ScienceSoft’s Customers Say

bioAffinity Technologies hired ScienceSoft to help in the development of its automated data analysis software for detection of lung cancer using flow cytometry.

Our project required a large amount of industry specific methodology and algorithms to be implemented into our new software connected to EHR/LIS systems, which the team handled well. They are reliable, thorough, smart, available, extremely good communicators and very friendly.

During our cooperation, ScienceSoft proved to have vast expertise in the Healthcare and Life Science industries related to the development of desktop software connected to laboratory equipment, a mobile application, and a data analytics platform.

They bring top-quality talents and deep knowledge of IT technologies and approaches in accordance with ISO 13485 and IEC 62304 standards.

Star Star Star Star Star

Working with ScienceSoft was a pleasure from A to Z. Their deep knowledge of the healthcare industry specifics and DICOM standard helped us create the back end of the software for our ultrasound scanner. We are grateful for their can-do attitude, responsiveness, and straightforward communication. RIVANNA already witnessed tangible benefits of our cooperation. We have more projects to come and are looking forward to working with ScienceSoft again.

Frequently Asked Questions About IVD Software Compliance

What documents for IVD software submission to the FDA and IVDR entities do you provide?

From the very beginning of the project, ScienceSoft’s in-house regulatory consultants identify the applicable regulations and help plan the submission to the relevant authorities. Throughout the project, we create project documentation according to ISO 13485, ISO/IEC 82304-1, IEC 62304, GxP, 21 CFR Part 820, and other local requirements. The key documents we prepare are a Technical File (for the EU) and a Design History File, a Device Master Record, and a Device History Record (for the US). If you’d like to see a full list of IVD documentation we provide or have more questions about software compliance, drop us a line.

Do I need to resubmit the IVD software for clearance after modernization?

Yes, it’s a must. All changes to the key IVD software functionality may change the health risks it poses to the patients, so the software should be cleared by the relevant authority. If you’ve already upgraded the IVD software, ScienceSoft can review the documentation to detect and address insufficiencies and, if needed, create the missing files. If we modernize the IVD software, we create all the required documentation in parallel with the development.

What FDA registration pathway suits my project best?

The registration pathway for IVD software to be used in the United States is completely individual and varies from project to project. At the early software design stages, we define the submission strategy and identify the suitable registration pathway: FDA 501 (k), pre-market approval (PMA), or De Novo. Then, ScienceSoft’s team creates project documentation accordingly for smooth clearance and market launch.

How long does it take to get an IVD solution approved by a governmental authority?

In general, the regulatory review takes from 3–6 months. ScienceSoft applies its time-tested project, documentation, risk, security, and quality management approaches to steer clear of any avoidable delays in IVD software submission and clearance.
