GLP Archiving Capabilities
Our archiving capabilities include document storage, indexing, retrieval, delivery, destruction and duplication, as well as the storage of test/control/reference substances/articles, wet specimens, refrigerated and frozen samples; tissues, blocks and slides; radioactive metabolism samples; and electronic media. In addition, we provide comprehensive records management services such as high-speed document scanning/imaging, microfilm/microfiche conversion and backup of electronic data.
QAI’s imaging of research data reports and other documentation meet the requirements for GLP true copies. Request for transfer of materials or copies of documents are not executed without proper authorization from the client.

Our archivists perform daily document inventories, verification, storage and retrieval, as well as database management to meet our clients’ needs.
