Laboratory Information Management
In CMS, received and manufactured materials that use lot numbers are created with a status of Quar (quarantined).
Quarantined materials may not be sold or used in manufacturing without being fully or provisionally approved.
The test and release of materials are organized by sublot.
Any received or manufactured Sublot may be Approved if all required tests have been performed and passed against that Sublot.
Tests can be specified for a particular item, as well as in a batching recipe.
As your inventory ages, you may also need to retest the Sublot to allow it to continue to be used.
Below are some major features of the LIMS package:
Timed Testing In Package Execution
Final In Process Testing (FIPT)
Tests Results Set Viewer
One place where all of your test specifications and results can be seen by item, lot, etc.
Once there, you are able to sort and group on any field. With that, trends can be detected. Other statistically significant data can also be extracted from this grouping of information.
