[FREE WHITE PAPER] Practical Guide: Conducting Systematic Literature Reviews in Support of IVDR Readiness

Overview

This white paper is a companion piece to our popular webinar where we break down the steps of the systematic literature review (SLR) process and take a wholistic approach to conducting an In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR)-compliant SLR.

Leveraging published data can help meet global regulatory expectations, fill knowledge gaps, and inform internal decision-making. This applies to IVDR and Medical Device Regulation 2017/745 (MDR) requirements, but for the sake of providing an example, we focus on IVDR here. A methodologically-sound SLR can leverage published data for critical IVDR-required reports (e.g., the Scientific Validity Report, clinical performance). Remember, an SLR is far more than an internet search. It is a clear and robust plan for the identification, retrieval, selection, appraisal, and weighting of published data. SLR has long been the “gold standard” process for evidence-based research, especially in the academic and professional arenas. In today’s regulatory landscape where rigorous methodological SLR principles are now being mandated, adopting a transparent and reproducible process for literature reviews is essential. Every methodologically-sound SLR has 5 clearly defined steps…

[FREE WHITE PAPER] How to Establish the State-of-the-Art Within the Scientific Validity Report

Overview

This white paper is a companion piece to our popular webinar where we cover the state of the art process and how it fits into the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR).

The SVR is a critical component of the IVDR in that it establishes the association of the analyte with the clinical condition or physiological state. Regulators expect manufacturers to demonstrate a thorough clinical evaluation of the IVD in the context of what is generally acknowledged as SOA. To establish that your IVD reflects the current best-practice, you must be able to show how it fits into the entire scientific landscape and explain the circumstances and diagnostic scenarios by which the IVD can be considered SOA. Here, we discuss the critical role of the SVR in establishing SOA as it relates to the overall performance evaluation process.

The SVR is your chance to …

[FREE WEBINAR] Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Click here to watch the recording of this webinar.

This webinar is presented from the point of view of seasoned MDR-compliant CER medical writers. Criterion Edge discusses strategies for the verification of device safety and performance in the clinical evaluation. Next, we teach you how to identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation and define parameters to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk.

Key Takeaways:

Based on the state-of-the-art

  • Identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints (measures/objectives) 
  • Demonstrate that safety and performance objectives are appropriate and clinically relevant 
  • Specify acceptance criteria that are used to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk 

Who Should Watch:

  • Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who develop, write, review or approve Clinical Evaluation Reports for EU MDR submission. Additionally, anyone interested in learning more about MDR requirements for CERs is encouraged to watch as well. Finally, we encourage viewers from the IVD industry as well, as the content is relevant to IVDR requirements, which align closely with MDR.

[FREE WEBINAR] How to Establish the State of the Art Within the Scientific Validity Report

Click here to watch the recording of this webinar.

In this practical presentation, Criterion Edge presents focused strategies on building an IVDR-aligned State of the Art (SOA) section within the Scientific Validity Report (SVR). We also talk about the critical role of the SVR as it relates to the overall performance evaluation process.

Key Takeaways:

  • The foundational role of the SOA in the SVR
  • The required components of the SOA such as the safety and performance objectives
  • The importance of a robust systematic literature review (SLR) to support your SOA

Who Should Watch:

  • Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who are tasked with the development, writing, review or approval of Scientific Validity Reports for EU IVDR submission, or anyone interested in learning more about the SOA section within the SVR.

[FREE WHITE PAPER] State of the Art: Establishing a Solid Foundation For Your PERs to Encourage IVDR Readiness

Overview

This white paper is a companion piece to our popular webinar where we cover the state of the art process and how it fits into the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR).

Manufacturers are expected to demonstrate a thorough clinical evaluation of the IVD in the context of what is generally acknowledged to reflect the most current best-practice science. To establish that your IVD is SOA, you must be able to show how it fits into the entire scientific landscape and explain the circumstances and diagnostic scenarios by which the IVD can be considered SOA.
