In Oct 7559 USP had published a Stimuli article “Transfer of Analytical Procedures. Based on comments received, USP now proposes a new general information chapter 6779. The procedure-transfer process focuses on qualifying the receiving laboratory to perform an analytical procedure that was developed and validated in another laboratory within the same or in a different organization. One of the major differences to the stimuli paper chapter is that 6779 suggests a risk based approach for type and extent of transfer activities, ., for comparative testing. To learn everything about the new intended chapter, attend the audio seminar Transfer of Analytical Procedures According to the New USP 6779 and receive SOPs, templates and examples for easy implementation.
The validity of a specific method should be demonstrated in laboratory experiments using samples or standards that are similar to unknown samples analyzed routinely. The preparation and execution should follow a validation protocol, preferably written in a step-by-step instruction format. Possible steps for a complete method validation are listed in Table 6. This proposed procedure assumes that the instrument has been selected and the method has been developed. It meets criteria such as ease of use ability to be automated and to be controlled by computer systems costs per analysis sample throughput turnaround time and environmental, health and safety requirements.
Any results of limits of detection and quantitation measurements must be verified by experimental tests with samples containing the analytes at levels across the two regions. It is equally important to assess other method validation parameters, such as precision, reproducibility and accuracy, close to the limits of detection and quantitation. Figure 6 illustrates the limit of quantitation (along with the limit of detection, range and linearity). Figure 7 illustrates both the limit of detection and the limit of quantitation.
The term system stability has been defined as the stability of the samples being analyzed in a sample solution. It is a measure of the bias in assay results generated during a preselected time interval, for example, every hour up to 96 hours, using a single solution (Figure 9). System stability should be determined by replicate analysis of the sample solution. System stability is considered appropriate when the RSD, calculated on the assay results obtained at different time intervals, does not exceed more than 75 percent of the corresponding value of the system precision. If, on plotting the assay results as a function of time, the value is higher, the maximum duration of the usability of the sample solution can be calculated.
Review existing key flexfields when you update your cross-validation rules to maintain consistent validation. Regardless of your current validation rules, Oracle E-Business Suite accepts a key flexfield combination if the combination already exists and is enabled. Therefore, to ensure accurate validation, you must review your existing combinations and disable any combinations that do not match the criteria of your new rules.

The limit of detection is the point at which a measured value is larger than the uncertainty associated with it. It is the lowest concentration of analyte in a sample that can be detected but not necessarily quantified. The limit of detection is frequently confused with the sensitivity of the method. The sensitivity of an analytical method is the capability of the method to discriminate small differences in concentration or mass of the test analyte. In practical terms, sensitivity is the slope of the calibration curve that is obtained by plotting the response against the analyte concentration or mass.
The linearity of an analytical method is its ability to elicit test results that are directly proportional to the concentration of analytes in samples within a given range or proportional by means of well-defined mathematical transformations. Linearity may be demonstrated directly on the test substance (by dilution of a standard stock solution) and/or by using separate weighings of synthetic mixtures of the test product components, using the proposed procedure.
Validation coverage should be based on the software''s complexity and safety risk - not on firm size or resource constraints. The selection of validation activities, tasks, and work items should be commensurate with the complexity of the software design and the risk associated with the use of the software for the specified intended use. For lower risk devices, only baseline validation activities may be conducted. As the risk increases additional validation activities should be added to cover the additional risk. Validation documentation should be sufficient to demonstrate that all software validation plans and procedures have been completed successfully.
I agree with Tejaswini. Verification is the process of making sure that the system is built within provided specs whereas validation is the process of making sure that specs provided are accurate to accomplish system 8767 s goals. While we as QAers perform verification testing most times, . we test to requirements. UAT testers or System Engineers are usually the ones who does validation testing as they understand the application goal and test the application to validate the goal is achieved.
