Analytical instruments should be qualified to demonstrate suitability for the intended use. Despite the fact that instrument qualification is nothing new and companies spend a lot of time, it is a frequently cited deviation in FDA inspectional observations and warning letters.

Companies are unsure on what exactly to qualify or re-qualify, test and document. The main reason is that unlike for analytical methods there are no clear standards for equipment qualification. This has changed. The USP has developed a new standard for analytical instrument qualification (AIQ).

Reference material for easy implementation:

  • SOP: Analytical Instrument Qualification for <1058>
  • SOP: Allocating Analytical Instruments to USP <1058> categories
  • SOP: Procedures and deliverables for USP <1058> categories

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • FDA and EU analytical instrument requirements
  • Most common inspection problems
  • Terminology, scope and principles of US chapter <1058>
  • AIQ and its relation to method validation, system suitability testing and quality control checks
  • Essential steps for AIQ: DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ
  • Purpose and contents of design qualification, installation qualification, operational qualification, performance qualification
  • Allocation of instruments to the three categories A, B and C
  • Procedures and validation deliverables for the three categories
  • Recommendations for firmware and software validation
  • Roles and responsibilities: QA, manufacturer, user
  • Approach for automated systems (incl. firmware/computer systems)
  • Qualification of existing systems
  • Requalification after equipment changes (move, repair, firmware upgrade, hardware upgrade)
  • Recommendations for effective implementation
