A comprehensive equipment logbook is essential for any laboratory. Auditors expect a complete record of equipment events and a usage log of where and when the equipment was used.
SciCord’s Equipment Logbook solution replaces paper or spreadsheet asset inventories for enhanced tracking and reduced errors.
SciCord leverages a spreadsheet paradigm to offer you the best no-code engine on the market and provide rapid implementations and minimal ongoing overhead. Our customers see at least 30% efficiency improvement.
SciCord provides a comprehensive Equipment Logbook that ensures Check Events and Alerta, Data Integrity, and Error Reduction. A package like this is a must-have or compliant pharmaceutical laboratories.
Equipment can be quickly logged into the system using our predefined equipment types – such as balance, pH meter, etc. These types can be customized or expanded with additional types that are relevant for your lab and capture all of the vital information.
Each type has a predefined set of attributes for things like Asset ID or calibration info. These can be changed based on what data the lab needs to store, to do additional things like keep links to third party asset management systems.
All equipment types also have access to the connection string module (for connecting to IP or Serial instruments and directly reading data) and the Next check module for ensuring that the equipment is not used if there is a pending check (such as for daily balance checks). Direct connection ensures that accurate data is transferred from the piece of equipment to the appropriate location in a workbook.
For equipment that requires more in-depth logging, a specific Equipment logbook document can be assigned to the piece of equipment and base attributes brought in automatically.
Track maintenance events, such as cleaning or calibration, in the equipment logbook document. Upcoming events can be scheduled and then marked as completed as they are performed. If performed by a vendor, certificates can be uploaded as an attachment.
For equipment that needs detailed check event tracking, such as a balance, a dedicated page can be provided to track each day’s check based on specified check weights. This synchronizes with other documents in the system to ensure the equipment can’t be used before it is checked.
The documents where the equipment is used will also be tracked to provide quick usage logs of each instrument.
