Quality Leadership and Excellence by Design
At Modern Laboratories, our mission is to provide trusted medicines that help people lead healthier lives. Our philosophy and intent are to create and maintain world-class business practices to ensure that our products are safe, effective and compliant with all internationally defined good practices. Our passion for quality goes beyond business and statutory requirements. We have only one focus – Patients.
Our commitment to implementing a robust, global quality management system is based upon our desire to sustain a culture of operational excellence, meeting and exceeding the expectations of all stakeholders, including patients, customers and Government regulators.
We are committed to fulfilling the spirit and intent of our Global Quality Philosophy at all locations where we conduct regulated research, development, manufacture, testing and/or distribution of pharmaceutical products. Our objective is sustained compliance with internationally defined good practices, collectively known as GxP. This includes Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP), Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GPVP).
Our commitment to GxP regulatory excellence supports our objective of providing safe and efficacious pharmaceutical products to our customers worldwide. Our alignment with these standards provides the assurance that patient safety is protected and that the data provided to the regulators is of the highest accuracy, integrity and quality.
