FACT Announces ISCT-FACT Quality Boot Camp at the 2019 ISCT North America Meeting – September 12

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 7 :: Monday, July 29th, 2019

Is your lab FACT accredited or looking to comply with FACT standards? Strengthen your quality management programs through this interactive workshop with FACT experts and real world applications.

Focused on issues identified by FACT compliant programs, these sessions will include activities and discussion regarding Document Control, Risk Assessment in the Processing Laboratory, Supply Qualification, and Audit Plans and Writing the Report. Come prepared with your quality program questions and leverage QA experts to apply continuous improvement to your own institution. This boot camp is applicable not only to academic labs but also relevant for commercial operations.

We encourage programs to send multiple personnel to attend the various FACT events on September 12. The ISCT-FACT Quality Boot Camp is essential for all quality and laboratory personnel. The FACT Cellular Therapy Inspection and Accreditation Workshop taking place on the same day, is a must-see for cell processing laboratory personnel, physicians, scientists and principal investigators, administrators and nurses.
