Research, exploit and enhance test data

By | News

The management of all interdependent processes, which is the responsibility of a laboratory, is a complex task that requires the implementation of appropriate processes and tools in terms of laboratory data management. This is in order to be able to easily exploit and enhance test data, by setting up indicators to measure results, but also to plan the resources needed to carry out each test. Moreover, the laboratory data management system set up by the company must be able to monitor all processes, from the test request to the obtaining of results.

In fact, these test data exist in huge amounts in laboratories, not to mention the good practice processes to be followed. So, these mountains of data are very often scattered in a myriad of different documents. This raises a problem of standardizing the format of the document, in order to ensure its accessibility to all those who need access.

Also, this retention of knowledge creates a strong devaluation of employees’ missions. According to an IDC survey, knowledge workers spend 44% of their time searching for the relevant information they need but do not find it. When scaled up to the cost of capitalizing resources, this lost time is estimated, on average, at $5,700 per person, per year.
It is therefore clear that the experts’ high value-added missions are only hampered by requests or information searches. Therefore, the sharing of knowledge in an organized network makes it possible to avoid the phenomenon of “corporate amnesia”, this inevitable consequence following the departure of an expert. Also, the profitability of a test data is strictly proportional to the number of tests performed to observe this result. The lack of knowledge sharing often forces companies to run the same test several times, without knowing that the data is already known by other departments.

In addition to this lack of knowledge sharing, it is important for a laboratory to be able to perpetuate the good practices to be implemented. One of the most common solutions is based on operational indicators such as the planning rate, response resources. Finally, it is also a plus that makes it possible to integrate the KPIs of subcontractors, which are used to optimize procurement and inventory management, for example. These good practices can be evaluated by following a validation workflow: simple, fast, formal and above all effective.

The BASSETTI group has opened its office in Munich, Germany.

As announced at the beginning of last year, the diversity of our customers is a source of wealth and encourages us to push back the boundaries. In this effort, we are continuing our international development by opening a new office in Munich!

By getting closer to its customers, BASSETTI offers a proximity work, in contact with local and global issues. The opening of this agency allows us to increase the reactivity of our project teams on site.

And not to mention the fact that the company’s development is progressing so well, with the opening of future branches in Europe and North America, in order to remain in touch with the development of new issues for our customers, particularly in the field of laboratory data management.

ISO 17025 standards: A required conformity!

By | News

ISO 17025, entitled: «General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories», was updated in 2017. This revision, of the 2005 version, takes into account the evolution of technologies. This update incorporates technical developments, vocabulary and IT progress. The importance of compliance for laboratories is to have an international label to attest to the reliability of their results.

Developed by laboratory experts from around the world, the standard is updated to better meet the needs of the laboratories that use it. The primary purpose of harmonizing these practices is, of course, to facilitate international trade. Indeed, the installation of a single approved standard between laboratories in different countries of the world allows the recognition of test results without having to reproduce the test from one country to another. Thus, whatever the type of laboratories (universities, research centres, etc.) or the type of structures (regulatory bodies, inspection bodies, certification bodies, etc.), each of the players can benefit from a similar reference system.
So, what are the main changes to the new ISO 17025:2017 standard?

First of all, an extension of the scope of application, which now includes all laboratory activities.

Then, the process approach of the standard tends towards the conformity and homogenization of all ISO rules (9001, 17000, 15189…) so that it is the processing process itself that is evaluated rather than the description of the tasks that compose it. And similarly, risk-based reasoning brings the different ISO standards closer together in terms of commonalities.
In addition, the evolution in the processing of information and its electronic distribution, ISO 17025 enshrines the use of computer systems and guarantees the results of production, as well as the publication of reports.
