These are days of increased pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency, productivity and quality for laboratory operations all over the world, from large enterprise facilities to small analytical services centers. It's a multifaceted challenge that demands many diverse and sometimes conflicting needs to be fulfilled, such as
There are so many variables in the equation that allocating your budget to the newest, fastest and most efficient instrument is unlikely to be the solution for the real bottlenecks of your process flow. The industry leader in laboratory workflow and process optimization, LABVANTAGE provides the expertise required to eliminate the inefficiencies in your laboratory and optimizes your business processes.
In nearly three decades of presence in the market, LABVANTAGE has accumulated unparalleled experience in laboratory workflows of a variety of industry segments. We deeply understand your industry and recognize that although extremely important, LIMS is only a part of the solution to your laboratory process improvement needs.
The most wisely designed LIMS system cannot ensure that physical samples are analyzed before they start deteriorating; it may track the incoming sample rate but won't explain sudden and apparently unpredictable surges of samples hitting your laboratory and causing stress to staff and instrumentation. It will store your standard operating procedures (SOPs) but it won't write them for you; it will interface nicely with a liquid handling device, but it won't devise a plan to automate sample handling in your laboratory in order to boost throughput.
While LABVANTAGE can provide you with a well-designed LIMS, you need experts that know what happens to physical samples before, during and after their existence as database records.
LABVANTAGE can provide you with that expertise too.
LABVANTAGE's approach to workflow redesign is based on the principles of Lean Six Sigma. LABVANTAGE will guide you throughout this process to drive your laboratory towards streamlined and efficient workflows, establishing quality procedures to facilitate the achievement of laboratory accreditations.
The typical process improvement cycle goes through the following phases:
