Validation Life Cycle

We provide high-quality validation life cycle services for equipment, facilities, and utilities in pharmaceutical, biologics, medical devices, diagnostics, consumer products, cosmetics and veterinary industries. Our experience includes projects ranging in size from qualification of a single piece of equipment to complete turnkey validation of the equipment, facilities, utilities and processes in a start-up facility. We have expertise in the qualification of classified environments, containment solutions, clean utility systems and highly complex process equipment. We provide reliable and expert resources and deliver quality solutions.

Our experience in temperature mapping allows us to offer our customers a wide range of services. We have experience mapping extreme temperature environments such as cryogenic environments and tunnels as well as more usual equipment such as autoclaves, warehouses and stability cabinets.  We perform temperature-mapping studies utilizing Kaye Instruments metrology equipment. The Kaye application software can be configured to perform data calculations such as minimum, maximum, average, lethality, etc.
