Criterion Edge at the 16th Annual Q1 IVD Clinical and Regulatory Affairs Conference 

At the beginning of the month, Criterion Edge’s Director of IVD & Scientific Writing Services, Dr. Sarah Chavez, alongside the VP of Sales & Marketing, Cheryl VanAllen, represented the company at the 16th Annual Q1 Productions Conference for IVD Clinical and Regulatory Affairs. 

As the regulatory landscape evolves globally, this was an important conference for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) manufacturers and service providers to meet and discuss how to stay ahead of the curve to ensure compliance with new regulations. Criterion Edge discussed the EU IVDR and how it presents a significant challenge for regulatory and clinical affairs professionals in the diagnostic industry, as they must navigate a complex web of regulations across multiple regions, including the EU, UK, Switzerland, Canada, China, and the US. 

At this event, Sarah and Cheryl attended case study presentations and panel discussions that covered the latest global regulatory changes and compliance strategies. They even focused on the growing concerns around cybersecurity breaches and how the diagnostic industry has also had to respond to new regulations aimed at maintaining cybersecurity standards. Overall, the conference offered a unique opportunity for diagnostic regulatory and clinical affairs executives to network and share knowledge, making it a fantastic networking and educational opportunity.
