Medical Device RA/QA

Oriel STAT A MATRIX’s life cycle approach to Medical Device Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance (RA/QA) helps you establish systems that will ensure compliance as well as improve efficiency and productivity.

Medical Device RA/QA Consulting

In 1977, FDA chose Oriel STAT A MATRIX to work with the agency to train their investigators in the new draft Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations, the precursor to the current cGMP/Quality System Regulations (QSR). Since then we've been helping life science organizations to integrate compliance activities with performance improvement processes throughout the product life cycle, from initial concept, development, and commercialization through postmarket management.

Our medical device experts can help your company:

Develop a compliant quality system

Get your product to market

Manage your quality system and sustain compliance

Respond to enforcement actions

Improve performance without compromising regulatory compliance

Medical Device RA/QA Training

Oriel STAT A MATRIX offers hundreds of classes on FDA regulatory compliance and medical device-related topics in dozens of cities around the United States and in Costa Rica, as well as Professional Certificate Programs.

We can customize any course for your company and bring it to a location of your choice. For groups of five or more, these on-site classes are a cost-effective, flexible way to train your employees.
