Automated data capture ups efficiency at environmental lab
M.J. Reider, an environmental testing laboratory that performs analytical testing services throughout North America, has implemented an automated data capture system to improve laboratory efficiency. LabCore from P-Wave will automate business processes and the handling of data and documents at its Reading, PA, US location.
According to Barbara Coyle, president of M.J. Reider: 'Automating our data and document collection and storage from various laboratory instruments and systems using LabCore will enable us to greatly improve efficiency and provide our customers with a greater capacity of quality testing services.'
The initial implementation of LabCore will automate the capture of raw data from a number of instruments in the metals and organics departments and allow analysts to quickly review, edit and automate the export of this data into their Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). LabCore will also enable M.J. Reider to automate the creation and delivery of invoices and reports to customers via email.
Mark Ferrero, CEO of P-Wave, stated: 'We are excited to deliver this solution to M.J. Reider as it will have an immediate impact on their laboratory efficiency and profitability by saving many hours of tedious manual labour while improving accuracy. Their laboratory technicians can spend time on more revenue generating activities and can improve turnaround on receivables by automating the delivery of invoices to customers.'
