PyroTherm 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant


PyroTherm is the core module of PyroLab. The system includes the basic thermal block with the standard cover and integrating software. An optional cover with venting and gas inlet manifold for gas purging and fluid mixing will be available soon. The software controls temperature requirements - either isothermal or programmed -, time intervals, and mechanical cooling. Sample handling is supported by a sophisticated sample tracking software module. Standard, supplies, reagents, consumables, and other equipment used in the process can be data entered for full documentation. EQU Application Integration System enables value added data management for QC, QA, method development and drug discovery..

DQ-IQ-OQ-PQ and 21 CFR part 11

Regulatory compliance in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device, industries is the foundation of good business practices. DQ-IQ-OQ-PQ documents for PyroTherm provide significant support to reduce the risk of non-compliance.

DQ (Design Qualification) - is the foundation of good science & good compliance practices. You cannot get more out of a system that has been built into it. DQ is the tool & methodology to make the evaluation of suitability for specific requirements, including worst-case-scenario. DQ also provides the baseline for meaningful Performance Qualification (PQ) monitoring; without DQ, PQ flounders, it does not exist. 21 CFR Part 11 compliance is a major functionality relative to Design Qualification.
In the first part let us consider what may be the most important questions to ask relative to 21 CFR Part 11 DQ. STOP

DQ supports the functional & quality specifications designed into PyroTherm. Documentary proof of DQ compliance includes:

  1. Software Validation Plan,
  2. Software Validation Summary,
  3. 21 CFR Part 11 Validation Summary,
  4. Measurement Performance Design Summary, and
  5. Measurement Compliance Summary.

IQ (Installation Qualification) - IQ supports the requirement for proper installation and acceptance qualification for PyroTherm. Documentary proof of IQ compliance includes:

  1. Receipt & acceptance checklist,
  2. Physical & electrical compliance checklist,
  3. Environmental compliance checklist,
  4. Training compliance checklist, and
  5. Final IQ Summary.

OQ (Operational Qualification) - OQ supports the specification compliant functioning of the system. Documentary proof of OQ compliance includes:

  1. 21 CFR Part 11 operational specification checklist,
  2. Software operational specification checklist,
  3. Instrument interface operational specification checklist,
  4. Instrument operational specification checklist, and
  5. Final OQ Summary.

PQ (Performance Qualification) - PQ supports quality evaluation & quality compliance management of the system. PQ compliance models include:

  1. 21 CFR Part 11 compliance models,
  2. SQC models for instrument qualification review,
  3. SQC models for method qualification review,
  4. SQC models for vendor qualification review, and
  5. SQC models for OOS investigations.
