Sasol Embarks on Journey to Digitalize Laboratory Operations with STARLIMS

November 8, 2023

Sasol has transformed lab operations for enhanced productivity and data traceability with the STARLIMS R&D/Quality Manufacturing Informatics Platform.

Sasol, a global chemicals company committed to innovating for a better world, offers a broad, state-of-the art portfolio of specialty and commodity chemicals. Its products are manufactured in facilities spanning across 22 countries and regions and used for a wide range of applications and industries.

In 2018, the development of a new, state-of-the-art laboratory in Nanjing, China prompted Sasol to embark on a digital transformation journey, selecting the STARLIMS R&D/Quality Manufacturing Informatics Platform as its technology of choice. Through Sasol’s work with STARLIMS, Sasol has achieved enhanced productivity, standardized data management, and significantly reduced risks from data errors.

Business Challenges

Prior Prior to adopting the STARLIMS R&D/Quality Manufacturing Informatics Platform, Sasol faced challenges with fragmented, decentralized data. Laboratory managers relied heavily on
manual and paper-based records to manage lab resources, business processes, and quality control. The management model also depended on team members to record and process data, a strategy that quickly became unsustainable during critical moments.
