Scope of Work

NEXA’s team of onsite engineers and support staff provided validation services for their new site locations, which involved the validation of:

  • (20) -80oC Freezers
  • (4) Cryocarts
  • (14) LN2 Tanks

NEXA’s equipment testing included Installation Qualification (IQ), Operation Qualification (OQ), and Performance Qualification (PQ).

Our client is now audit ready to verify that the equipment was installed, operates, and performs to the predefined specifications of its intended use. This ensures they are prepared to serve their clients’ cold storage needs in the rapidly growing and maturing cell and gene therapy industry.


NEXA was able to offer paperless validation service through ValGenesis, which provided the following key benefits:

  • Online portal for improved collaboration
  • Reduced review/approval cycle times
  • Digital execution for improved legibility
  • Final qualification package as a single PDF for easy record retention
