The Leading LIMS for Quality Control

Apr 18 2019 Read 2342 Times

Quality control laboratories are fast-paced environments designed to meet supply chain demands. With many manufacturing organisations operating just-in-time production, it’s important that the quality control laboratory can keep up with the pace. Therefore, using streamlined processes enhanced by electronic data management systems such as LabHQ LIMS, will enable the laboratory to efficiently deliver test results. LabHQ LIMS is the laboratory information management system perfectly designed to optimise the processing of laboratory data. Web accessible, with minimal set-up required and supported by a team of dedicated laboratory software specialists, LabHQ is the perfect LIMS for any quality control laboratory.

Many laboratories choose LabHQ because it is easy to use. Some Lab Managers have the challenge of updating their practices from paper-based or Excel-based processes to LIMS. LabHQ is their preferred solution because the laboratory analysts find the user-interface easy to use and intuitive to facilitate their workflow. Where laboratory analysts are apprehensive with using new technology, LabHQ reduces that fear and barrier to implementation with familiar layouts such as menus and icons displayed in permission-based workflow order.

Maintaining compliant records can be a challenge for laboratories with fast-paced operations. Where turnaround is a key KPI, cutting corners is a risk to compliance for the sake of delivering on-time. Therefore, Lab Managers choose LabHQ to support their needs for implementing and maintaining compliance, and many laboratories that use LabHQ are certified and accredited to standards such as GMP as audited by MHRA and FDA, UKAS ISO 17025 and ISO 9001. There are features of LabHQ that facilitate compliance in a laboratory such as audit trails where each event is logged against a user date and time with a reason for change. Electronic signatures can be activated for those laboratories in higher regulated industries, and permissions can be managed and applied on a user or role level. Workflows can also be customised to enforce independent validation checks on test results or when results are out of specification.

The biggest benefit and the most common reason why Lab Managers choose LabHQ over other LIMS is the simplicity in the ability to implement efficiency improvements through intuitive functionality. For example, specification management allows test results to be automatically checked and flagged when results are out of limits. LabHQ can also be configured to prompt an investigation and prevent users from authorising samples with outstanding investigations. For workload management, the dashboard provides an overview of all outstanding samples in the lab and their current status so that priorities can be easily assessed, and Lab Managers can ensure that turnaround times are met. In addition, efficiency reports can be generated to show the laboratory’s performance within a specified date range on how well the laboratory delivers to agreed turnaround times. Lab Managers can then easily identify and rectify bottlenecks if the laboratory is underperforming.
