Rising costs of research, lower budgets and reduced headcount requires laboratories to make "smart" decisions about which research projects to fund with a "kill early" mentality. Research and development laboratories tend to have a different emphasis compared to facilities focused on the quality control/quality assurance process. The key differences center around the total number of procedures that can be utilized, and the fact that work is never routine which puts an emphasis on flexibility. In spite of this requirement for flexibility, successful companies realize that intellectual property needs to be protected, thereby necessitating data to be safely captured and stored.
No longer will a paper-based notebook and data stored on a researcher's computer suffice. LABVANTAGE provides a centralized repository that efficiently gathers data from users, instruments, interfaces and other sources, and makes the information available across the enterprise. With the ability to make real-time, informed decisions (e.g., elimination of duplicate experimentation), researchers can identify and elevate promising targets, while eliminating non-viable candidates as early in the process as possible.
LABVANTAGE helps research and development laboratories successfully deploy an informatics solution that enables quick changes to system architecture, user administration, business process automation and user interface. This results in less resources spent on configuring the system and more time spent being productive. Moreover, by enabling you to jump-start custom screen creation, you are empowered to freely add and modify the database tables and columns without relying on the help of database administrators or programmers.
Using automated workflows eliminates bottlenecks resulting from following paper-based standard operating procedures (SOPs). Wizard-style on-screen workflows simplify user training, SOP adoption, and automate business processes that reduce costs and streamline operations. LABVANTAGE can graphically display client workflows and decision processes using preconfigured or customized workflow resources and tasks.
LABVANTAGE provides a powerful, low-cost, low-maintenance informatics platform for today's competitive laboratory environment. From supporting complete plate management, integration of cherry picking, transferring and loading, well genealogy, to multidimensional arrays, our solution helps you achieve the desired operational efficiency while staying complete compliant with 21 CFR Part 11, HIPAA and other industry and international regulations.
