Calibration and Qualification in Analytical Laboratories

Laboratory equipment should be calibrated and/or qualified to demonstrate suitability for the intended use. Laboratory systems including equipment are amongst key targets of FDA inspections. They are considered high risk systems because they have a high impact on product quality. Despite the fact that equipment calibration and qualification is nothing new and companies spend a lot of time, it is a frequently cited deviation in FDA inspectional observations and warning letters. Companies are unsure on what exactly to qualify, test and document.

For easy implementation, attendees will receive:

  • 2 SOPs
  • Change control for analytical equipment
  • Allocating Analytical Instruments to USP <1058> Categories
  • 20+ Examples for Instrument OQ Testing
Areas Covered in the Session :

  • Lab equipment requirements for calibration and qualification
