  • Use flexible reporting functions that meet the complex requirements of and external customers, including production of Certificates of Analysis (COAs)
  • Access an entire sample history, display full audit trails, extract e-signature information, and much more
  • Track and manage analyst training and certifications for tests and methods, and schedule courses and re-certification
  • Create control charts, configure rules to track within the chart, and view the charts throughout the sample and product lifecycle. Automatically detect rule violations which can drive further actions on samples and tests. Advanced SQC and control charting are powered by Northwest Analytics (NWA)

   

Manage An Efficient Sample And Product Lifecycle

  • Automate routine data analysis, sample lifecycle and complex calculations by eliminating the need for time-consuming manual data-entry and non-value added manual processes
  • Configure triggers, sample points, re-sample and re-test workflows. Link to open investigations through the integrated investigation module
  • Generate worksheet/list, result calculations and result specifications comparisons
  • Manage protocols, sample inventory, studies, pulling schedules, conditions and locations for both manufacturing and formulation stability studies
  • Ensure that all scheduled samples are properly collected and tested with the environmental monitoring module and efficiently manage sample points using visual floor plans
  • Create recipes and batches associated with recipes, and test them through standard QM workflows. Download the formulation management application brochure (PDF, 386 KB)for capability details
  • Outsource tasks with third-party (internal or external) laboratories, including an entire lifecycle to allow the shipment of samples to third-party laboratories for testing
