Qualify and verify instrument operations
No one can take care of your QIAGEN instrument like we can. The Operational Qualifications (OQ) Service protocol is designed to verify instrument performance adheres to the intended manufacturer specification. Our trained field service engineers will conduct comprehensive testing to ensure that your instrument works as it should, using QIAGEN protocols. We will provide you with the documentation you need to be audit-ready.
Ensure an excellent standard of instrument operations
As a lab manager, you hold your lab to a higher standard as a key to your success. This is why conducting an Operational Qualification (OQ) as a standalone service annually makes sense. This service helps you maintain your instruments according to the highest standard of excellence, ensuring your instrument performance is documented to meet regulatory requirements.

An annual OQ service makes sense

Exercise proactive risk management with your instrumentation for full cost control. Operational qualification is typically conducted with an installation qualification after purchasing a new instrument. However, you will get the most value for money in the long run due to the benefits of conducting an OQ service annually. 

We recommend an OQ service following:

  • Installation (with an IQ)
  • Equipment modification
  • Instrument relocation
  • Annual maintenance
  • Before clinical trials/testing
Be audit-ready with qualified instruments

Be sure you never miss a step in your Quality Management System. With an OQ service using QIAGEN-designed protocols, you can feel confident your instrument performance is documented according to GLP guidelines. Be prepared in advance for any inspection.
