LIMS Testing

Increase Application Quality

Accelerate Time-to-Market

Minimize Testing Costs

SQA Solution’s consultants have proven expertise in testing of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) applications helping Life Science organizations build software solutions that deliver extensive out-of-the-box pharmaceutical functionality, significantly reducing amount of time it takes to implement and validate LIMS. Our solutions also help increase user acceptance and simplify future system upgrades. LIMS supports laboratory operations such as managing data, samples, lab users, instruments and other resources and are increasingly important as these systems become the main source of records for a lab’s work. As users become critically dependent on these systems, instead of paper based records, any failure can interrupt daily operations. At SQA Solution, we know that it is vitally important to have a validation sound approach ensuring that adequate preparation for potential inspections has taken place and that these systems are reliable enough for continued operations in the laboratory. We can help you validate your LIMS software.

  • Testing earlier, smarter, and faster – Increase your application quality by inserting SQA Solution’s experienced Functional Testing resources throughout your application development cycle.
  • Finding critical issues earlier – Accelerate your Time-to-Market by preventing delays that are caused by issues found late. Bugs detected and fixed early are less expensive and keep your project quality up and costs down.

Creating Solutions

If your application hasn’t been tested by SQA Solution, you can’t be sure it’s ready for primetime. Our Quality Assurance services can be leveraged in multiple ways from On-Demand to fully manage outsource solutions, depending on your needs. Our LIMS validation solution may encompass:

  • Master Validation Plan – the user’s company is responsible for the production of this document, which includes design and testing needs as well as a detailed validation plan.
  • Quality Audit of the Supplier – your company typically visits Autoscribe to ensure that the products we provide meet standards.
  • Installation Qualification (IQ) – the user company must validate the installation of the infrastructure hardware and software, Autoscribe outlines instructions for the correct installation of the system, but the IQ looks at version control, security, interfaces to other systems, and the system’s impact on other solutions.
  • Operational Qualification (OQ) – typically the longest element of the validation, the OQ verifies that each feature and function of the LIMS operates to the standard outlined in the manufacturing requirements or specifications.
  • Performance / Process Qualification (PQ) – usually done by the user company, the PQ proves the LIMS solution’s operational performance, using the customer’s own SOPs, equipment and methodologies.
  • Training, Support, Maintenance, Backup and Upgrade Procedures – all of these elements must be documented to prove the viability of the solution going forward.
  • Validation Summary Report.
