Level: Beginner Job Function: Analyst / Scientist / Engineer Swetlana Berger, Expert Biostatistician, GSK Vaccines In clinical trials, the procedures to prepare human biological samples for the testing and the testing procedure are rather regulated and complex, with requirements to accurately and precisely follow several steps. If one of the implemented control procedures fails, investigations take place and the variety of questions to address is wide. For example, is there an impact from any new equipment? May the observed difference be due to changes in the manufacturing of reagents provided by external suppliers? Do we observe a single event or is it a general shift in performance? JMP is versatile and flexible software that we consider to be the perfect choice for such non-standard investigative analyses and it is able to address the variety of questions raised. We will show how JMP tools and platforms can be used to investigate the origin of the failure and to answer these questions.

In clinical trials, the procedure to prepare human samples for the testing is rather complicated: several steps need to be followed, with accuracy and precision. But also the time needed to accomplish each part of the process must be evaluated: what happens if one lab technician is slower than another? What time window can be considered acceptable for a specific step? We will try to answer these questions using JMP tools and platforms, from the planning phase of the experiment (DoE) to the analysis of data (contingency analysis).
