Labtronics to provide integration of Agilent Technologies network data systems with laboratory information management systems

Oct. 31, 2002
Labtronics Inc. and Agilent Technologies Inc. will develop and market the integration of Labtronics' LimsLinkCDS and Agilent ChemStation Plus networked data systems (NDS).

GUELPH, Canada and PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 31, 2002 -- Labtronics Inc. and Agilent Technologies Inc. will develop and market the integration of Labtronics' LimsLinkCDS and Agilent ChemStation Plus networked data systems (NDS).

LimsLinkCDS provides a secure, bi-directional interface between Agilent ChemStation Plus NDS and any laboratory information management system (LIMS). Users of Agilent ChemStation Plus NDS will now be able to integrate their chromatography data with their enterprises' LIMS safely, securely and in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's ruling on electronic records and signatures (21 CFR Part 11).

The alliance will benefit analytical laboratories in the life sciences field by providing fully compliant solutions for acquisition and management of data, and by integrating with LIMS to ensure regulatory compliance and improve productivity in the drug discovery, development and manufacturing process.

LimsLinkCDS is specifically designed to provide for two-way communication and data transfer between chromatography data systems (CDS) and LIMS. With Agilent ChemStation Plus, this can be accomplished without creating files outside of either application.

Work lists can be uploaded from the LIMS to the Agilent ChemStation base software and sample results can be retrieved from the Agilent ChemStation Plus data organization module (Agilent ChemStore) and delivered directly to the LIMS. By incorporating electronic signatures, 100 levels of password protection, and a full audit trail implementation, LimsLinkCDS provides the level of security and accountability required for compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

The Agilent ChemStation Plus NDS family provides modular software components for instrument control, data acquisition and data management, giving the flexibility to choose a system that meets both the lab's present and future requirements.

The ChemStation base software handles all applications including LC, LC/MS, GC, CE and CE/MS, and can be extended with add-on software modules for data organization and storage, remote control and monitoring, compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11, and validation of analytical methods.
