatory rules and guidelines, through a comprehensive monitoring and auditing programme.
