Lab Testing for Certificate of Analysis

SG Systems is delighted to announce it’s latest software module available for Profession and Enterprise Versions (click here for versions).  The ‘Lab Testing’ Software allows manufacturers of products to perform a configurable set of attribute testing routines (often referred to as LIMS or Laboratory Information Management systems) in order to generate a Certificate of Analysis.

Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

Ensuring compliant formulations and products, V5 Lab Test System forces automatic quarantine of selected finished goods, pending the results from your laboratory testing process.

Standard Functionality

  • Ensures all LIMS testing is performed according to product specification.
  • Co-ordinate the approval of materials where multiple samples and approvals are required.
  • Prevent usage of expired or unapproved materials.
  • Create Certificates of Analysis from test results and store results for easy retrieval.
  • Testing of in process samples (WIP batches), finished goods or pass through raw materials.
  • Customized list of testing parameters, questions and responses.

Lab Testing PC

V5 allows batches to be sampled multiple times (or once), tracks the results and generates a Certificate_Of_Analysis for all your testing parameters.

User Interface

From the main tile menu, a simple user interface presents the user with a choice of produced products and batches which require lab testing.

Once the product is selected for lab testing, the user will be presented with a product image and a selection of questions with Pass / Fail or variable (numeric) input parameters.  Questions can be optional or mandatory

Products may be tested once or multiple times (See Certificate_Of_Analysis_Detailed Report.  The samples average and standard deviation is calculated automatically.  Successfully tested products are released from quarantine (hold) and cleared for shipping.  COA’s are available to print or email and automatically archived.

Hold & Lab Testing Labels

Labels can be printed to identify samples currently in Lab Testing mode with the option to place on hold (auto quarantine) and suspended from shipping.  Several pre-formatted options exist which satisfy the majority of  customer installations.  Data matrix symbology is robust and allows multi directional scanning (perfect for industrial applications).

Printing options exist for direct serial, usb and networked printing (wifi or hardwired) and support existing for ZPL (Zebra), IPL (Intermec) plus FTP printing for use with print servers such as Loftware & Bartender.