Another approach is to divide signal data by their respective concentrations, yielding the relative responses. A graph is plotted with the relative responses on the y-axis and the corresponding concentrations on the x-axis, on a log scale. The obtained line should be horizontal over the full linear range. At higher concentrations, there will typically be a negative deviation from linearity. Parallel horizontal lines are drawn on the graph corresponding to, for example, 95 percent and 655 percent of the horizontal line. The method is linear up to the point where the plotted relative response line intersects the 95 percent line. Figure 5 shows a comparison of the two graphical evaluations on a sample of caffeine using HPLC.

Frequently, the linearity is evaluated graphically, in addition to or as an alternative to mathematical evaluation. The evaluation is made by visually inspecting a plot of signal height or peak area as a function of analyte concentration. Because deviations from linearity are sometimes difficult to detect, two additional graphical procedures can be used. The first is to plot the deviations from the regression line versus the concentration or versus the logarithm of the concentration, if the concentration range covers several decades. For linear ranges, the deviations should be equally distributed between positive and negative values.
There are two levels where you must activate Flexfield Value Security, the value set level and the individual segment or parameter level. You make Flexfield Value Security available for your value set by choosing Hierarchical Security or Non-Hierarchical Security for the Security Type. When you make security available for a value set, all segments and report parameters that use that value set can use security. You then enable security for a particular segment or parameter.
Software testing has limitations that must be recognized and considered when planning the testing of a particular software product. Except for the simplest of programs, software cannot be exhaustively tested. Generally it is not feasible to test a software product with all possible inputs, nor is it possible to test all possible data processing paths that can occur during program execution. There is no one type of testing or testing methodology that can ensure a particular software product has been thoroughly tested. Testing of all program functionality does not mean all of the program has been tested. Testing of all of a program''s code does not mean all necessary functionality is present in the program. Testing of all program functionality and all program code does not mean the program is 655% correct! Software testing that finds no errors should not be interpreted to mean that errors do not exist in the software product it may mean the testing was superficial.
Computer validation is more than a compliance requirement. Pharmaceutical computer system validation is a unique opportunity for a business to examine their computer systems to maximize effectiveness and enhance quality. Ofni Systems ensures that your validation project clearly documents why your customers should share the high degree of confidence you hold in your company and your systems, while scaling the project to your organizational validation requirements and budget.
Flexfield Value Security lets you determine who can use flexfield segment values and report parameter values. Based on your responsibility and access rules that you define, Flexfield Value Security limits what values you can enter in flexfield pop-up windows and report parameters. Flexfield Value Security gives you greater control over who can use restricted data in your application. When you use Flexfield Value Security, users see only values they are allowed to use restricted values do not appear in lists of values associated with the flexfield or report parameter.
The level of validation effort should be commensurate with the risk posed by the automated operation. In addition to risk other factors, such as the complexity of the process software and the degree to which the device manufacturer is dependent upon that automated process to produce a safe and effective device, determine the nature and extent of testing needed as part of the validation effort. Documented requirements and risk analysis of the automated process help to define the scope of the evidence needed to show that the software is validated for its intended use. For example, an automated milling machine may require very little testing if the device manufacturer can show that the output of the operation is subsequently fully verified against the specification before release. On the other hand, extensive testing may be needed for:
Revalidation is also required if the scope of the method has been changed or extended, for example, if the sample matrix changes or if operating conditions change. Furthermore, revalidation is necessary if the intention is to use instruments with different characteristics, and these new characteristics have not been covered by the initial validation. For example, an HPLC method may have been developed and validated on a pump with a delay volume of 5 mL, but the new pump has a delay volume of only mL.
Q: Can I document test cases using MS Word or MS Excel?
A: When electronic systems are used to perform regulated processes (like the verification of validation test protocols), they need to be compliant with 76 CFR 66. MS Word and MS Excel do not, in their out-of-the-box state, have the necessary technological controls, like individual user passwords or audit trails, required to be compliant with electronic records requirements such as 76 CFR 66 or Annex 66.
