Once your company has selected a contract laboratory or contract research organization to perform its research, studies, experimentation, assays, examinations, certifications, analysis, developments, or testing, effective management and continuous evaluation of the laboratory are needed. Effective management is especially important if your company uses multiple contract laboratories or is having multiple tests performed.

If possible, maintain one single point of contact between your company and the contract laboratory or contract research organization. This should be clearly defined and communicated to the contract laboratories. This ensures proper communication, transmission, and distribution of materials such as contract changes, emergencies, laboratory test result discrepancies or failures, laboratory investigations, and laboratory testing results.

If your company uses multiple contract laboratories or has many different products or tests performed, consider using laboratory databases, spreadsheets, or software to manage and track the status, turnaround time, and results of samples and testing.
