Laboratory information management system reduces total cost of ownership
The Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite has been expanded with the addition of the Accelrys Laboratory Information
Management System (LIMS). This system uses a process-driven approach, which focuses on laboratory, quality-control, and manufacturing
processes, in contrast to the sample-driven approach used by traditional LIMS. This process-driven approach enables organizations
to achieve repeatability and consistency of procedures, automatically qualify operational changes, and maintain a lower total
cost of ownership. The Accelrys LIMS integrates with Accelrys Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), Accelrys Laboratory Execution
System (LES), Accelrys Electronic Batch Records (EBR), Accelrys Discoverant process management informatics, and the Accelrys
Enterprise Platform (AEP) for data exchange to provide an end-to-end informatics system that makes data accessible across
ID and label-verification software enables serialization
Cognex Corporation released its new version of the In-Sight Track & Trace identification- and data-verification solution for
healthcare serialization. This version includes enhancements that address additional requirements for pharmaceutical and medical-device
manufacturers to achieve unit-level product traceability.
In-Sight Track & Trace 2.0 can be used with multiple networked In-Sight vision systems to decode human-readable text along
with 2-D and 1-D barcodes, including Data Matrix, GS1-128, GS1 DataBar, securPharm, and Pharmacode. Its pre-programmed add-on
software package needs little set up through a touch screen or HMI. In-Sight Track & Trace can be easily integrated into third-party
serialization software or MES with industrial protocol support and built-in I/O controls. The technical controls needed for
FDA 21 CFR Part 11 validation, including secure user authentication and automatic audit trail generation, are also included.
Software streamlines compliance and quality management
GXPi has unveiled X-forms as the latest extension to its electronic document management platform (EDM) X-docs. The X-forms
interface is designed to manage, track, and resolve quality issues for the life-sciences industry. The product comes complete
with functionality to facilitate several quality processes, including change control, CAPA and deviation management, audit
management, and other client-driven, quality process-related configurations.
The X-docs platform was developed to streamline compliance processes to deliver both ergonomic functionality and long-term
cost savings. Following installation to X-docs, X-forms can then be tailored to meet a range of specific business processes
in the quality related space, and also provide the ability to add further modules as clients grow, all on the same, familiar
Mass spectrometer offers qualitative and quantitative analysis with user-friendly capabilities
Bruker's COMPACT LC-QqTOF mass spectrometer achieves sensitivity levels normally associated with triple-quadrupole instruments
while delivering research grade, high-resolution full-scan data even high UHPLC speeds.
The COMPACT system features 10-bit ADC detection technology and gains a 3–4 times higher dynamic range during real LC timescales.
The system also features productivity gains by increased robustness to sample variation, allowing reduced sample pretreatment
especially intended for high-throughput, quantitative applications. The new technology also provides 50-GBit/sec sampling
speed, and new autoMSMS acquisitions, which react in real time to optimize acquisition parameters to the incident sample.
