Course Description

Diagnostic studies vary greatly from standard pharma and device studies, and the documents generated for these studies differ accordingly. This web seminar presents the basic tools required to generate protocols for sample collection, accuracy, and reproducibility studies. Participants will learn the elements of each of these protocols, how they differ from the standard pharma protocols, the guidances to follow for reference, and the regulatory environment surrounding sample collection and informed consents for de-linked samples.
