BIOVIA Metrology

Eliminate paper logbooks and automate the management of laboratory equipment

BIOVIA Metrology automates all traditional paper, manual and semi-automated tasks associated with the performance of routine calibration and maintenance workflows for simple and complex instruments requiring routine checks such as:

  • Pipettes
  • High-Performance Liquid Chromatography systems (HPLCs)
  • Balances
  • pH meters
  • Titrators
  • Spectrometers
  • Dissolution testers
  • Hardness testers
  • Air testing devices
  • Particle size analyzers

BIOVIA’s Metrology web-based application provides compliant performance verification and routine calibration of laboratory instruments, equipment and devices supporting inventory management, scheduling, protocol/test method execution, data capture and reporting in lab-to-commercialization operations.

When BIOVIA Metrology is integrated with the BIOVIA Workbook (ELN) and the BIOVIA LES (Lab Execution System), analysts and technicians can view instrument calibration test methods and execute procedures with complete, real-time data capture at each step of the procedure, with data sent directly to the database and all procedure steps time-stamped.

BIOVIA Metrology can be used as a standalone application or it can be integrated with existing ELN or lab execution systems to improve documentation efficiency, ensure compliant procedure documentation and reduce manual transcription errors. It provides an out-of-the-box environment that can be readily configured to meet specific needs without the extensive and expensive modifications traditionally seen with Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) modules.

Key Capabilities

  • Inventory list and management of all instruments, devices, equipment and parts
  • User-defined workflows for each instrument, part or device type with full audit trail history
  • Bar-code labeling of inventory items for easy tracking and tracing; bar code system creates labels detailing workflows, calibration methods and expiration dates for instruments.
  • Calibration and maintenance scheduling and tracking
  • Track-and-trace links to calibration weights and standard solutions
  • Comprehensive track-and-trace history with reporting by lab, location, instrument type and calibration due date; dashboards show instruments due for calibration
  • Optional integration with the BIOVIA ELN and BIOVIA LES to verify compliance prior to operator or analyst use (all in real-time)
  • Automatic lookups and insertion of metrology data into ELN and lab execution systems
  • Real-time compliance alerts when using the BIOVIA ELN and BIOVIA LES

Productivity and Compliance Benefits

  • Eliminate paper-based log books and data binders. No more paperwork!
  • Reduce workload required for procedure execution, data capture and reporting of instrument calibration information in compliant lab-to-plant operations.
  • Ensure data integrity with all data captured “direct to database,” a requirement for compliant operation.
  • Remove risk of human error in quality assessment operations with automated and validated calculations and reports.
  • Improve compliance by submitting all procedure-based calibration or verification workflow tasks for real-time execution by analysts/operators.
  • Easily extend the system to support SOP-based tasks like standards/reagent preparation procedures and other test methods required for periodic evaluations.
