How to Bring an IVD to Market Globally

This short course is aimed at those working to develop products in a global regulatory environment. The design process for IVD is similar across different geographical regions. However, the way in which data is formatted, reviewed, and approved varies. This course will walk the audience through each step of the design process and examine how this data can be used to compile submissions to meet local and regional regulatory frameworks.
