In some industries, new equipment must go through a validation process when first installed. This is commonplace in the pharmaceutical industry and for medical device manufacturers regulated by the FDA. Generally called IQ/OQ/PQ (installation qualification, operational qualification, and performance qualification), this process is meant to ensure that the equipment purchased will perform as promised and helps to confirm that certain levels of quality are adhered to during the manufacturing process.
From balances and load cells to tensile testers and materials testing systems used in R&D or production, Nicol Scales & Measurement can help with the IQ/OQ process and assist you with your validation needs.
