DNAnexus GxP Support Services

As you develop a drug or medical device, you’re focused on making it effective and safe. But to bring it to market, you also need to show regulators that you’ve met all best practice standards, at every stage. Documenting this can be difficult and time consuming. Even small mistakes can cause regulators to flag your application.

DNAnexus GxP Support ensures that your bioinformatics work is compliant with all best practice standards. Demonstrate to regulators that you’re observing the full range of GxP guidelines — from documentation, to testing environments, to Quality Management Systems, and auditability. And with DNAnexus GxP Support, you also get help with training, system setup and configuration, and both internal and external audits. We ensure that your drug or device development work complies with best practice standards, at every stage.
