      DATE: April 2nd, 2019

      TIME: 10:00AM PDT

      For laboratories that operate within a quality management system, compliance with global standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 13485, ISO 17025, ISO 15189, GxP, and other country-specific regulations require documented verification that laboratory instruments are installed and operating according to the manufacturer’s specifications for the design's intended use. Performing these tests on your own can be complex, time-consuming, costly, and challenging to complete. A properly planned and scoped compliance initiative and process validation engagement is more flexible than a reactive engagement due to non-compliance. By providing peace of mind through testing and documentation to help ensure that instruments and equipment are working appropriately and producing high-quality data, qualifications are important to every laboratory, even those not operating in a regulated environment.

      In this webinar, you’ll hear from compliance specialists at Thermo Fisher Scientific on the importance of complete qualification protocols and documentation, their value in process validation, and the importance of maintaining a quality system.


      Learning Objectives:

      • Learn why qualifications (IQ/OQ/PQ) are important and when they are required

      • Learn how instrument and equipment qualifications fit into process validation

      • Learn what is included in qualifications from Thermo Fisher Scientific
