Technical project management of your lab’s analytical validation project

Testing laboratories are under constant pressure to stay compliant with standards while expanding the number of molecular tests offered. Validating a workflow is one of the most critical steps prior to launching a new test successfully. Yet, many labs inadequately plan and execute their analytical validation (AV) process. Inefficient AV can potentially turn a 10-week validation
into a 40-week or more process, resulting in substantial delays to the lab’s ability to process valuable samples and significantly impacting the lab's business.

Analytical validation workflow completed 75% faster with AV consulting service


The AV consulting services can reduce your overall investment by up to 48% because of the time savings the service provides. Labs that perform AV themselves pay more in materials and labor, potentially incurring months of loss in revenue opportunity due to delays in sample processing.



As part of the engagement, our team provides key services throughout the process including:
Project management by an AV specialist
Dedicated on-site field applications specialist
Workflow training and optimization
Technical review
Optional: Confirmatory orthogonal testing support

What you receive:

Validation plan template
Protocol templates
Samples and controls
Data analysis consultation
Final report template
Optional: Orthogonal testing consultation

Unsure about the AV process?

Consider starting with a pre-validation evaluation. Our assay validation readiness (AVR) service helps save you time and costs by determining whether your workflow is ready to move on to a complete analytical validation.  

Guided by our global compliance services specialist (GCSS), the AVR service enables you to evaluate your workflow on a controlled scale, and helps you improve your chances for success before investing in a full scale assay workflow. The AVR service includes:

  • AVR control kit containing extracted DNA and workflow controls
  • Hands-on workflow training to demonstrate efficacy of the workflow
  • Final analysis report, evaluation consultation, and readiness checklist
