Software Offer - Improve your Analytical Quality Control and Performance Monitoring

CSols AqcTools

AqcTools for Interactive Charting & Statistical Analysis of QC Samples

CSols Laboratory Informatics solutions are enabling our clients to make big savings in laboratory costs, improved turnaround times and analytical throughput as well as to improve results quality to meet or exceed regulatory requirements. Now you can further improve your analytical performance using our industry leading AqcTools quality control software. AqcTools helps you monitor and improve your analytical performance through the routine statistical analysis and charting of your internal or external Quality Control Samples and the automatic monitoring of rule exceptions.

The specification, development, validation and rollout of AqcTools was carried out in conjunction with major Water, Environmental, Analytical Services and Mining companies. Users required a very scalable solution - from a standalone PC to multiuser systems that could be applied across the enterprise. Data security was paramount, as was the need to gather or share data from other systems. However, the two most fundamental requirements were that it should provide exactly the functionality that the laboratories needed whilst meeting all immediate and future regulatory demands.

AqcTools, running on either Oracle or MS SQL Server, has been implemented in laboratories of all sizes and can be run stand alone or can be interfaced to fully complement the capabilities of a LIMS system. AqcTools can also be used with all of your historical data and with other resources such as Quality Analyst, instrumentation and laboratory personnel.

The software is easily self-installable. CSols can also assist with remote installations and can help with linking to LIMS or taking data directly from instruments, installing onto a server for sharing across users and setting up templates for results entry or training.

AqcTools software supports

  • a range of Flexible options for changes to chart limits with full secure access
  • exporting processed data for use in your favourite Excel spreadsheets or other external packages
  • importing historical data such as Excel or Quality Analyst files
  • the manual entry of results data e.g. from low volume testing or from non-analytical instrument techniques
  • the creation and management of exception reports for regulatory authorities

"It's been very useful to actively contribute to the features of the software," says John Watson, Quality Manager at South West Water's Laboratory. "Now we have all the functions and parameters we specifically needed, particularly for trending and reviewing quality control data, which were missing from the general purpose QC software tools that we investigated" 

CSols AqcTools limited price offer: Single user copies for monitoring all instrumental and non-instrumental quality control samples starts at £650* with a 5 user network copy and ½ day of training for only £2999*
