Expanded GXP compliance increases Concept's breadth of services

Successful MHRA inspection at Dundee site confirms GLP accreditation for in vitro safety studies and bioanalysis.

Concept Life Sciences has completed the first phase of its GXP compliance plan, achieving GLP (good laboratory practice) accreditation of its Dundee site for in vitro safety studies and bioanalysis.

Expanded GXP compliance increases Concept's breadth of services

The successful MHRA inspection was done at Concept’s Dundee site in December 2017, confirming GLP accreditation for in vitro safety studies and bioanalysis. The accreditation increases the breadth of services the company is able to offer to customers requiring regulatory studies, and provides assurance of data integrity and compliance with international standards, ensuring acceptance of the data by global regulatory bodies.

The accreditation forms part of a phased plan over H1 2018 to expand GXP compliance (including GLP and GMP) at the company’s facilities across the UK, to expand services to manufacture of API material, and to further support development of compounds from the discovery stage to full IND packages.

John Handley, Chief Operating Officer, Concept Life Sciences, said: “Concept Life Sciences has a strategy in place to expand GXP compliance across multiple sites, as part of our drive to expand the services we offer to our clients. We are delighted that the Dundee site has achieved GLP certification, and look forward to announcing the next stage in the growth of the company.”

GLP refers to a quality system of management controls to ensure uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality and integrity in non-clinical laboratory studies and gives confidence in the safety assessment of a compound. GLP applies to the pharmaceutical industry and the required non-clinical animal testing that must be performed prior to approval of new drug products, and to many other non-pharmaceutical agents such as colour additives, food additives, food contamination limits, food packaging, and medical devices.
