In a word, yes. Laboratories that are subject to auditing ensure compliant results through tight control over their analytical workflows. Using automated laboratory instrumentation, the instruments themselves are selected and installed with care, and their history of use, routine testing, and service is typically tracked in detail.
Accompanying software is monitored with similar rigor to verify that it meets regulations concerning the completeness and security of data records, as well as fulfilling other applicable requirements: e.g., restricting users' access to an assigned set of devices and/or methods.
METTLER TOLEDO supports compliance by offering guidance on instrument choice, installation location, and setup, as well as appropriate service packages. We also provide traceable weights and certified reference substances for routine testing, modular software packages that secure data and accommodate new processes, and SOP creation that can help reinforce results quality.
