What are Validation & Qualification?

In any life science industry, people, equipment, systems and/or software are needed to manufacture and process products.

All of these must be qualified: the manufacturer needs to prove that everything is installed correctly, works properly, and meets specified requirements.

Then, the process as a whole must be validated to ensure that the manufacturer will consistently produce a product that meets certain specifications.
