2005 - ACCREDITATION OF LABORATORIES
ACCREDITATION OF LABORATORIES

The Accreditation of Laboratories is vital for USM to ensure its place as a recognized  center for research. Accreditation is required for

-    the validity of research findings.
-    making publications based on findings acceptable for international journals.
-    the prevention of siphoning of funds related to clinical trials  to third countries with certified laboratories.
-    the marketing of our services to Malaysian institutions that are now buying the services from certified laboratories in neighboring nations.

This concept for laboratory accreditation was presented and accepted at the Mesyuarat Exco Naib Cancelor Kampus Kesihatan on 25 June 2005. The Naib Cancelor suggested that laboratories at the main campus are also included in the discussions that will be involved.

A committee headed by Prof. Nor Hayati Othman has been appointed by Pengarah Kampus to spearhead and make this a reality for the campus. The heads of various agencies at the Main Campus have been requested to nominate members to the committee before activities can be formally initiated. A core team is presently brain-storming on strategies to be presented to the main Accreditation Committee and on acceptance will be presented to Jawatankuasa Induk Kualiti Kampus.

Expertise in the field of accreditation is available on site. Several officers from our campus have undergone training by the Department of Standards of Malaysia (DSM) as Technical Assessors for Laboratory Accreditation under ISO 15189 and therefore act as Resource Personnel for the initiative. They are:

  • Prof. Dr. Nor Hayati Othman         - Timb. Dekan PPSP
  • Prof. Madya Dr. Hasnan Jaafar    - Pensyarah Jab. Patologi
  • Prof. Madya Hasenan Nordin       - Pensyarah Jab. Patologi Kimia
  • Prof. Madya Pim Chau Dam         - Pensyarah PPSK
  • Dr. Rosline Hassan                       - Pensyarah Jab. Hematologi
  • En. Chandran Govindasamy        - Ket. Peg. Sains Jab. Patologi Kimia
  • En. Mahadavan Raman Kutty       - Peg. Sains Jab. Hematologi

2006 - ACCREDITATION OF LABORATORIES

ACCREDITATION OF LABORATORIES

THE ROAD TO GLP (GOOD LABORATORY PRACTICE) CERTIFICATION

Prof Asma Ismail has been appointed Chairman of the GLP Committee for the Health Campus. She takes over from Prof. Nor Hayati Othman who set the ball rolling for Laboratory Accreditation at the Campus.

GLP certification brings with it international accreditation of the laboratory facilities and support systems upon which the validity of research findings depend. Among activities conducted to promote awareness regarding the importance of GLP certification were a briefing on GLP and a Seminar on the subject.  

1.  Briefing on GLP and Modular Laboratories : Organized by INFORMM. Conducted by General Manager, Fisher South East Asia,l on 16th October 2006.
    

       Among ideas generated were:

      • The possibility of setting up a laboratory for the calibration of equipment that could be used by all schools and laboratories at the campus. It could also be commercially promoted for use by the private sector.
      • The setting up of modular laboratories for research that are
            i.      Compliant to international requirements                                                            
           
ii.     Set up in a short period of time.                                                           
            
iii.    
More economical than concrete structures.
·         The use of Research University (RU) funding to realize GLP requirements at the Health Campus. 

2.  Seminar on GLP was organized by INFORMM on 23rd November 2006. The response was encouraging. The organizers had to stretch resources to accommodate the sixty participants from all schools that attended.

 Speakers:  

1. Dr. Mary Abraham, Penyelaras Kualiti Kampus Kesihatan   
Topic: The Need for Laoratory Accreditation in Research and Patient Care.

2. Prof Navaratnam, Ketua Projek Antarabangsa, Pusat Penyelidikan Dadah & Ubatan-Ubatan,    USM, Pulau Pinang.                            
Topic: The Need for GLP and What it Takes to get Accredited
                                        
–The Malaysian Scenario.
