Features to ensure data reliability
In environmental fields as well as pharmaceuticals and food production, a variety of regulations and guidelines have been implemented in order to ensure the reliability of measurement data. (In the pharmaceutical industry, these involve GLP/GMP and US FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, while laboratories and calibration agencies are bound by ISO17025 etc.) These regulations target a broad spectrum of areas including experimentation and analysis methodology as well as formulation of inspection and calibration methods for experimental conditions and the instruments used, and the training of required staff. The handling of data management by digital media, an area that has grown explosively in recently years, is also referenced.
Security and integrity are maintained by data system management using TOC-Control V, and the LabSolutions network-compatible analysis data management tool. This protects valuable customer data, and reinforces compatibility with electronic records/electronic signature regulations. (ER/ES: electronic records, electronic signatures.)
