Harmonization of procedures across global laboratories:

Methods: Training:
  • All methods are developed at our Genomics Center of Excellence in RTP by our Translational R/D team and subject matter experts
  • Following development, methods are validated in place by subject matter experts at each global site, as necessary
  • Subject Matter Experts travel to each global site to train local staff to ensure consistency of key techniques and working knowledge of complex methods
Documentation, Equipment, Procedures: Assay Development & Validation:
  • Documentation goes through standard review and approval processes, with release dates set to allow for all global sites to review
  • Key equipment is kept consistent at global sites (i.e. Illumina Novaseq at each facility) to allow for method precision, with automation instruments also running identical programs
  • Procedures are also kept consistent across sites, to allow for global studies to be run with the same methods, regardless of testing location
  • Assays are validated at each site
  • Any adjustments or redevelopments to assays will be done prior to release globally and ensuring that changes are able to be made applicable at all sites
  • New equipment is deployed as needed and qualified for use prior to method release
  • We are able to facilitate tech transfer based on needs of our clients

Global Project Management

Each trial is assigned a global project manager for client alignment. Project managers serve as the single point of contact for the client and communication liaison for all stakeholders and contributors and as a link to Q2 Solutions subject matter experts.
  • We are committed to the establishment and nurturing of client relationships by forming account teams comprised of Business Development Representatives and Project Management Professionals.
  • The team is comprised of individuals with a breadth of industry experience coming from genomics, quality, pharmaceutical development and discovery, and healthcare.
  • Project Managers are either PMP certified or working towards the certification through continuing education.
  • Q2 Solutions has continued to invest in project management and we have experienced 1000% growth during the last 4 years alone.
