Topics Covered During the Webcast
Food laboratories are faced with increasing operational costs and growing regulatory requirements (FSMA, GFSI, USDA, and HACCP), but still required to deliver timely, affordable, high quality data to ensure that their products and processes are in compliance. Many food companies realize the importance of a sound monitoring plan (based on HACCP) and a solid data management system which includes a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Together, they provide not only sample tracking and specification monitoring, but also inherent real-time alerts to allow for rapid communication and remediation of any issues. We will focus on key reasons why LIMS is critical to a laboratory’s success and the benefits and competitive advantage it brings to food and beverage organizations. During the webcast, you will learn about the following:
- Review of key LIMS functionality designed to meet the needs of food and beverage organizations.
- Key reasons that food companies leverage LIMS in their food safety and compliance strategy.
- Learn about the benefits of instrument integration with LIMS and see an example of significant cost savings in interfacing four VIDAS® instruments.
- Case Study: You will learn how the analytical and microbiology laboratory of one of the world’s largest consumer packaged meat corporations has positioned its LIMS to increase sample throughput with automation while maximizing resources and reducing turnaround time and operational costs. In addition, the LIMS and automation ensure high data quality, availability, and facilitate compliance, in a dynamic regulatory landscape.
