Scientific innovation in today’s biopharmaceutical companies relies heavily on their ability to effectively manage big data across their organization, globally. The trend towards outsourcing vast amounts of work to contract research organizations (CRO’s) ...
This highly anticipated release is a major step forward in the modernization of STARLIMS. Due to the unique design of STARLIMS, the Technology Platform can be upgraded independently of the business applications within your system.
During a 2011 review of medical device quality data, the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) noticed a variety of widespread manufacturing risks that were impacting product quality. A few of these risks included...
With an integrated LIMS system, labs can save and manage large amounts of data that is collected from multiple facilities using a cloud-based platform. This data can be accessed real-time across the organization and also integrated with other departments.
OnQ Software announced today that QLIMS will be integrated to ZIFO RnD’s qcKen solution for rapid data migration. qcKen is a data migration service offered by ZIFO Rnd and OnQ Software is proud to be one the LIMS vendors who can now offer this service to it’s customers.
Autoscribe Informatics has released a new veterinary laboratory case study focusing on the benefits that Matrix Gemini LIMS has bought to Scone Equine Hospital. The LIMS is in daily use in the largest equine veterinary practice in Australia.
If your laboratory wants to scale throughput or make clinical breakthroughs, proper data management is critical in order to prevent the friction that will slow your organization down. But no conversation about data is complete without also considering the ontology used. [Read More]
In this 2021 article published in Cosmetics, Jairoun et al. describe the details of reportedly the first study in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) "to measure to what extent topical cannabinoid-based consumer products contain undeclared tetrahydrocannabinol" (THC). Noting a lack of such studies in the U.A.E. as well as other parts of the world, the researchers used gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to analyze 18 cannabinoid-based cosmetics manufactured in the U.S. and E.U. and sold in the U.A.E. to determine their undeclared THC and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) content. After discussing their methodology, materials, and results, the authors conclude that with the discovery of "high levels of undeclared tetrahydrocannabinol" during their study, there is a real need for "cannabinoid-based cosmetic product producers to issue quality certificates ... [and provide] stricter monitoring and control regarding their [products'] safety and quality."
This recorded Lab Informatics Tutorial series is designed as a management level view of laboratory systems and is appropriate for anyone planning, reviewing, or approving the acquisition of laboratory informatics. A background in science is not necessary to follow the presented material. Its purpose is to provide you with an understanding of how these technologies (Laboratory Information Management Systems, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, Scientific Data Management Systems, Laboratory Execution Systems, Instrument Data Systems, and supporting technologies ) can be used to support/improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.
