“I can provide both strategic and ‘nuts and bolts’ tactical advice on all aspects of molecular diagnostics assay development. This can include design control, calibrators and controls, performance and validation studies for analytical and clinical validation and bridging studies. I also can assist with design, testing and validation of algorithms and software for data analysis and diagnostic decisions; comprehensive risk analysis and mitigation for design workflow, process and software risk.”
