    7 Things To Know When Selecting An Electronic Lab Notebook

    Electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) are one of the primary scientific informatics solutions for helping scientists design, execute, analyze and report on experiments—but selecting the right ELN can be a challenge.

  • Quality By Design In Biopharma R&D: Bringing Quality Forward Pays Off
    Quality By Design In Biopharma R&D: Bringing Quality Forward Pays Off

    With biologics filling the pipelines of life sciences companies more than ever, the biopharmaceutical industry needs to rethink its view of quality. Once primarily considered a focus in downstream drug development and manufacturing, quality now demands just as much attention in upstream discovery research.

  • Streamlining Change Control In Today’s Complex Life Sciences Organizations
    Streamlining Change Control In Today’s Complex Life Sciences Organizations

    Change control is collaborative, iterative and labor-intensive. For any specific change event, multiple users are required to follow a prescribed set of tasks and processes, which need to be carried out in a defined sequence and are subject to multiple stages of review and approval. It’s very easy to lose track of where you are in the process, what actions need to be completed next, who owns them, and when they are due. Yet the consequences of such lapses can be very costly. This paper examines why it is absolutely vital for organizations to take a comprehensive, closed-loop approach to automating change management, spanning all areas of the organization and extending throughout the product lifecycle.

    How To Avoid The Top 5 Most Common Mistakes In LIMS Selection

    LIMS Selection is no small task. A laboratory information management system (LIMS) represents a central hub for managing many of the operations in the modern laboratory. Originally, LIMS were designed to be a simple sample tracking tool, enabling systematic control of workflows in regulated environments. Recent years have seen the evolution of LIMS into more of an enterprise resource planning tool that can manage multiple aspects of laboratory informatics – resource management/scheduling, assay data management, data mining, data analysis, case-centric clinical data, and electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) integration.

  • How Hollister Selected An Automated Solution For Tracking Product Registration And CAPA Management
    How Hollister Selected An Automated Solution For Tracking Product Registration And CAPA Management

    In 2008 Hollister did a thorough evaluation of available solutions to automate some key internal business processes including the tracking of product registrations and the management of CAPAs. Since Hollister has to track registrations for its products in many different countries, the Regulatory Affairs department needed an automated solution to track when a registration was coming due so they could submit a new packet to renew a registration. Additionally Hollister needed to upgrade its existing Corrective Actions and Preventative Actions (CAPA) management system that was built on a Lotus Notes platform that was going to be retired.

    It’s Time To Go Electronic In The Lab – Infographic

    The paper-based lab versus the digital lab. The largest barrier to innovation for any lab is performing tasks manually and recording experiment data in paper lab notebooks. Easy-to-use digital applications can increase productivity while reducing wasted time and inefficiencies associated with searching for relevant experiment data.
