Data Integrity Services from MTS Ltd

Data Integrity Services from Mourne Training Services Ltd
In recent years data integrity has become a 'buzz' term in the pharmaceutical industry due to the regularity of problems being given the label during regulatory inspections. Mourne Training Services Ltd (MTS) has significant expertise in this area since integrity of data is the primary aim of all the services we offer.

MTS offers specific Training, Auditing and Consulting services relating to data integrity.

Courses in data integrity may be required to achieve a number of different outcomes such as:
  • Demonstrate commitment to data integrity in the laboratory;
  • Raise awareness for all staff to understand the issues surrounding laboratory data integrity and how it affects them;
  • Strengthen laboratory quality management systems to improve data integrity and remove falsification potential
MTS has worked with customers to design training that met these outcomes, which was customised to their unique requirements in terms of content and timings. We can do the same for you. We have designed 3 x 1 day courses that we offer as open-enrolment training which also provide a good starting point for selecting content in a bespoke course intended for in-house use.
The courses are:

1: Introduction to Laboratory Data Integrity; cGMP in the Pharma Lab
Introduces the fundamental concepts of laboratory data integrity in the context of working within a quality management system and as such this course also acts as an introduction/refresher to laboratory cGMP.

2: Applying Data Integrity in the Laboratory; Minimising Analytical Error
Deals with the effects of analytical errors on laboratory data integrity. This involves building an understanding of the nature and sources of analytical errors so that their effects can be minimised during testing, leading to high standards of data integrity and reduced numbers of OOS/OOE results due to laboratory errors.

3: How to Improve Data Integrity in the Pharma Lab
Focusses on improving laboratory data integrity and associated quality management systems by review of laboratory processes to identify data integrity risk, and implementation of appropriate solutions, paying particular attention to deficiencies that are commonly cited by regulatory authorities.

Full course descriptions are available on the MTS website.
