“My job is to get you the right answer to your regulatory questions and to give you the most up-to-date, advice, training, and resources. I specialize in guiding companies and labs that are new to GLPs and are ready to take the first steps toward building a respected quality program. GLP training, good documentation, and proper chain-of-custody methods, enhance the operations of new or established testing sites. Acorn GLP Consulting provides guidance and training in all aspects of GLPs to help scientists and management improve the accuracy and integrity of their data.”
Acorn GLP Consulting provides on-site training to ensure that your organization’s final product, your laboratory results, is in compliance with government regulations. This first step in Quality Assurance is essential for contract and academic labs planning to develop working relationships with established companies in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, or environmental studies. Building a GLP program in startup companies is crucial for continued success and for reaching full business potential.
In addition to helping establish a government-compliant GLP program, Acorn GLP Consulting provides on-site training classes to mature pharmaceutical, chemical and analytical firms in need of a GLP refresher or for newly hired employees. Often, students from academic institutions lack training in all aspects of GLPs. New-hire orientation and training provided by Acorn will save time and help these employees impact their projects quickly and professionally.
