LightDeck Diagnostics Earns Certification to ISO 13485:2016 / MDSAP, Affirming Excellence in Company’s Quality Management System
Certification affirms the Company’s Quality Management Systems meets ISO, FDA, and Health Canada Requirements
Boulder, CO. November 20, 2020 – LightDeck Diagnostics announced today the certification of its Quality Management System to ISO 13485:2016 / MDSAP (Medical Device Single Audit Program). This certification is an important milestone, particularly as the Company prepares for commercialization and scales production of the LightDeck COVID-19 Total Antibody Test, its first in vitro diagnostic product.
ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a Quality Management System where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. The MDSAP covers regulatory requirements for the US and Canada through a single audit and opens the door to add geographical regions as business needs require. Certification to ISO 13485:2016 is also the first step in achieving compliance with European regulatory requirements that must be met before sale is permitted.
“On the heels of our Series B fundraise, this certification testifies to our commitment to quality and takes us one step closer to development and commercialization of our in vitro product suite,” explained Chris Myatt, CEO and Founder of LightDeck Diagnostics.“
The audits involved adapting to a mixed on-site and virtual process due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a testament to the flexibility and commitment of the team.
