Event description

Description

Analytical instruments should be qualified and systems should be validated to demonstrate suitability for the intended use. This two day in-person seminar will provide attendees the regulatory background and guidance through the complete process from planning and writing requirement specifications to vendor assessment, installation and operational qualification and ongoing testing during routine use. This interactive workshop will help attendees understand the instrument qualification and system validation processes and will provide templates and examples to develop inspection ready documentation.

Practical examples and interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations while 50% of the total time will be dedicated to practical sessions. During the seminar, attendees will work in small groups on case studies and prepare the answers using prepared fill-in templates. After the course a large variety of tools such as SOPs, validation examples and checklists will be readily available on a dedicated website that can be used to easily implement what they have learned from the course.

Seminar Fee Includes:
Lunch
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material
Attendance Certificate
$100 Gift Cert for next seminar
