The purpose of this document is to standardize the sample collection procedure during clinical studies of piperaquine antimalarial drugs. This should be considered as a recommendation or as a definition of minimum requirements, created by the Worldwide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN), aiming to achieve homogeneous quality in the pre-analytical phase of studies and to provide guidelines in the processes of collection, processing, preserving, storage, shipment and safe handling of samples from human origin.
