Laboratory instrument validation

Instrument selection, validation and change

Life Sciences industry regulations require laboratory equipment to be validated and maintained under change control for their full lifecycle.  Failure to demonstrate a state of control can result in regulatory citations, fines, product recall and risk to product license.   The typical business process to comply with the regulations is a manual, paper-based process that is inefficient, time consuming, labour intensive and susceptible to data integrity and compliance risks.  This paper-based process does not scale and does not support cross site alignment such as leveraging processes and sharing of information.

Kneat’s analytical instrument lifecycle management solution will digitize and simplify this process, assure continuous compliance, increase productivity by up to 100% and cut cycle times by up to 60%.

  • Requirements capture and traceability management
  • Risk assessment
  • Test protocol development (FAT, SAT, IQ, OQ, PQ/UAT)
  • Paperless test execution with integrated deviation management
  • Validation summary final report
  • Real time validation metrics
  • Validation status monitoring and periodic review management
  • Decommissioning
  • Part 11/Annex 11 environment

The benefits are many from cycle time and cost reductions to quality and compliance assurance improvements:
