Enhancements to Qualoupe LIMS for contract laboratories

Two Fold Software has introduced specialist enhancements to its Qualoupe LIMS, tailored to deliver significant benefits to contract laboratories. The enhancements to the software have been designed to enable fast and accurate production of invoices, thereby allowing contract laboratories to optimise their cash flow and to efficiently control the recording and storage of results. This enables the contract laboratory to attain and maintain UKAS accreditation, while also managing the quality of services being offered to customers.

The new Qualoupe LIMS gives contract laboratories a competitive edge by featuring flexible reporting capabilities which enable customer specific reports and formats that provide trending and graphical analysis of customer data. Customised data, the company says, is a key factor in helping a contract laboratory to extend its services and build closer relationships with its clients.

The software enhancements also enable customers to submit samples remotely online, saving the contract laboratory's time and allowing the customer to benefit from a faster service by also giving them remote access to sample results if required.

The Qualoupe LIMS features an intuitive, configurable user interface designed to enhance the user experience, revolutionise work flow and remove the complexity of running a LIMS. Qualoupe offers full audit trails and helps to simplify compliance with UKAS, FDA, ISO 17025, MRC, GLP and GMP. The system’s software is optimised to share data across and between an organisation’s sites and supports both manual and automated data capture.
