Analytical testing laboratories are critical for ensuring product quality and safety. Laboratory analysts and managers frequently interface with a variety of systems that may not be connected. Laboratory systems have slowly been integrated into both business and operation management systems. These complex environments are difficult and expensive to maintain, pose huge training challenges and may negatively impact data integrity.
A modern end-to-end informatics system is an essential consideration for any laboratory that wants to improve operational efficiency and increase sample throughput. Capturing critical data during sample preparation, while guiding the analyst step-by-step, with automated process checks, will reduce errors. Choosing a data system that controls all the chromatography systems in the lab, across multiple vendors, will streamline training and your analyst’s proficiency. Pairing the data system with secure content management will allow you to store, version and sign all your laboratory data, results and reports in one place.
During this webcast we will discuss the benefit of integrated informatics systems and suggest key considerations that will help you make the right decision for your lab.
