You can add qualification services to complement your service plan. Instrument hardware qualifications for the QuantStudio systems include: installation qualification (IQ), operational qualification (OQ), and performance qualification (PQ) or instrument performance verification (IPV). These services verify and document your instrument’s ability to meet manufacturer design specifications for performance.
IQ—provides documented evidence and verification that the instrument has been delivered and installed according to manufacturer’s specifications
OQ—provides documented verification that the instrument subsystems are operating as designed. Verifies that the functionality of an instrument meets the manufacturer’s operational specifications.
PQ or IPV—provides documented verification that the instrument system can perform effectively and reproducibly within performance specifications. Helps ensure confidence in results by verifying that the accuracy and precision of an instrument is maintained.
IQ and OQ are recommended at installation or when moving the instrument. Our qualification specialists will partner with you to deliver timely, cost-effective, and trusted qualification services that including reliable audit-style documentation that will help ensure your instruments meet regulatory requirements.
During the first year all costs for travel or shipping, labor, and parts for repairs are covered. Installation varies by system from on-site system installation by professionally trained field service engineers to user installation with the aid of our Digital SmartStart orientation. See individual model pages for more details.
Through immersive, real-time collaboration tools, we can help identify and possibly resolve issues remotely in minutes, helping to eliminate the need for on-site repairs that could keep you idle for days. Included with all QuantStudio real-time pcr systems.
