The Laboratory Informatics Experts

Computer System Validation (CSV)

CSols knows regulated companies (i.e. pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, etc.) like yours are mandated by the FDA, Health Canada, MHRA, EMA and other regulatory bodies to perform Computer Systems Validation, which can be complex, time consuming, costly, and risky.  And not properly validating your scientific software systems can result in one or many of the following:

  • Warning letters – 483
  • Consent decree(s)
  • Lawsuits / Fines
  • Plant shutdown
  • Indictments
  • Economic instability
  • Staff downsizing
  • Bankruptcy
  • Product recall
