Latest MODA™ Software Release from Lonza Enables Companies to Meet Updated Regulatory Guidance
News Oct 26, 2017
QC facilities have to manage the daily challenges of QC monitoring while meeting changing regulatory compliance mandates. Lonza's latest software release meets these evolving challenges with additional features focusing on data integrity, data visibility and data review.
MODA™ Version 3.3 delivers improved workflow with better analytics and reporting than ever before. Complete with a streamlined implementation and a risk-based validation solution, this software is the paperless solution for QC laboratories.
“It is essential for QC laboratories to be able to readily adapt to changing regulatory guidance. To aid this compliance MODA™ Version 3.3 features a new, fully searchable audit trail that lets scientists easily track changes made through a sample’s lifecycle,” said Sinéad Cowman, EU Business Development Manager for Lonza Informatics. “The paperless efficiency features save time on many everyday activities, such as settling plate exposure times, organism identification and master data management and review.”
The new software has been designed to meet end user requirements and features enhanced scheduling and calendar capabilities for simplified sample management. It also offers web-based dashboards so that metrics and results can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. Scientists in QC laboratories are also supported with a validation documentation package that meets current industry standards and regulatory requirements, with execution and pre-validated service options available.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Researchers Move Closer to Completely Optical Artificial Neural NetworkNews
Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.
