IVDR Support

The value of IVDR

In the coming months, European labs and clinicians will face significant changes to diagnostic testing. Announced in May of 2017, IVDR (in vitro diagnostic medical device regulation) will be the new regulation for in vitro diagnostic medical devices in Europe. It will replace IVDD (in vitro diagnostic directive) in May 2022. In essence, the European Union is moving from a directive-based system to an approach that now is European regulation.

Advances in testing, technology and international standards were considered in the development of the IVDR regulation, resulting in changes to provide higher quality, safety and reliability of IVD tests.  

The value of IVDR to your lab is clear. Changes brought by the new IVDR regulations will increase patient safety, allowing your lab to work with high-end reagents, further increasing the quality of the results you are delivering.
