Environmental Monitoring - Why Does It Matter?

Microorganisms are found everywhere. This can be in the air and water, on skin and other surfaces.

Return on Investment: Beyond the Regulatory Benefits of LIMS in a QC Lab

Overheard in the ABC Pharmaceuticals QC lab, "He understands the regulatory benefits of LIMS, but my boss also wants to see a tangible return on investment. Help!"

A major driver for implementing LIMS in regulated industries is the increasing focus of the MHRA, FDA & HPRA on the hot topic of data integrity.
