Reporting Technology

Our bioanalytical capabilities are supported by Thermo Fisher Watson LIMS™ (laboratory information management system), highly specialized software designed to provide compliance with GLP and 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. Liquent InSight Publisher® applies PDF rendering technology to automatically compile source documents with varying file formats into one seamless publication that is easily added to electronic regulatory submissions. We use NuGenesis™ software for electronic capture of representative chromatography to meet industry guidelines. These technologies support Part 11–compliant data reporting from Watson™ and other software programs.

Robotics

Worldwide Clinical Trials has excellent automated sample and liquid-handling capabilities. These robotic workstations offer parallel processing with the latest feedback technology to ensure a high degree of accuracy and precision. We apply the most current extraction or separation technology and have automated a variety of method-development activities to optimize assays. Methods undergo extensive assessment prior to validation to ensure their success.

  • (5) Tomtec Quadra 4 liquid handling systems
  • (2) Hamilton STAR liquid-handling systems
  • (2) Hamilton STARlet liquid-handling systems
  • (1) Perkin Elmer/Packard Multiprobe II EX liquid-handling system (method optimization)
  • (1) Tecan Freedom Genesis 200 with RoMa (robotic manipulator arm) for 96-well immunocapture
  • Camag DBS-500 for dried blood spot analysis
  • 96-well equilibrium dialysis, ultrafiltration, and ultracentrifugation with liquid handling for protein binding

We stay on the cutting edge of technology to provide the fastest, most accurate results possible.
