Reducing The Life Cycle Cost Of Validation (Part 2): Mold Design, Construction, And Protocols

In Part One of this series, we covered important details you should consider during material selection and part design in order to reduce the life cycle cost of validation. Specifically, avoiding customized materials and staying true to the basic principles of good plastic part design are essential for reducing the life cycle cost of validation. In Part Two, we look at best practices for mold design, mold construction, and development of protocols, as these steps of the process also play a vital role in the long-term costs of validation.
