Abbott Informatics’ STARLIMS helps ensure data integrity because of its ability to trace the processes associated to a batch or sample, combined with secure sample management capability, electronic signatures, chain of custody, audit trail, and instrument integration. These features all decrease the probability of human error and unauthorized data revisions. Thus, the data generated by a laboratory is entirely traceable, highly-reliable, and secure.
From development to manufacturing, STARLIMS is an intelligent platform that supports the Quality by Design (QbD) concept. A systematic development approach, QbD starts with predetermined objectives, emphasizing product comprehension and process control and revolving around proven scientific concepts and quality risk management.
Within QA/QC settings, laboratory personnel may take the initiative in the prevention of revisions to product consistency through the study of process control and trending charts produced in STARLIMS, which will enable the identification of anomalies that may affect the processes of manufacturing and testing.
Coordinating a LIMS to work with a SDMS (scientific data management system) and ELN (electronic laboratory notebook) solutions will greatly decrease the probability of mistakes that result from manually transferred data. In addition, there will be improved adherence to SOPs (standard operating procedures) throughout an entire laboratory workflow or process. The implementation of an ELN to record and report data will allow for electronic orchestration at the front end as well as accurate and trustworthy recording at the back end.
STARLIMS Integrated Solution
Implementing state-of-the art technology, STARLIMS provides a totally integrated solution that incorporates LIMS, Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), Scientific Data Management System (SDMS), Advanced Analytics, and Mobile within a single application. This LIMS innovation makes building and maintaining custom interfaces required by third party tools unnecessary, eliminating the need for complex interfacing and integration and significantly decreasing total cost of ownership.
