Introducing Starlims QM 12.1

July 16, 2020

We are pleased to announce the Starlims Quality Manufacturing Solution QM12.1 release, which is built on the latest Starlims Technology Platform v12.0.

The features included in Starlims Quality Manufacturing Solution QM12.1 are:

  • Enhancements to the Request Management Portal which includes multi-sample request for a material, sample meta data, and the ability to print sample labels.
  • Enhancement to default lifecycles to allow un-cancelling a test with a configurable electronic signature.
  • Enhancements to sample group templates to enforce unique sample group template names.
  • Enhancements to the Bypass ELN functionality, requesting a confirmation or a configurable electronic signature before the action takes place.
  • Bug fixes.

The Request Management Portal is fully integrated within the Starlims Quality Manufacturing Solution and provides a point of collaboration between our customers and their clients. It allows clients to submit material test requests and provides real time visibility for both parties of the request status as well as detailed results of the testing performed.

The enhancement allows our customers’ clients to include multiple materials within a request and associate multiple samples for each material. These samples could have different testing profiles, descriptions and container information.

Metadata templates allow for additional information to be associated with the sample without the need of customizations. Our customers will be able to configure a default metadata template at the material sample level which will be available when their client creates a request.

Furthermore, our customers’ clients will be able to print labels for each sample within the request. When the processing labs receive the physical samples, they will be able to quickly associate the samples with the respective projects to be processed. The labels for the samples coming from requests are completely configurable.

Additionally, enhancements have been included to allow authorized users to revert tests that have been cancelled by error and to re-instate them. An electronic signature will be recorded as part of the transaction.
