E-Labeling/eIFU services

Our E-Labeling and eIFU services enable In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) and Medical Device manufacturers to leave paper Instructions for Use (IFU) out of product packaging and make them accessible for the end-user on the internet!

Why eIFU / E-Labeling is good for you

Save paper and costs

What does your company spend on packaging, paper, printing, logistics and the management of all that?

Start counting because those areas will fuel an easy initial business case for eIFU with Qarad.

Simplify your process

Complexity eats a lot of time and effort.

Paradoxically, we are often too busy to improve. Simplify and take full advantage of the new possibilities that come with our online platform.

Simplify your process

Get the paper out of the lab. Make your documents available on our portal. Easy to find and version controlled.

Because we believe that technology should make your life and your clients’ lives much easier.

Reduce risk

Decrease your liabilities and the chances of product recall related to your IFU.

Qarad’s solution is familiar to that of Notified Bodies. Your eIFU acceptance will be facilitated by Qarad’s integration and validation of your approach.

Comply with regulations

Online document libraries are easy in a non-regulated industry. However, compliance with EU, FDA and other counties’ regulations is playing in a different league.

Qarad’s services meet all the regulatory requirements and that makes the difference.

Qarad's solution

What customers say

Qarad has been very helpful in our recent transition from paper to electronic Instructions For Use. They offer a very professional eIFU service and platform. Changing to eIFU doesn’t only save us cost but it’s also very efficient. And of course it is good for the environment. Every company should basically be doing this. Apart from being very client focused and flexible, the Qarad team has excellent and up to date regulatory knowledge.
