A Default String is text that you can create in advance and then select from a list when you are required to provide a reason for creating and/or modifying something in Empower, such as a method. This week, we’ll continue our discussion on Validation Protocols and learn how to create Default Strings.
A Validation Protocol defines the tests to be run, the data to be acquired for each test, and the acceptance criteria for each test. In this week’s tip, we will discuss creating validation protocols in Empower.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the power of technology has emerged center stage, keeping the industry connected at a time when many ordinary avenues of communication have been cut off over safety concerns.… Read more >
While the hyphenation of chromatographic and mass spectrometry technologies has revolutionized food contaminant testing laboratories, one major drawback is the potential for the phenomenon of matrix effects. Due to unwanted interactions between the analytes and… Read more >
Every compliant laboratory must conduct validation studies to show that analytical methods generate accurate and reliable data. The Method Validation Manager (MVM) option for Empower organizes and streamlines the entire method validation process, from start to finish.
Bringing increased confidence to sample preparation workflows using automation, smart laboratory tools and electronic documentation for recording analyst activities Consistency, accuracy, compliance and data integrity can each be improved with automation of laboratory processes. We… Read more >
Ensuring consistent system preparation before analysis is important to achieve good system and method performance. In this week’s VLOG, we will demonstrate how automating these procedures are used as control strategies.
Typically, expert staff in a lab will be responsible, along with Quality Assurance, to design and document a standard operating procedure (SOP) for other analysts to follow for routine sample preparation tasks. These procedures are key for repeatability and accuracy… Read more >
Bringing increased confidence to sample preparation workflows using automation, smart laboratory tools and electronic documentation for recording analyst activities Laboratory employees appreciate the importance of traceability in their analytical work, whether to simply check for quality, or for… Read more >
Identifying and tracking compounds by UV only can result in inaccurate peak assignments and the exclusion of potential key compounds that are non-UV absorbing. Learn how the ACQUITY QDa and Empower address these challenges to improve robust method development and method understanding.
