The FDA and GLP require companies to certify and validate instrumentation. TA Instruments’ Installation Qualification (IQ) and Operational Qualification (OQ) procedures are targeted to meet that need.
The IQ/OQ protocol will define the methods and documentation that will be used to evaluate the TA instrument for installation and operation in accordance with TA Instruments specifications and intended use. Successful completion of this protocol will verify that the instrument operates in accordance with intended usage.
Installation checks will be performed to document that the controller, instrument, and major environmental accessories are installed with proper connections and utilities. Instrument calibration will be verified. Trained, knowledgeable personnel will perform these qualification studies. Any exceptional conditions encountered during the qualification studies will be identified and noted.
If the IQ/OQ package is purchased with the original system, our Field Service Representative will complete the procedure at no additional cost when performed during the initial installation visit. If purchased at any other time, the customary travel and labor rates will be charged in addition to the cost of the IQ/OQ package.
