As discussed in Part 1, STARLIMS SDMS V12.2 is a standalone version of the proven STARLIMS Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) that can assist organizations improve their compliance with data integrity regulations.
Serving as the central repository for a laboratory’s document and data files, the STARLIMS SDMS solution eases a user’s ability to access and share data with other team members of an organization. Part 2 will summarize the capabilities of the STARLIMS SDMS.
Management of data from a variety of documents can be performed by an SDMS. It can organize standard operating procedures (SOPs) and certificates of analysis (COAs), as well as the intake of unstructured data from instruments such as GCs, HPLCs, and others.
Technology for parsing and recognition can transform various unstructured files or documents into data that is structured and searchable. Extracting data tables, graphs, and keywords from files eases searches after this process.
SDMS Grabber is designed for monitoring designated locations, and it then automatically gathers and processes new files. Workflows for file approval can then be automatically activated, routing scientific data to predetermined locations based on file types.
A SDMS can automate the approval processes of product specifications, SOPs, and test methods, ensuring the review and approval of documents by the appropriate personnel.
SDMS is designed for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. In addition to record creation, this regulation includes audit trails, data security, data storage in the original format, and electronic signatures. The SDMS can be modified for compliance with archiving, approval process rules, and internal data retention.
SDMS enables users to access document data through a web browser from almost any part of the world. A user can perform searches by free text, keyword, and metadata for finding records or generating search results.
