Computer Software Assurance (Validation) Strategy and Consulting Services

The life sciences industry lives and breathes in innovation – nearly every company is looking for the next big thing. But all the breakthrough drug discoveries and technological leaps forward mean little without an computer software assurance (validation) strategy that guarantees a replicable level of quality and efficacy.

Set an assurance strategy that focuses on product quality and patient safety.

Setting an assurance strategy that focuses on how the computer system impacts the product quality and patient safety, and then using a risk-based approach to determine the level of validation required is important. It requires the time, expertise, resources, and that is where we help.


Clarkston’s risk-based approach creates an efficient and compliant assurance process to meet global needs without being overly cumbersome.

A comprehensive computer software assurance strategy incorporates your current state with your future aspirations so that validation is never the roadblock to your larger organizational goals.

While there are technologies that enable validation, it’s the people and processes that will ultimately determine the success of your validation initiatives.

Rather than doing the project for us or to us, Clarkston truly worked with us as part of the team to the conclusion of a successful project.

We helped a recently commercialized biotech establish assurance (validation) and system development life cycle strategies for technology implementation as they prepared to launch new products. For more information on how we can help your company, please contact our assurance expert, Irene Birbeck.
