Abbott Informatics recently launched STARLIMS Quality Manufacturing Solution QM 11.1, which was designed to increase laboratory efficiency and productivity of manufacturers from a wide range of industries throughout the world.
Utilizing the recently released STARLIMS Technology Platform 11.6, QM 11.1 provides a secure customer portal for the management of test requests, request status, progress, and results. QM 11.1 allows labs to have a holistic and real-time view of request workflow progress. It also features a browser-agnostic request management portal with key automation that decreases manual data input, promoting transparency and regulatory compliance.
The QM 11.1 grid is user-friendly, providing visibility of laboratory test requests from test samples provided by either an internal department or an external commercial client.
Laboratory staff can access a comprehensive and accurate dataset for accepting and processing test requests through QM 11.1’s request form barcoding and automated folder creation features. Clients who log in through the portal are able to view their requests that have been accepted, observe progress, and access certificates of analysis.
QM 11.1 features built-in graphical workflows for five main testing lifecycles: manufacturing, contract laboratories, stability, environmental, and process samples. Intuitive baseline pre-configurations for five typical workflows are provided by landing pages, allowing labs to make adjustments with added steps or fields. In contrast to being forced to review several screens in order to access each workflow page, graphical workflows provide rapid and intuitive navigation to a particular stage with one click.
Upgrades to STARLIMS QM Solution’s Northwest Analytical (NWA) trending and process charts improve the ability of laboratory staff to find methods for increasing laboratory operation and efficiency. Functionality was improved in the STARLIMS Technology Platform 11.6 through upgraded HTML5 infrastructure and conversion tools. This allows the platform to work more easily with diverse third party laboratory instrumentation, with upgraded Advanced Analytics functionality.
