Article on Effective techniques for extracting information from geochemical data are largely ignored by the industry

In the area of geochemical data analysis techniques and obtaining geochemical extracting information; most mining specialists strongly recommend an approach that goes beyond merely asking the laboratory for geochemical extracting information of a gold test by sampling every meter of the drill core of a trench and using multielement analysis. There, however, exist other methods of geochemical data analysis techniques and obtaining geochemical extracting information. But these are largely ignored by the industry.

As a result of following only one method and technique for geochemical data analysis and obtaining geochemical extracting information, an average geologist is not generally well trained on the necessary techniques and methods. Whenever a request for such data mining techniques analyses comes up, the geologist is short of the techniques and methods needed for geochemical extracting information, including the use of compositional data analysis. This results in failure in the endeavor of extracting all the geochemical data analysis information contained in the data.

Insight into how to use geochemical data analysis techniques and obtaining geochemical extracting information

Noting the deficiency in the methods used for optimal geochemical data analysis techniques and obtaining geochemical extracting information; GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of regulatory compliance, is organizing a two-day learning session that inculcates the right learning in this area.

Ensuring that analytical data in laboratories are accurate, reliable and consistent

Ensuring that analytical data are reliable, consistent and accurate is the fundamental reason for which analytical methods and procedures need to be validated. The employment of proper scientific methods and procedures by laboratories and validating them ensures the reliability, consistency and accuracy of the analytical data.

The purpose of doing so is to corroborate the suitability of intended use of a particular test and to confirm that the product produced in the laboratory meets the requirements of quality, purity, identity and strength in the required and set measure.

The imperative for validation of analytical data

The reason for which analytical data has to be validated for the criteria described above can be summarized in the following:

o  Because of the direct relationship it has to the quality of the data it validates;

o  To make sure that the analytical data is trustworthy;, and

o  Finally, validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods are a regulatory requirement, as set out by the different regulatory bodies such as the FDA and the EMA, and standards such as the USP and ICH.

Method validation and compendial methods

Of late, method validation has been receiving very high attention from both regulatory agencies and industry task forces alike. Both the FDA and the EMA have recently released guidelines on method validation and transfer. In addition, USP has suggested new chapters for approaches to the following:

o  Integrated validation

o  Verification and transfer of analytical procedures

o  Equivalency testing and for statistical evaluation.

What about compendial methods?

The verification of compendial methods is needed to demonstrate two aspects:

o  The suitability of laboratories to successfully run the method, and

o  To demonstrate through testing that transfer of methods, when carried on between laboratories, is successful. When a laboratory intends to use an alternative method in place of a compendial method, verification of compendial measures should establish the equivalency of the alternative method.

Comprehensive learning on validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods

A two-day seminar from GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance will address all the issues relating to validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods. At this seminar, Ludwig Huber, the director and editor of Labcompliance, the global online resource for validation and compliance and highly respected author of several books on compliance, will be Director.

To gain the full knowledge of all areas relating to validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods; register by logging on to http://www.globalcompliancepanel.com/control/globalseminars/~product_id=900858?linkedin-SEO .

This course has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

Contents of the two-day seminar

Over the course of these two days, Huber will equip participants with the background needed for getting a proper understanding of the requirements that need to go into validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods. An even more significant learning he will offer is the one on strategies needed for this.

He will provide tools to implement most critical requirements. Also provided are templates and examples for developing inspection-ready documentation. Interactivity will be a major component of this seminar. Huber will sprinkle workshop exercises into and between the presentations. Around half of the total time will be dedicated to practical sessions with real life examples.

An additional bonus for participants is the assortment of tools the Director of this seminar will offer, such as SOPs, validation examples and checklists, all of which will be made readily available on a dedicated website, and which can be used to easily implement the learning gained in the course.

Unravelling the DHF, Technical File and Design Dossier

technical

Design History File (DHF), Technical File and Design Dossier are important regulatory documents for a medical device. Design Control and Design History File are regulatory documents for medical devices in the FDA, while the Technical File and Design Dossier serve the same purpose for the EU’s regulatory body, the MDD.

The Design History File

The history of the Design History File is an interesting one. It evolved out of the FDA’s realization, over time and experience; that the major part of a device’s problems was happening during the design stage and change phases, regardless of whether it was a new product or a changed one. This led to the birth of the concept of Design Control, aimed at tracking, monitoring and correcting the design elements at every stage from start to finish.

What should the Design History File contain?

The DHF should contain the following:

dhftechnicalfileanddesigndossier2

 

Now, the Technical File and Design Dossier

In short and simple terms, one can understand the Technical File and the Design Dossier as the EU’s version of the Design Control and the DHF. In other words, what Design Control and Design History File are for the FDA; the Technical File and Medical Device (MDD) are for the Medical Device Directive.

