Service & Compliance

In the highly-regulated Pharmaceutical, Food Medical devices and Clinical industries, even tiny inconsistencies can compound to serious issues without the proper qualification and validation protocols in place.

Qualification & Validation processes will give you and your client, peace of mind

Richmond Scientific now offers the following qualification & validation services.

(Installation Qualification, Operational Qualification and Performance Qualification)


These three independent, documented procedures are used together to check and test that a device is

  • Installed correctly
  • Meets its design requirements and specifications
  • Operates the way in which it was designed under load

We offer qualifications for all of your GC, GCMS and HPL, UV-vis, FTIR, Centrifuges, Titrators, pH Meters, Polarimeters,  devices either as a one off or as an ongoing service contract for year round peace of mind.

Installation Qualification (IQ)

Newly installed or modified equipment must first be validated. Successful IQ is typically measured by how well the installation process followed the manufacturer's guidelines and met their requirements.

Operational Qualification (OQ)

This identifies and inspects the components of equipment that impact product quality and ensures they’re operating within specific limits.

Performance Qualification (PQ)

The final step in equipment qualification is like the Operational Qualification but the equipment will contain a load or process medium to test how it performs in “real-world” conditions.

Temperature Mapping/ Thermal Validation

Essential to the complex requirements of regulated environments, temperature mapping and validation is critical for quality control, product protection and regulatory compliance.


Our temperature mapping services ensure that your heating and cooling devices such as Fridges, Freezers, Autoclaves, Ovens and Furnaces or temperature controlled storage areas are performing within predefined limits.
