Validating The Simoa Technology

Most of the advanced instruments used in bioanalysis—such as Gas Chromatography (GC), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), and Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) for example—are automated. Thus, they are controlled by complex computer systems, and the information they generate is stored electronically. If these systems are to be used in regulated research studies in the US, EU, and Japan, the instruments themselves must be qualified and their supporting software and processes must be validated as meeting regulatory requirements.
