V:KIT overview

V:Kit is a unique, independent qualification system for analytical instruments.

V:Kit 5 packaging photoYears of front-line experience have gone into the development of V:Kit 5, to create a system for qualifying instruments that is practical, flexible, reliable, and quality-driven. V:Kit is also brand-independent – suitable for just about any make of equipment.

V:Kit is used worldwide in analytical laboratories – by global corporations and small labs; metrologists, analysts, and independent service delivery companies. Used correctly, it can aid compliance to regulations issued by international authorities such as FDA (USA), MHRA (UK), IMB (Ireland), etc.

Experience with V:Kit has opened the door to self-validation for many organisations. If you're an in-house service engineer or lab technician, with V:Kit you now have the tools and resources needed to enable you to qualify your own instruments.

V:Kit 5 consists of:

  • Windows-based software
  • Qualification protocols with user configurable tests
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Traceable reference standards with Certificates of Analysis

It has the inherent flexibility to perform the qualification of any piece of equipment, using default protocols or your own/your customers' protocols.

V:Kit delivers controlled and consistent qualification tests for a range of techniques, including: HPLC, GC/GCMS, tablet dissolution, UV/Vis, and the calibration of analytical balances. New qualifications are constantly being created.

Although developed for analytical instrument qualification, V:Kit 5 can be adapted to almost any qualification/verification requirement for equipment that has standard data associated with it.
