The amount of paperwork that laboratory and Central Quality Assurance Unit (CQAU) staff at Duke University Medical Center had to manage during trials and audits was extremely labour intensive. The CQAU team implemented Q-Pulse, the compliance management solution developed by Ideagen, to manage their compliance needs, which includes equipment, calibration and maintenance records. Q-Pulse also helped the laboratories to respond to any non-conformances from their audits. To further enhance their Q-Pulse system, the CQAU team took advantage of Q-Pulse Docs and Q-Pulse Audit apps - extending the solution to the tablet and helping to reduce their paper load to ease the completion of clinical trials’ specimen testing.
"The really great thing about the apps is that having everything on the tablet allows us to keep it on a clean surface and, if there is any doubt, we can simply wipe it down with ethanol."
