Authenticity and Traceability
Managing analysis data is a function of a Laboratory Information Management System, (LIMS), which can organize data for validation, traceability, reporting and record retention.
For traceability, nothing is better than a laboratory information management system (LIMS). A LIMS system can be used to automate workflows and can be linked to ERP and MRP system to satisfy the requirements for one up – one down track and trace regulations. Thermo Scientific LIMS can centralize methods into libraries which allow controlled access to methods, data and results. Automated alerts for food quality safety, method performance, laboratory performance and quality of analysis means that any results that fall outside of defined parameters are automatically flagged and operators are alerted to out of tolerance conditions.
Automated chemistry analyzers offer speed and accuracy on authenticity testing e.g. for wine, juice, beer and honey ingredients. The highly sensitive colorimetric and enzymatic assays cover a variety of determinations e.g. for different sugars and organic acids.
