"Medical Device Design Verification Testing, Process and Problems"

Over the past 18 months, Max assembled a team for design verification of a new medical diagnostic system (Class II).  During planning, execution and report generation, several process problems were resolved.  The intersection of 21CFR820.30 Design Controls, and other medical device standards provide general guidance, but the devil is indeed in the details.  In this presentation, Max will relate issues experienced and the resolutions developed.  Of particular interest are requirements interpretation, sample size selection, test method validation,  and equipment controls.
