Read Frequently Asked Questions


Why Should You Attend:

FDA is concerned that the distribution of unapproved and uncleared IVD products labeled RUO or IUO, but intended for purposes other than research or investigation (for example, for clinical diagnostic uses), has led, in some cases, to the clinical diagnostic use of products with unproven performance characteristics, and with manufacturing controls that are inadequate to ensure consistent manufacturing of the finished product. Use of such tests for clinical diagnostic purposes may mislead healthcare providers and cause serious adverse health consequences to patients, who are not aware that they are being diagnosed with or treated based on the results of tests with research or investigational products.

This webinar will offer best practices for protecting patients from unauthorized use of RUO and IUO products and conforming to FDA requirements for marketing RUO and IUO products. The course will also highlight distribution practices that are inconsistent with RUO/IUO designations and FDA’s compliance approach among other key discussions.
