LABORATORY INFORMATICS

Implementation Case Studies

LabAnswer has the people, processes and experience that can scale for global enterprise laboratory informatics projects. For one of the world’s largest biopharmaceutical companies, we have assembled a team of skilled laboratory informatics subject matter experts. Client implementation services include project management, systems integration, software development, configuration, deployment, validation, development of SOPs and training.

Systems supported include LIMS, Method Execution ELN, Research ELN, Chromatography Data System, data warehousing, reporting and data archival applications.

Enterprise Implementation of LES/ELN, LIMS, and Chromatography Data System (CDS)

Enterprise implementation of LES/ELN, LIMS, and Chromatography Data System (CDS) for a company with locations in over 40 countries. The deployment included ELN methods and templates, interfaces to both instruments as well as adjacent Enterprise Systems, LIMS with client specific customizations and configurations, third party application interfaces and a custom Product Release Information Management System.

Complex LIMS-SAP Interface Integration

The pharmaceutical client had a single SAP instance and multiple sites, each with its own LIMS instance. Among the objectives were to: reduce lot creation / sampling time, improve lot turn-around time, reduce logging errors, maintain quality data in a single system, and standardize business processes. LabAnswer created and deployed a LIMS-SAP interface using the SAP QM-IDI to achieve the business goals.

Specialty Pharmaceutical Company Leverages LIMS for Scalability

A specialty pharmaceutical client's rapid growth required that processes and systems to manage and review sample test results, release inventory, and manage certificates of analysis be reengineered and automated to support quality control and regulatory compliance. LabAnswer implemented a SQL*LIMS system and integrated into the existing environment to achieve the business goals. The implementation included an interface with the client's JDE Enterprise Resource Planning system and provided the throughput and scalability necessary to insure quality and FDA compliance.

Simplify Result Entry Procedures in Clinical Laboratories

A top ten pharmaceutical client needed to provide its labs with an automated solution to facilitate the transfer of results from Excel spreadsheets into SQL*LIMS.  LabAnswer leveraged existing Excel spreadsheets and produced a versatile, bi-directional interface with SQL*LIMS for a seamless transfer of data without significant changes to the existing process.

LIMS Procurement and Implementation

A government agency client needed to replace three home-grown LIMS applications used by its forensic and regulatory laboratories. LabAnswer performed a comprehensive requirements analysis, generated the RFP, assisted the client in selecting a LIMS vendor then managed the implementation of the new LIMS including installation, testing, documentation, and training.

LIMS to Help Fight AIDS

An international HIV research organization needed to install and validate a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to support clinical studies and global sample inventory in AIDS research.  LabAnswer guided the design, implementation and validation of the LIMS, which facilitated partnering with a tier one pharmaceutical company.

Integration Reduces Transcription Errors

A global pharmaceutical client sought to provide its labs with an automated mechanism to validate and load file-based data directly into the LIMS. In order to provide the level of data validation and error-handling that was required, LabAnswer developed a custom interface that leveraged LabWare's integrated LabStation module and provided a seamless, fast, and safe transfer of laboratory data into the LIMS without direct interaction between lab technicians and the application.