What should the TF and DD contain?

These files should have all the basic sections needed to support the requirements of the Medical Device Directive (MDD), Essential Requirements (for that product), and the company’s “Declaration of Conformity” for that product:

  • General Information/Product Description/EC Authorized Representative
  • Classification Determination
  • Essential Requirements
  • Risk Analysis
  • Labeling
  • Product Specifications
  • Design Control
  • Clinical Evaluation
  • System Test Reports
  • Functional Bench Testing
  • Lab Testing
  • Sterilization validation (or AAMI TIR 28 Analysis)
  • Packaging Qualifications
  • Manufacturing
  • Sterilization
  • Conclusion
  • Declaration of Conformity
  • Appendix

Differences between the Technical File and Design Dossier

At a broad level, in general terms, while the Technical File is for MDD Class I and Class II a or II b; the Design Dossier is for MDD Class III devices

While Technical Files are retained in the premises of the manufacturer or the Authorized Representative for review of the Competent Authorities or/and Notified Body; Design Dossiers need to be submitted to the Notified Body for review before the product gets its CE-marking.

Preparing premarket submissions that win regulatory approval

Preparing premarket submissions that win regulatory approval is a complex task, even for the most seasoned professional in the medical devices industry. This is because of the highly stringent nature of the regulatory approval pathways, namely the Premarket Approval (PMA) process and FDA regulatory 510(k) clearance.

What makes preparing premarket submissions that win regulatory approval challenging? It is the fact, acknowledged by the FDA itself, that the PMA is the most stringent type of device marketing application required by the FDA. The PMA should be secured from the FDA before the company markets the medical device. The FDA gives its approval of the PMA for a Class II medical device only after it determines that all the elements necessary for assuring that the application has enough scientific confirmation that it is safe and effective for the intended uses it is going to be put to. Preparing premarket submissions thus is an onerous task by any stretch of imagination.

Another element of preparing premarket submissions that win regulatory approval

Another aspect of preparing premarket submissions is the 510 (k). The 510 (k) is essentially a kind of premarket submission that is made to the FDA to show that the device that a manufacturer intends to market is at least as effective and safe as a legally marketed device of its equivalence, already in the market, that is not subject to PMA. The FDA calls this principle the substantial equivalency (SE) and the device that is used as the reference for equivalence, the predicate device. The requirements governing SE are contained in 21 CFR 807.92(a) (3).

On top of all these, regulatory professionals have the responsibility of creating preparing premarket submissions that should not only convincingly demonstrate the ways of stating and explaining regulatory arguments for their device to the U.S. FDA reviewer for getting the approval; they should also be presentable and well-organized, without being cluttered or confusing.

Professional trainings for preparing premarket submissions that win regulatory approval

Given all these, it goes without saying that a completely thorough understanding and knowledge of the relevant U.S. FDA laws, regulations and requirements is absolutely necessary for regulatory professionals. This in-depth understanding can be had only from thorough training, which is indispensable if the medical device company is to win a clearance or approval.

The ways by which to do this is the core learning a two-day seminar from GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for the regulatory compliance areas, will impart. The Director of this seminar is Subhash Patel, a very senior regulatory professional and founder of New Jersey-based MD Reg Consulting LLC, which serves medical device industry clients in all aspects of global regulatory affairs specific to their needs.

To enroll for this highly valuable training session on how to successfully prepare 510(k)/Pre-IDE/IDE and PMA premarket submissions that secure clearances and approvals from the FDA, please register for this seminar by visiting http://www.globalcompliancepanel.com/control/globalseminars/~product_id=900776SEMINAR?wordpress-SEO .  This seminar has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

The grasp needed for preparing premarket submission that win regulatory approval

At this seminar, Patel will demonstrate the grasp that regulatory professionals in the medical devices industry need for working with the FDA officials during the review and approval process of their submission. He will offer a complete understanding of the major aspects of FDA premarket submissions.

While knowledge of the regulatory process is one thing; medical device companies also need to know how to set and state regulatory arguments for their device in a most convincing manner to the FDA reviewer. This knowledge will be part of this course. In the process of explaining how to prepare premarket submissions that win regulatory approval; Patel will also offer tips and suggestions to participants on how to work effectively with the U.S. FDA officials during review and approval process of their submission.

During the course of these two days, Patel will cover the following core elements of how to prepare premarket submissions. He will explain the following:

o  History and background of U.S FDA Laws and Regulations

o  Classify Your Device

o  Choose the Correct Premarket Submission for your device

o  Compile the Appropriate Information for your Premarket Submission

o  Author and Prepare your Premarket Submission

o  Submit your Premarket Submission to the FDA

o  Interact with FDA Staff during Review and Approval

o  Complete the Establishment Registration and Device Listing
