ALCOA is a framework for ensuring data security and data integrity, with the goal of consistently having “quality data.” SciCord follows the ALCOA + model when developing their ELN/LIMS solution to ensure that the data captured is Attributable, Legible, Contemporaneous, Original, Accurate, Complete, Consistent, Enduring, and Available:
In the pharmaceutical industry, maintaining the integrity and authenticity of data is a critical imperative. To meet rigorous quality and compliance standards, pharmaceutical companies have embraced ALCOA, representing a set of principles that ensure data reliability and traceability across drug development and manufacturing processes. ALCOA has become a foundational framework in pharmaceutical data management.
This method’s importance cannot be overstated, as it plays a pivotal role in upholding product quality, patient safety, and regulatory adherence. As pharmaceutical practices evolve to meet emerging challenges, the ALCOA method remains a steadfast ally, helping companies navigate the complex regulatory landscape while prioritizing patient well-being.
The original data records should be preserved.
For any data to be viable, the data should be error-free. If any amendments occur, documents to support the changes must exist.
Don’t take our word for it. We exceed our client’s demands everyday to make their research and discovery process simpler and more efficient.
We have been audited by FDA twice and they had no concerns about the system nor any findings.
This is by far the best value in science software (or anything else in science, really) that we’ve ever experienced. Other solutions in this price range had a fraction of the features, and those with the features cost 3x – 10x more. We’re very happy customers.
In a head to head competition, SciCord was 3x more efficient at documenting a typical work process than [competition]. A complete ‘Assay’ work process required 60 minutes in [competition], while only 20 minutes in SciCord!
