Where and How Services are Provided

Archer Laboratory Consulting, LLC is located in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. While the majority of our clients are in the Oklahoma area, we have served laboratories throughout the Midwest.

Both locally, and for our long distance associations, we use a combination of electronic (remote) and on-site methods to provide our services. Many of our clients utilize our services as their ongoing Technical Consultant or Laboratory Director.

We work with our clients to provide the most efficient, productive process for document review. From monthly on-site review to quarterly on-site review, or even remote document review, we are flexible and can accommodate the needs of your laboratory.

Some labs choose to send their records for review by fax or email and they are reviewed remotely, with only a quarterly or semi-annual on-site visit.

We will work with you to offer the services that fit your needs.

Writing policies and procedures can usually be performed remotely. Temporary services such as assisting with writing a Plan of Correction can often be performed remotely.
