This document describes bench marks, Good Automated Laboratory Practices (GALPs), for assuring the reliability of laboratory data. The GALPs are principles and guidelines to regulations for laboratories that use or are planning to use a wide range of automated data collection and management systems. This document is divided into two sections. The first chapter formally establishes the GALPs, describes the purpose they serve, provides background information about studies that led to their development, and explains their scope and applicability. The second chapter provides laboratories with additional explanations of each provision and other relevant information to assist laboratory staff in implementing each applicable provision.
