Quality Assurance

The foundation to any successful study is the production of high quality data. Our Core Lab provides a comprehensive Quality Control system from data submission to data transmission. All data that is transmitted to the Core Lab is checked for completeness and quality by our highly trained and knowledgeable staff. Feedback to the site is provided based on the study specific requirements and guidelines. This ensures that study sites adhere to their stated goals and receive constructive assessments on acquired data to assist in surpassing these standards. Furthermore, once all data has been checked for quality upon transmission to the Core Lab, all quantified and processed data that is transmitted from the Core Lab is thoroughly inspected by our modality-specific experts and Core Lab Director.This additional level of scrutiny, prior to data transmission, ensures that our collaborators receive quantified data of the best possible quality.
