IQ validates the accurate installation, validation, and documentation of manufacturing equipment, environment, and utilities.

Equipment IQ:

Guarantees the precise installation and calibration of all manufacturing equipment, ensuring seamless functionality as intended.

Environment IQ:

Affirms the appropriate setup of the manufacturing environment, prioritizing the health and safety of the manufacturing team.

Utility IQ:

Confirms the proper functioning of systems and equipment essential for product creation, such as cameras, printers, computer and networking hardware, and their supporting infrastructure.

OQ validates the adherence of specific operating ranges and the consistent performance of equipment within those parameters.

Equipment Functionality OQ:

Demonstrates the equipment’s operation within established parameters and its ability to sustain these conditions during regular use.

User Training OQ:

Ensures comprehensive training for the team to proficiently operate the equipment and produce consistent, high-quality devices.

Monitoring and Control OQ:

Illustrates the consistent maintenance of optimal manufacturing conditions during the production process, as facilitated by the equipment.

Software OQ:

Confirms the software’s efficiency in executing scheduled tasks and complying with technical requirements.

PQ evaluates the equipment’s performance in a real-world scenario, indicating if it’s the correct choice for your medical device manufacturing process.

Performance OQ

Verifies that the equipment performs consistently according to its intended use.

Scale-Up OQ

Ensure that the manufacturing equipment can accommodate an increase in production to avoid operational issues and process alterations in the unit.

Product OQ

Assess product quality by performing in-depth tests on specific devices. This testing ensures that the device conforms to strict quality requirements and regulation.

During IQ, it may be crucial to verify the stability of power supply to an autoclave. For instance, OQ might involve testing the consistent performance of an ultrasound machine irrespective of the operator. PQ commonly evaluates equipment to ensure steady delivery of intended product quality levels and compliance with regulations without deviation.

The validation of the medical device manufacturing process through IQ, OQ, and PQ testing can yield significant advantages, including enhanced confidence in equipment performance and regulatory adherence, reduced discrepancies, and optimized resource utilization.
