Effectively manage all local laboratory data
Local laboratories are labs commonly on-site or close to the investigator site, and they are often utilized in a clinical trial when data is needed immediately for treatment or randomization.
When a clinical trial requires local or point-of-care laboratory testing, managing the resulting data can be a significant burden to a sponsor and the investigator sites. There are several factors driving the need for local labs: laboratory reports vary greatly across the globe; remote laboratories and investigator sites may not have IT support; and point of care testing can involve remote testing or satellite lab testing at or near a patient. The number of local labs needed will vary by study: for instance, it is estimated that a late phase study might utilize >500 local laboratories.
Some lab data challenges include multiple vendor usage, additional site burden and consistency issues. Therefore, managing local labs can require extensive Clinical Trial Management and sponsor oversight.
