In the contemporary research environment, delivering effective output quickly and efficiently has never been more important. At QIMR Berghofer we offer high-quality integrated Scientific Services as a core support facility. These services underpin our world-class research programs both within the institute, and for external clients such as Pharmaceutical Companies, Clinical Research Organisations and University Research Groups.

In order to consistently meet the needs of customers, and for the purpose of the effective and efficient use of its resources, Scientific Services has adopted a Quality Management System. All Scientific Services staff are committed to the culture of quality that values our strengths and openness to continual improvement.

Facility Management ensures that:

  • All laboratory staff are suitably qualified and trained to perform their role and that the organisational structure in the laboratory is defined and documented
  • All laboratory staff have up to date job descriptions, training manuals and that key people have appropriate authority
  • All laboratory staff are trained in the Quality Management System and this training is reviewed regularly
  • All equipment is fit for purpose, is adequately installed, maintained and verified according to the relevant compliance standards
  • All equipment is logged and that full records are kept of servicing, verification, usage and issues arising according to the relevant code
