Scientific validity reports based on in-depth literature review

What is Scientific Validity?

Scientific validity is concerned with the association of the analyte of a device with one or more clinical conditions or physiological states (Regulation 2017/746, Art. 2, definition 38). This association is a fundamental factor in the justification process for development and production of IVD devices. 

At Qarad, we offer a service of providing scientific validity reports that follows the procedures as stipulated by the IVD Regulation (Annex XIII, 1.2.1). The service is entirely based on a systematic literature study and involves:

  • Identification and revision of the scientific validity claims in the intended purpose of the IVD device, in collaboration with the customer
  • Systematic search and selection of peer-reviewed literature on each scientific validity claim
  • Critical evaluation of the literature and writing of the scientific validity report
  • Documentation of the systematic literature procedures in three documents:
    • Literature search and selection protocol
    • Literature selection tables
    • Literature search and selection report
  • Revision cycle with the customer to further guarantee that the scientific validity is adequately established
