Advanced Storage and Logistics Module for Sapphire
18 December 2006
Labvantage has created the Advanced Storage and Logistics Module for Sapphire (Sapphire ASL). One of the key issues facing companies today is the complexity of managing the increasing number of samples, specimens, reagents, compounds, material, and other items generated or used during laboratory operations. It is important that a solution is able to accurately track item acquisition, location, and disposition with heightened regulatory compliance and through longer storage periods. It must do so across multiple storage facilities and with complete electronic signature records for chain of custody and audit trails. Moreover, the solution needs to facilitate package shipping and receiving associated with each item, providing confident and accurate material handling.
Sapphire ASL addresses these needs to provide the operational efficiency required for short and long-term storage at any organisation. The module is optimised for high volume, batch operations that can involve many items and containers at one time, and can support multiple areas of responsibility within an organisation.
