Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

In clinical research, the International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) defines SOPs as “detailed, written instructions to achieve uniformity of the performance of a specific function”.

SOPs at EAU RF is applied for related clinical studies. There the focus is always set on repeated application of unchanged processes and procedures and its documentation, hence supporting the segregation of origins, causes and effects. The study director is mainly responsible for SOPs. The Quality Assurance Unit consist of individuals who are responsible for monitoring whether the study report and tests are meeting the SOP. Herewith we present our EAU RF SOPs for setting up a Registry and for the collection of blood, urine and specimen.

Please find below a list of currently available SOPs
