A number of high-profile drug failures and escalating costs have led to increased scrutiny of the pharmaceutical industry in recent years. While drug manufacturing has always faced intense regulation, the push for quality and efficiency is moving upstream. Driven by PAT, CAPA and other initiatives, companies are striving to build greater quality into drug discovery and development processes.

Liquid handling devices are among the most frequently-used instruments in pharmaceutical laboratories and play an important role in data accuracy. For these reasons, device verification and calibration are essential cornerstones of laboratory quality assurance programs. However, liquid handling technology is advancing rapidly, becoming increasingly automated and adapted for the handling of smaller volumes. This is producing several effects. Firstly, regulations are not keeping pace with new technology, leading to a lack of relevant calibration standards or guidelines. In addition, laboratories need to update their calibration procedures to measure and document micro- and nanolitre volumes quickly and accurately.

The Process of Informed Consent (written by ACRP)
