Method transfer
The FDA has released an official guide on how to conduct and document method transfer. If you are transferring a validated method between laboratories and sites, assays will need be maintained and re-validated to ensure the same reliable results in the receiving laboratory.  The receiving laboratory also must provide documented evidence, or an AMT (Analytical Method Transfer), that the assay performs to standard. The BioReliance team can help you through the most likely failures during method transfer and provide custom protocols to fit your needs.
