CIQ – Customised Instrument Qualification

beyontics CIQ – Customised instrument qualification with full respect to regulatory demands.

Customised and harmonized.

In contrast with most instrument qualification software programs, beyontics CIQ takes into account the analytical work of your lab, providing harmonised test procedures, instead of following different specifications from various equipment manufacturers.

Full integration into your present CDS.

beyontics CIQ is implemented as an Empower project and equipped with adaptable methods and customisable reports.  All data and results are stored in your own CDS. By this, full access is even given to all meta-data that was generated during qualification. Test outcome is assessed for each single test point and for the whole qualification providing a final PASS or FAIL statement.

Ready to use. No further validation effort.

As beyontics CIQ is provided as an Empower project. The product can simply be installed into your CDS using the existing procedures for importing projects or eWorkflows. The whole product is designed using the proprietary options of your CDS. The customisations are delivered in a validated state.

beyontics CIQ – 100% Compliance to your needs.

The complexity of the tests as well as the limits are defined according to your requirements: Only the relevant instrument modules are tested!

Saving time and resources. Minimising downtime for your instruments.

Fully automated procedures.

beyontics CIQ for Empower ist designed in a way that allows for a minimum of efforts for carrying out a qualification run. Templates are offered for all tests and because of that a qualification run just needs to be started and after completion is evaluated as a whole in the CDS and can be reported with the CDSs‘ own tools. Assistance of external evaluation programs is not needed at all. Qualification runs of several instruments at the same time is thinkable.

Minimizing training effort for service staff.

beyontics CIQ is designed in a way, that only a basic user knowledge of the applied CDS is needed due to the high automation of the product. In addition a user guide is provided giving a step by step guidance for the qualification procedure.  Training or introduction is offered by beyontics.

beyontics CIQ from a regulatory point of view. Secure and traceable.

Avoiding redundancies.

Following aspects need to be respected when instrument qualification is carried out by an external service engineer with vendor specific software and hardware:

  • Is the software the engineer was using 21 CFR 11 compliant?
  • Is the computer hardware and software installation that were used during qualification qualified accordingly?
  • How can the electronic raw data be provided in a human readable form during an audit?

For this purpose a qualified installation of the software the service engineer was using would be needed. Do you want to purchase the software and keep a qualified installation in place merely for this purpose?

beyontics CIQ for Empower is the simplest answer to your regulatory demands.

Many customers who need to pass an  audit say ‚No‘. They prefer their instrument qualification being performed in their present CDS installation. Those customers would need to provide methods and validated reports and they would also need trained service staff. All this is covered by beyontics CIQ.
