    I don't think so, but I am told it is a requirement to validate the software every 2 years (mini-validation). I am still searching for answers. :) 

    I'd suggest starting with who recommended a validation every two years.  We've gone many routes over the past couple of decades.  We've done the validation 100% inhouse (a lot of work) and hired people to do all that is allowed for an outside vendor to do (a lot of money).

  2. In this "new" world of ever-increasing job openings, with a hyper fluid pool of applicants, keeping positions filled becomes a little bit harder each day.

    Do you have openings you're trying to fill?

    Are you in the market for a new job opportunity?

    Great news, PathLabTalk now has a specific section for posting Jobs.

    Please consider posting your open positions here: https://www.pathlabtalk.com/forum/index.php?/jobs/

    You can also apply for one of these positions and the person posting the job will receive notification.

    As always, this is provided as a free service.

    Thank you all for your responses. We will be sticking with the Gel Methodology. Nothing in my being wants to switch to solid phase. Just waiting for RFP, because at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter which one I want, but which one is the cheapest.


    Pay now or pay later.  I'd look at the volume of testing you plan to do on it, and the amount of hands on time required.  We have a busy lab and two IH-1000.  Most staff are comfortable running the two by themselves (and in this staffing environment we're all facing - that good :)), some staff like assistance.  

    Reagent cost - lease, reagent rental, outright purchase?


    Responsiveness of the company.

    Annual maintenance requirements?

    So much more to consider than the initial cost.

    Just to throw this in the ring:

    What is the consideration for storing Blood Substitutes on the Ambulances? 

    I have not kept up on this technology, are there any FDA cleared options?
