Simplified Validation of HPLC Pump Systems

Consistent and accurate performance is an absolute necessity to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulations regarding installation qualification (IQ), operational qualification (OQ) and performance qualification (PQ) of equipment used in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. An example is high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) pump systems used to identify analytes. The process demands accurate, reproducible column retention time as an analyte is pumped through the HPLC system.

Preventive maintenance is certainly important. In addition, regularly checking and confirming pump flow rate accuracy must be undertaken by periodic performance verification of the HPLC system.  Learn why the FlowCal 5000 digital liquid flowmeter simplifies what otherwise is a complex, time consuming operation.  Check out Bob Sandor’s article in the December 12, 2016, issue of Flow Control magazine.
