CSV WebinarIf you use laboratory informatics software (e.g., LIMS, CDS) in your regulated lab, it must be validated. A fully documented validation is the only way to provide evidence that your software operates according to how it was developed and that it’s fit for purpose based on your intended use. Otherwise, any data you collect, analyze, report or store will be considered at risk and likely out of compliance. CSols wants to make sure you achieve excellence, whether you are just getting started with CSV or stuck somewhere along the way. We are here to help and will be your trusted partner.

How do you know if you need help with your Validation?

Do you find yourself asking these questions?

  • What else do I need to do outside of what the vendor provided?
  • We are moving from R&D to a regulated environment where validation is required – what does that mean?
  • The auditor said our systems are not fully validated – how do we close our gaps?
  • My validation project is dragging and taking forever; what can we do to get it finished?
  • The last validation we did took forever, and we want it to go quicker this time – how do we find a better way?
  • We de-scoped a lot to meet the go-live date; what do we do if we want to go back and add that functionality into the system?
  • Our validation resources quit or have been reassigned – how can we augment our staff to meet our go-live date?
