A lot of pharmaceutical professionals are having a big confusion among calibration, validation and qualification, hence I am trying to washout the confusion. I think it will make a clear image about these three concepts and their definitions.
The set of operations that establish, under specified conditions, the relationship between values indicated by an instrument or system for measuring (for example, weight, temperature and pH), recording, and controlling, or the values represented by a material measure, and the corresponding known values of a reference standard. Limits for acceptance of the results of measuring should be established. Always remember any reference standard is always used in calibration.
