Process Validation and Verification

Process Validation and Verification

The development and manufacturing of medical devices are subject to stringent regulatory requirements to ensure the safety, efficacy, and quality of these products. Process validation and verification are essential steps in establishing confidence that a manufacturing process can consistently produce a product that meets predetermined specifications and quality attributes.

Protheragen-ING Lab specializes in providing comprehensive validation and verification services for medical devices. Our expertise lies in ensuring that your medical devices meet the highest standards of safety, efficacy, and reliability through rigorous process validation and verification.

Understanding process validation and verification

  • Process Validation

Process Validation involves establishing evidence through objective means that a process consistently produces a result meeting its predetermined specifications. This includes installation qualification (IQ), operational qualification (OQ), and performance qualification (PQ).

  • Process Verification

Process verification, on the other hand, is the act of proving that the process, as planned, is capable of producing the desired product. It involves testing the process to ensure that it operates within the defined parameters and can consistently produce the intended results.
