GLP Client & Server
Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a system of management controls for laboratories and research organizations to ensure the consistency and reliability of results. The internationally accepted definition is as follows:
"Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) embodies a set of principles that provides a framework within which laboratory studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and archived. These studies are undertaken to generate data by which the hazards and risks to users, consumers and third parties, including the environment, can be assessed for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, cosmetics, food and feed additives and contaminants, novel foods and biocides. GLP helps assure regulatory authorities that the data submitted are a true reflection of the results obtained during the study and can therefore be relied upon when making risk/safety assessments."
GLP Client features include:
- Securely signed data files to avoid tampering
- A non-editable audit trail recording file operations
- Preservation of raw data
- Single file containing data and audit trail
- Exportable and printable audit trail
- Visual indication of file validity
- Date and time stamping
LabChart application window with GLP Status Bar. Recorded data is seen on the left screen with the GLP Audit Log on the right.
The Sign Document window is where LabChart documents are signed and verified.
GLP Server provides a centralized way to authorize the signing of LabChart files as well as a means to check the validity of the signatures. It determines which users are permitted to create, modify or sign GLP documents.
The Configuration Checklist provides a quick way to check the server and user status.
GLP Server provides:
- Users with authority to sign files upon saving
- Verification of signature validity when files are opened
- Access to remote configuration
- License for an unlimited numbers of users
- The option to merge authorization lists from many sites with "drag and drop" capability
- Extensive and customizable logging
- Underlying configuration file suitable for scripting and automating batch processing tasks
The GLP Configuration Utility allows the system administrator to add, delete or change user privileges.
GLP Installation, Training and Calibration
ADInstruments offers a periodic calibration service for your PowerLab data acquisition unit to confirm the system is working within specifications. Calibration can be organized to match your GLP requirements. An installation service as well as formal training and user certification are also available.
The GLP Client and Server are supplied individually. One GLP Client is required for each PowerLab system. Typically Server software is required for a network.
For information on updating your current versions of GLP Client, Server or LabChart please contact your local ADInstruments representative.
