Data Integrity Matters | What do you do with Orphan Data Created during Data Acquisition?

By July 19, 2018

Halting a chromatographic analysis where the system is not performing correctly or when another error is evident in the separation is a valuable and scientific way to avoid creating unusable data that needs to be subsequently invalidated following a defined analytical lab error/result SOP. But what do you do with that orphan data?
