  • Test method validation

    We have been certified recently. Nevertheless I still have some troubles with test method validation. It’s a very complex material.

    Currently, I struggle to establish whether a validation has to be conducted on some benchmark or our product. The product of ours is being developed. Currently we found optimal conditions to conduct the trial of production process. Development of the product is promising so we’ve decided to validate a crucial process. Do you have any thoughts on that matter?

  • MDR - difference between configurable device and device with accessories

    I am working on the documents to comply with the MDR for our products. I'm a bit confused about what applies to my case: We send a kit with a main device and some parts that can optionally be attached to the main device for certain patient groups to fulfill the intended purpose of the main device. So some patients will need the parts on the device, others not. Can we call this a configurable device or is this a device with accessories? And if this is a configurable device, when would this have been accessories? If I understand it correctly from the MDR, we need a separate Declaration of Conformity and Technical file for accessories, but not for components of a configurable device, right?

  • Questions about the implementation

    1. When the ISO needs to be finished / audited? (e.g. when company is founded, when first device is sold or…? – E.g. Section 7: Product Realization is with planning etc. is running right now while the company is not yet founded.

    2. Is English as language enough or is the country language additionally necessary?

    3. Is the IVD guideline 98/79/EG (IVDD) and/or German “In-vitro-Diagnostika-Verordnung (IVDR)“ additionally necessary and incorporated in your toolkit? If not, can you recommend a toolkit for this? Background: In simple terms, the product is a special microscope with which a view of a tissue sample can be created and viewed. The interpretation of this image is done by a pathologist (unlike, for example, a blood pressure monitor, where the device interprets something). Staining of the tissue sample is done outside the device using standard procedures/products from appropriate manufacturers (e.g. H&E staining).

  • ISO 13485 implementation

  • Integration ISO 13485 & ISO 9001

    I have already purchased the toolkit of ISO 13485 + MDR and
    I noticed that in the Procedures there are references to ISO 9001.

    But I don't see an ISO 9001 + ISO 13485 integrated toolkit on your website,

    so if I want to get the ISO 9001 toolkit,

    should I still keep it separate from ISO 13485?

  • Post-market surveillance

    I wonder if you can help me with one question, please? I have read that ISO 13485 2016 places emphasis on post-market surveillance, and this terms appears in the glossary. Yet I cannot find this term in the text of the standard, although I suppose the meaning is in Section 8. Is there anywhere in the standard that actually asks for post market surveillance please?
