Laboratory Management

Manage your laboratory resources effectively and improve the performance of your lab.

To remain compliant, companies are required to run their laboratory operations in an efficient and quality-minded manner.

Effective management of workloads and resources is the key to improving efficiency and productivity across your business.

A modern laboratory management system supports the everyday planning, organizing, leading and controlling of tasks and ensures compliance with regulations.

Some of the key challenges faced by a laboratory manager include:

  • Planning and managing daily workloads, ad-hoc sample testing and routine sampling, together with long-term stability or research studies. Additionally, there is typically a need to re-prioritize on-going tasks on a regular basis.
  • Out of stock raw materials or non-availability of overbooked resources (e.g. lack of trained technicians or specific lab instruments), which leads to bottlenecks and production downtime.
  • Inadvertent use of uncalibrated equipment, expired chemicals or wrong vessels, leading to additional costs in terms of scrapped materials or time lost for administrating deviations.
  • Losing time searching for necessary information needed to perform daily work without the proper tools or to manually generate reports, both potentially resulting in loss of employee motivation.

By automating operations, your laboratory can reduce paperwork, increase efficiency and throughput, and facilitate regulatory compliance. Key success factors we help you to achieve, include:

  • Sample handling – Ensure streamlined reception of samples, test assignment and sample tracking.
  • Resource planning — Optimize use of instruments and personnel. Prioritize samples and workloads and maximize workflows.
  • Training records – Ensure only qualified analysts run approved methods using in-service instruments.
  • Instrument management – Minimize downtime by keeping track of instrument calibration and servicing.
  • Stocks and suppliers – Keep track of your inventory. Manage suppliers to drive quality and improve invoicing.
  • Reporting – Ensure data is easily accessible for generating internal and customer reports, and during audits.
  • Data visualization – Visualization tools to monitor and measure performance against key metrics for faster, better-informed business decisions.
An integrated laboratory management solution can help you to achieve important benefits, including:

  • Simplified laboratory management
  • Compliance across all workflow steps (fulfilled ISO 17025)
  • Increased efficiency and throughput
  • More motivated laboratory personnel
  • Cost reductions across your operations

Britt Rahm, Lantmännen Analycen
Before, we were forced to enter lab results at a specific time. Now, we enter results when it suits us. It is also easier to view results, and for relevant parties to examine and comment on them.
