Pharma QC Systems Qualification

Proven Protocols and Expertise to Qualify Our Products for Use in Your Testing Processes

cGMPs/cGLPs require equipment and test methods to be validated before routine use. This can be time consuming and delay the start of critical QC procedures. Receive prepared protocols and have your new QC systems validated by our experts to save time.

Reduce Development Time & Validation Cost

Your protocol preparation may require around 4 weeks of development (research on applicable regulations, acceptance criteria definition, test method writing, formatting, etc).

Estimated IQ/OQ completion time:

  • Without pre-written protocol: 6 to 7 weeks
  • With our pre-written protocol: 2 to 3 weeks
  • With on-site validation service: less than a week

Quickly integrate equipment into your process pipeline with confidence using product specific test methods.

Rely on Our Comprehensive Validation Package either On-Site or Remote

We have experienced and trained validation engineers to assist in Validation Protocol implementation within the QC microbiology laboratory, so your QC/QA departments do not have to allocate resources. Technical training on your installed equipment is also provided during the validation engineer’s visit. In order to maintain regulatory compliance over time we recommend performing a periodic requalification of your QC testing equipment.

Validation Protocols

Our validation protocols are based on our internal product qualification test methods. These extensive protocols will enable the QC/QA Lab to quickly initiate your Validation Master Plan and perform IQ, OQ and PQ (requalification) with ease. They follow international guidelines such as EP/USP and GMP.
