Laboratory Solutions for the food & beverage - Food and Beverage
Food & Beverage Safety and Quality Management: Where does your laboratory rank in the food chain? With critical issues surrounding food quality and safety a primary concern, your laboratory should be at the top. Our software solutions for the food and beverage industry provide your business with the speed it needs to perform analysis quickly, and the tracking and reporting features required in an intensely regulated industry and litigious society.
Our data management solutions focus on allowing our clients to proactively control their processes rather than reacting to failures. Users can configure checks and set limits to meet your company's specifications, whether they are (USDA, FDA, GMP, SOPs, HAACP, HIMP or in-house QA/QC limits). Data can be entered into the LIMS directly from instruments or manually or via tablets (touch screens) or smart phones, thus eliminating manual data entry and facilitating real-time data analysis. Staff can gather data from the production floor, on temperature, pH, weight, size, defects, yield, grading, and AQL (Acceptable Quality Level) checks all on mobile devices that upload data directly to the database. Users can also integrate remote temperature, humidity, pressure and other sensors directly into the system, and set up emailed and cell phone alerts, if limits are exceeded.
Our solutions provide secure, reliable, data collection, alerts, analysis and reporting solutions. Utilizing barcodes (1D or 2D), for sample tracking, instrument integration, and leveraging mobile devices in the plants, real-time alerts, allow our clients to have a total solution to manage and control their operations. Numerous reports can be created and emailed including, COA (Certificates of Analysis), compliance reports, pre-shipment review and many other user defined reports can be created.
Integration with several statistical software packages (SAS JMP or NWA Quality Analyst) allows users to perform more advanced statistical analysis. Our LIMS include built in graphing capabilities for SPC or six sigma, allowing our customers to view trends in there data that they didn't previously know existed. Once data is available for analysis it can be used in investigating corrective action reports, to perform a root cause analysis, understand loss and manage traceability and to creation action plans.
