Qualification procedures


PQ PM kitPQ tubing kit pn 250.1052 (left) and Calibration (CAL) kit pn 250.3050 (right).

Antec developed procedures and kits for Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), Performance Qualification (PQ) and Preventive Maintenance Calibration (PM-Cal) for Antec detectors, ALEXYS and ROXY systems. Each procedure is described in a document that includes a sign-off section for the engineer and customer.


Our Dialogue software (professional version) uses a convenient and user-friendly test script that generates a standardized Excel file as output for the OQ and PM-Cal procedures.
