As regulatory requirements tighten, the need to validate processes and workflows becomes more pressing and with the ever growing litigious nature of analytical results, laboratories need to focus more on “proving” their results. From chain of custody, to sample tracking, to signed and dated log books, the one area that seems to be forgotten is being able to accurately state what is in the sample vial on the instrument. Additionally, vial labeling as it currently exists in most laboratories is error-prone and time-consuming. This combination highlights a critical flaw in data integrity and defensibility of analytical results.
During this webinar, we will look at current ways of labeling vials, and identify techniques that will provide your laboratory with the best options for identification of chromatography sample vials.
Key learning objectives:
- Discover available technologies for vial labeling
- That vial labeling may be the weakest link in data integrity
- Discover techniques to increase data integrity through advances in vial labeling
- Uncover hidden productivity gains through vial labeling
