CSols Releases New Version of Preplab Software
CSols is pleased to announce the release of a new release of Preplab software that is designed to help organize and streamline the preparation of samples for further laboratory analysis. It is particularly well suited to the handling of solid samples such as ores, metals, powders, soil and coal. PrepLab like all CSols software, can be configured and customized to suit different settings, including input from barcode / RFID scanners, direct interfacing with devices such as balances or analytical instruments and/or the incorporation of additional labeling. Blanks, QC samples and standards may also be added interactively into the run to suit local Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
PrepLab allows users to record the placement of samples into their respective preparation trays / locations whilst also being able to save the actual run list for direct use by their instrument when performing analysis later. Unlike LIMS, PrepLab allows users to work in an ‘ad hoc’ way, processing samples as they arrive rather than in strict date order. This means analysts can easily add urgent samples, blanks, standards and QCs saving time looking around for samples and ensuring integrity of chain of custody / audit trails.
CSols Preplab solution is making a considerable improvement to routine materials handling for our customers, in particular to:
• easily follow the processing of samples during pre-analytical preparation and processing making it simple for routine users
• ensure unambiguous sample labelling of sample portions for onward use in the laboratory
• provide a single point for transcription free updating of LIMS which in turn ensures synchronization and accelerates instrument processing
