Integrating Laboratory Instruments with Waters Empower 3

Waters Empower 3 is continuously upgraded to meet the changing needs of laboratories across all industries. Each new feature release of Empower 3 contains new functionality that is built upon feedback and customer input from these sectors and could thus bring significant benefits to the Laboratory user.

Tips for Upgrading Your Waters Empower 3 System

Empower 3 software enables your organization to effectively manage data generated by all your chromatography instrumentation, plus run different detection techniques and applications, method development and validation, integrated chemical structures, and polymer analysis. As discussed in this blog, upgrading Empower is a great way to improve your overall laboratory informatics ecosystem, but there are a number of best practice recommendations that are important to follow in order to maximize the benefits of the upgrade for your organization.

Tips on Implementing, Maintaining and Validating Empower 3 Software Custom Fields to Maximize Data Integrity

Custom fields are a great tool to minimize any Data Integrity concerns that transcribing data into external systems poses, while at the same time providing huge gains in operational efficiency. By following the best practice recommendations described in this blog, the development and validation of Custom Fields can be done quickly, resulting in a process that is much less time-consuming, more accurate, less prone to errors, easily traceable and more user-friendly.

Best Practices for Integrating LIMS with Empower

As discussed in this blog, integrating Empower and a LIMS is a great way to improve your overall laboratory informatics ecosystem, but there are a number of best practice recommendations that are important to follow in order to maximize the benefits of the integration for your organization.

Tips for Implementing and Validating NuGenesis SDMS File Capture Templates

NuGenesis LMS has the potential to generate significant business value by improving laboratory productivity and efficiency. In this blog, we discuss the best practices associated with implementing and validating NuGenesis SDMS File Capture to help you realize this potential.

Case Studies

Astrix Case Study: Waters Empower Custom Fields Development and Validation

In order to support its growing product line, one of the world’s fastest-growing pharmaceutical compa­nies with an established commercial presence in over 100 different countries engaged Astrix to assist with the development and validation of Waters Empower Chromatography Data System (CDS) custom fields. Over 160 custom fields and 200 reports needed to be developed and validated.

The Astrix Impact:

Astrix’s approach on this project was to develop a framework for the development and validation of custom fields that the cus­tomer could utilize effectively and efficiently for future development and validation efforts.

  • Created a process that facilitated proper documentation of custom fields and reports creation and 23 custom fields that would require minimum user inputs and in a generic format that could be re-used in different products/projects.
  • Designed 10 “all in one” reports for the cus­tomer. These reports hold all the information required by the test method (i.e., Standard Summary, Recovery, System Suitability, Sample Results, etc.).
  • Developed and executed validation SOPs, test scripts, templates, traceability matrix etc. to properly create, document and test new custom calculation formulas to assure they generate the expected results.
  • Established a traceability matrix that allowed users to locate and reuse validation documentation for custom calculations that had previously been validated.
  • Trained the customer team on new protocols for using Empower, and all aspects of development, validation and use of custom fields and reports.

  • Benefits of having all chromatography related calculations within Empower CDS

How to Maximize NuGenesis SDMS as your Central Location for Analytical Data

Modern analytical laboratories have experienced massive growth in data volumes over the last decade. In order to meet the challenge of turning this data into knowledge, laboratories are looking to automate and integrate laboratory operations and processes as much as possible in order to enhance data integrity and provide digital continuity throughout the product lifecycle. In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What is SDMS and how it can simplify your data management and distribution burden.
  • Things to consider when implementing NuGenesis SDMS.
  • Consolidation of data from multiple silos into centralized location and its advantages.
  • NuGenesis SDMS data reuse and distribution possibilities.
