The Introduction contains the following information. It also contains an complete list of data files associated with the different documents described below.
A Process Verification and Qualification Development Report
Details the theoretical foundations for the method programmed into the software. This document provides mathematical formulas used to implement the methods and also details how various quantities are calculated in the program. While not a formal validation document, it does provide example calculations which are compared with published results to illustrate the calculation formulas have been implemented correctly. This document refers to sample data files which are included in the zip file. Both Adobe Acrobat (PDF) and Microsoft Word versions of the report are included. The Microsoft Word version is provided in the event a user wishes to adapt the document or use portions of it for customized applications in their research environments.
An Installation Qualification Protocol
Provides precise instructions for the installation of the ELISA program. This protocol is provided in both Adobe Acrobat (PDF) pdf icon[2 pages] and Microsoft Word word icon[2 pages] versions. The Microsoft Word version may be used to create a specific installation protocol for use in any given research environment.
An Operational Qualification Protocol
Provides a detailed series of steps to confirm the software is installed correctly and that the program is delivering results within acceptable specifications. This protocol is provided in both Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word versions. The Microsoft Word version may be used to create a specific operational protocol for use in any given research environment. The associated files that accompany this protocol are included in the zip file.
A Validation Protocol and Report
Describes the formal validation procedures for the software and reports the results of the validation process. These are the documents that describe the formal validation of the ELISA program. Both Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word versions of the protocol and report are included. The Microsoft Word version is provided in the event a user wishes to adapt the documents or use portions of them for customized applications in their research environments. The associated data files that accompany the report are included in the zip file.
