Skipton, N Yorkshire (16th January 2017) – Broughton Software, the developer of LabHQ LIMS – the leading Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for Quality Control, today announced its collaboration with Mentholatum, the manufacturer of high quality healthcare products and the home of world famous brands including Deep Heat. This had led to the deployment of LabHQ LIMS at their Quality Control laboratory in East Kilbride.

LabHQ LIMS version 4 has been developed with input from Broughton Software’s clients and its network of regulatory, quality and laboratory professionals resulting in a system that is perfectly suited to support the activities of a busy quality control laboratory. 

The decision to deploy LabHQ and replace a previous LIMS system was driven by four key requirements – delivery of a validated system, regulatory compliance, accessibility through a web-based system and data security. The system will initially be used to analyse, manage and store Quality Control test data. Future plans include the potential addition of modules to manage stock and stability trials. 

Broughton Software Commercial Director, Andy Mooney commented: “We are pleased to welcome Mentholatum to our growing list of clients. With our background in Quality Control, via our sister company Broughton Laboratories, we are uniquely placed to understand the challenges that Mentholatum are facing. We have worked closely with Tracy and her team to deliver an easy to use LIMS system that will facilitate regulatory data integrity requirements and has been configured to meet Mentholatum’s specific business needs.”

The design of the LabHQ LIMS system means it is very well suited for the Quality Control laboratory and is easily customisable to meet our individual needs.”
