Risks to a medical device’s performance can occur at any stage of the product lifecycle, as highlighted at the 2015 Risk Management Summit conducted by AAMI.
Life Science companies, which trade in a regulated industry that is essentially risk-conscious, are cautious when assessing an enterprise-wide learning management system (LMS) to ensure that the system adheres to the requirements of EU Annex 11 and 21 CFR Part 11. However, few LMSs provide this functionality at several depths and in certain cases this is not found until after the system is purchased.

Despite the complementary nature of the fluorescence lifetime technique, most users found this unsuitable because of the size, cost and complexity involved to operate the instrument. Although the cost of instruments has reduced considerably, including the size and complexity of operation, before the introduction of the new EasyLife-X system, some users were still wary of using the fluorescence lifetime technique.
In ratio fluorometric experiments a scanning monochromator is useful for investigating intracellular cation concentrations. This article describes the various benefits of using the scanning monochromator.
