New Software to Control High Throughput Purification Workflows

Jan 27 2006

AstraZeneca has teamed up with software specialists Aitken Scientific Ltd to track samples and control the workflow in a substantial project to increase its high throughput purification capacity at Alderley Park. Philip Jewsbury, project leader, explained: "The aim of the project was to increase the purification throughput by an order of magnitude and we realised that such a target was only achievable with software to control the purification workflow. This would significantly reduce the complexity and stress involved in tracking the large numbers of samples, tubes and vials that are generated during the purification process, allowing the scientists to concentrate on the purifications themselves."

"Purification comprises several steps with up to 5,000 samples at some stage in the process at any particular time. The purification team works flexibly, moving between the different stages, so we needed a tracking software that would control and standardise the workflow and allow anyone to pick up a container, scan the bar code, understand the status of the sample, and be able to continue to the next step in a controlled way."
