Step 1. Sample Submission

Whether you’re testing a batch of product as a support function to manufacturing or you’re testing multiple batches as a contract laboratory, LabHQ LIMS allows you to submit samples easily. Fields are pre-populated based on the user logged in, client selected, and products available for the client selected. LabHQ LIMS can store your test methods, test schedule, and product specifications in a version controlled system enabling you and your clients to submit samples for testing with ease.

Step 2. Receive and Register Samples

When samples physically arrive to the lab, this stage allows you to reconcile with the submission details ensuring the product, batch numbers, and test schedule were correctly entered. You can also print labels to ensure that each sample displays the appropriate information while it’s being tested or stored waiting for testing.

Step 3. Create Work

So you’ve suited up with lab coat and goggles and you’re ready to go to work. What’s next on the list? You can choose how to organise your work. Do you prefer to do one test on multiple samples, or take one sample through all the testing it requires? Either way, LabHQ LIMS provides you with the flexibility to work however you please. You can group which samples you wish to analyse and prioritise based on turnaround or on a first in first out basis.

Step 4. Enter Results

After completing tests on a sample, entering the results on LabHQ LIMS gives you the opportunity to check the result against the specification. Any out of trend, or out of specification results can be investigated immediately to help achieve turnaround times.

Step 5. Validate Results

Labs operating a quality management system may implement the “four-eyes” rule to checking results. LabHQ LIMS drives an independent review of results before formal approval and reporting. Having another person review your work minimises the number of transcription errors.

Step 6. Approve Results

Once all results are entered for a sample and validated, the sample is then ready for approval. As the final step in the sample lifecycle, approve results is the last check before the results are formally reported. The sample conclusion is then applied as “Complies” or “Does not comply” providing an unambiguous summary of the sample’s testing outcome.

Step 7. Report Results

Generate certificates of analysis or trend reports with one simple click. LabHQ LIMS has made it easier for lab users to generate meaningful reports accurately and quickly providing a professional finish to the sample analysis process. For quality reviews,LabHQ LIMS also provides a suite of system audit trails ensuring that each action is appropriately recorded.Where changes are made the reason is logged against the user, date and time.
