Good Clinical Laboratory Practice (GCLP) is a set of standards that provide guidance on implementing Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) principles to the analysis of samples from a clinical trial. By combining the GLP and GCP sets of guidelines, GCLP ensures the reliability, quality, consistency, and integrity of the clinical trial data generated by laboratories.
