The Countess 3 21 CFR Part 11 Software Module is for use with the Countess 3 and Countess 3 FL automated cell counters and supports compliance with 21 CFR, Part 11 FDA guidelines for security, auditing, and electronic (SAE) signatures using a SAE administration console.
21 CFR Part 11 compliance is composed of both procedural and technical requirements. Procedural requirements are the standard operating procedures instituted by the end user, and technical requirements are the functional characteristics of the compliance management software used. Together, when met, these requirements enable a customer to meet 21 CFR part 11 guidelines for traceability of electronic records.
