Bluestone Operations

Overview

The Bluestone Center for Clinical Research has the facilities and resources to optimize scientifically rigorous clinical research for individual investigators, industry, academic institutions, governmental agencies, and foundations.

We are structured to conduct clinically relevant and scientifically valid studies in a time-sensitive fashion. An extensive array of Bluestone-specific Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as well as training and auditing processes are regularly reviewed and updated for investigators and staff. Bluestone personnel have expertise in all aspects of clinical research, including GCP guidelines, HIPAA regulations, federal regulations, and NIH standards. Calibration, validation, and periodic reassessments for quality control are part of each study.
