Qualification Services Provided
- Protocol Generation
- Installation Qualification (IQ)
Utilized for providing documentation to verify that all key aspects of the design, procurement, and installation are reported.
- Operational Qualification (OQ)
Utilized for providing documentation verifying that the system performs as intended at all anticipated operating ranges.
- Performance Qualification (PQ)
Utilized for providing documentation verifying that the process does what it is intended to do, in the correct and anticipated manner.
- Continuous Qualification (CQ)/ Re-Qualification (RQ)
Utilized for providing documentation verifying that the process is still performing to the standards necessary. Companies vary on their determination as to how often to perform re-qualifications. It is common to see sterilizers requalified annually, and CTUs vary between being requalified annually to every five years and everything in-between.
When it is time to retire a piece of equipment often companies will do a final qualification to ensure that before the unit is shut down that even till the end that it was meeting specification.
When To Use Ellab For Your Qualification and Validation Services
Unexpected projects: There are so many resources at your facility. When you have a project that needs to be completed quickly and you want a company to come in that can write the protocol, provide our own equipment, and staff that can be independent that you can rely on as your expert for those projects.
Large projects: When you have a large volume of qualifications or re-qualifications that need to be completed. We can handle projects that are larger in scale on condensed timelines due to the skill of our staff, and the quantity of validation equipment we have available. We can use your validation equipment as well. Our team is not only familiar with Ellab’s equipment, but also other systems.
Specialized Expertise: Our team is highly trained. Often clients hire us to perform some of the more complicated qualifications such as autoclaves and Steam-in-Place. We understand the needs to get your autoclave to cGMP, cGLP and EU (EN-285) specifications.
Staffing: Sometimes our clients just need an extra set of hands full time at their facility. We can provide staff for short and longer term durations.
