APS’ Continued Commitment to quality

APS Receives FDA Clean Bill of Health

APS is committed to quality. In March 2014, APS was inspected by the FDA for compliance to 21 CFR Part 58, FDA Good Laboratory Practice. During this multi-day inspection, the FDA thoroughly reviewed APS’ quality systems. The outcome of this audit demonstrated that APS was in full compliance with no deficiencies being identified.

APS strives to provide exceptional preclinical research services. We bring together a first rate facility, state of the art medical diagnostic imaging, unparalleled technical expertise and a strong quality and compliance mindset. We understand that often these services directly impact the quality and contents of our customer’s regulatory strategies and submissions. APS conducts well designed, well documented studies and remains on the leading edge of preclinical research by delivering high quality studies. Our recent interactions with FDA validate our stance that APS continues to be a leader in field of medical device preclinical testing and is able to deliver GLP compliant studies for even the most challenging programs.
