LIMS: A Critical Tool for Food Safety Testing
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL), a leader in Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), continues the 2020 LIMS Webcast Series on Wednesday, October 14th with LIMS: A Critical Tool for Food Safety Testing.
The webcast will focus on the pivotal role of a LIMS in helping food companies combat the challenges faced every day in delivering high quality products. See how a LIMS helps to verify quality by tracking testing on incoming raw material to finished products, as well as environmental monitoring and control checks on the plant floor. Food manufacturers are also under pressure to control costs, generate high quality data, increase production, and adhere to stringent regulatory compliance requirements.
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.
Who Should Attend
Recommended attendees include quality directors, managers, laboratory quality managers and quality analysts in the analytical, food and beverage, agriculture, cannabis, manufacturing (product/material testing) sectors, and at contract laboratories performing food/beverage testing.
