Event Overview:

Reducing instrument downtime is a primary task for analytical laboratories seeking to increase productivity. Unplanned or unnecessary consumable replacement is particularly critical, impacting sample throughput and costs of operation. Modern instrumentation and software have evolved to allow analysts to track consumable usage and move to a more efficient way to schedule maintenance. This is possible through a novel chip technology embedded in SMART consumables, enabling automated identification, usage data storage, and logging of operational parameters. Through the second generation of robotic autosamplers this functionality opens the way to error-free and safer operations, while integration in the chromatography data system assures full traceability and GLP/GMP compliance. This webcast will highlight the benefits the SMART technology offers to modern laboratories, especially when facing high or variable sample loads and conditions or instrument usage over multiple shifts.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how SMART technology is implemented in the hardware and software
  • Learn how SMART technology impacts data confidence and instrument uptime
  • Learn how SMART technology and CDS integration support GLP/GMP compliance with full traceability

Who Should Attend:

  • Analytical chemists and lab managers using GC/GC-MS technology
  • Quality laboratory managers
  • GLP/GMP compliant laboratory
