Qualification procedures

Antec has developed a number of procedures for Installation Qualification (IQ), Performance Qualification (PQ), and Operational Qualification (OQ) for all our instruments. In addition, we offer Preventive Maintenance and Calibration (PM/Cal) services. Certified engineers can be scheduled on request for on-site or remote assisted services

Installation Qualification: to ensure a successful installation, the IQ document lists the preparations and site requirements for the customer. It also has a checklist for the service technician to cover before and during installation.

Operational Qualification: during an OQ, the operation and output of a potentiostat/detector are checked with an electronic dummy cell.

Performance Qualification: The performance of the HPLC-ECD system is tested with calibration standards. The test measures repeatability of signal and retention time, linearity, peak height, background current, and for flow cells with glassy carbon electrode the noise and s/n ratio.

In all qualifications the resulting reports (see table) are signed off by a qualified laboratory representative and the service engineer.
