CD with Interactive Video Training, SOPs, Worksheets and Reference Material

The validation reference text book Validation of Computerized Analytical and Networked System is ideal to get detailed information on why, what and how to validate computer systems in laboratories. Books are very convenient for longer reading of detailed information. However, to get a quick and convenient overview intuitive multimedia training tools are preferred. Such electronic tools have also the advantage that they have enough space to hold back-up and reference material. That's the reason why we have developed this CD ROM as as complementary tool to the text book. It is an ideal training tool and has all the working tools and reference material that is required to quickly implement and back-up your validation work.
