Digital Laboratory Transformation Services

SoftFormance is dedicated to helping laboratories, CROs, and R&Ds embrace the power of digital transformation and maximize their potential. From implementing an Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) to building Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), we have digital solutions that will take your laboratory workflows to the next level.

Enhancing Labs with Digitalization

These are the benefits that your laboratory can get if you embrace lab digital transformation.

Agile development

Improved Inventory Management

Digital solutions, such as chemical ERP systems help laboratories manage their supplies and consumables, as well as monitor bulk and warehouse storage conditions more efficiently. Once there’s a shortage of specific reaction ingredients, equipment breakdown, or issues with storage conditions, SmartAlert notifies the responsible employees capable of solving this problem.

Agile development

Recording for All Lab Processes

A digital laboratory journal, such as the one created by PerkinElmer, is a perfect solution for storing data on formulas, reaction methods, lab trial conditions, quality assurance results, Certificates of Analysis, and any lab notes. A highly available, flexible, and shared Electronic Lab Notebook will help the lab team coordinate their effort while working on custom synthesis.

Agile development

Quality Assurance Automation

Quality Assurance is vital for approving formulas and laboratory reaction methods. LIMS solutions help laboratories automate raw material testing, synthesis testing, chemical reaction product testing, and pre-release/sales testing. All data is recorded and the laboratory can generate and print a Certificate of Analysis in the shortest terms.

Agile development

Enhanced Security and Compliance

LIMS solutions help lab managers control all processes by providing them with access to all data on lab processes. This helps managers ensure that all labs are working without employee safety violations and that their custom syntheses are developed in compliance with industry regulations, such as MSDS, ISO9001, and cGMP.

Agile development

Automated Documentation Management

LIMS and other laboratory digitization solutions impact custom synthesis and specialty chemical companies by automating their documentation-related practices. Whether it goes about managing inventory documentation, generating barcodes, or obtaining certificates of analysis, LIMS solutions will save a lot of time and effort.

Agile development

Simple Reporting and Analytics

LIMS solutions often include analytical functionality that allows lab employees to analyze the efficiency of their work. For example, they can get relevant statistics on the success rate of their lab trials. This functionality also helps them generate reports that can be used for obtaining Certificates of Analysis or auditing their chemistry processes.

Agile development

Fast Information Searches

Our laboratory digitization solutions include the integration of a compound search engine that will help you identify crucial information or reaction ingredients in the shortest terms. You can easily find chemical compounds by their sub-structure by researching your own database or getting access to open databases that host all the required information.

Digital Transformation Solutions We Provide

These are some variants of digital transformation solutions that we can build for your custom synthesis laboratory.

Research, Discovery and Advisory

Our specialists research your processes and communicate with your team in order to understand your needs. On the basis of this research we provide advice on whether you should implement the existing laboratory management solution or build lab software from scratch.

Redesign of the existing LIMS and ELN

If you are already using LIMS and ELN solutions but want them to bring you more value, SoftFormance is ready to help. We will thoroughly research your needs and provide upgrades or complete software redesign that will fit your business goals.

Data Migration and Synchronization

We help you achieve interoperability between lab software solutions so that all your data on compounds, reaction methods, and formulas will be stored in a unified format. We also help you manage data more efficiently by migrating it to Chemaxon or RDkit.

ERP System Development

We build flexible enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems that help you manage your active ingredients, lot-related production components, co-products, by-products, recyclable products, and mission-critical equipment more efficiently.

LIMS Development

We will help you build an efficient laboratory information management system (LIMS) so that you will store all your information in one place, get efficient analytics and visualizations, ensure automated auditing, and achieve regulatory compliance.

Electronic Lab Notebook Development

If you need a digital journal to store information on reaction methods, formulas, process manufacturing methods, etc., SoftFormance is ready to help. We will develop a custom Electronic Lab Notebook similar to Perkin Elmer’s solution.

Internet of Lab Things Software Development

SoftFormance is ready to help you build a solution that runs on multiple devices and connects them into a single Internet of Lab Things (IoLT) system that records, stores, and exchanges mission-critical data on your lab trials.

We at SoftFormance serve laboratories operating in different industries.

Custom Synthesis Industry

Our team helps custom synthesis companies ensure great efficiency in their specialty chemicals’ lab trials. With our Electronic Lab Notebooks and LIMS, you will be sure that no piece of crucial data on custom syntheses shall be missed.

Healthcare Industry

Lab trials play a vital role in the healthcare industry, which is governed by a great range of regulations, including HIPAA and GDPR. To run these trials properly and to keep all the related data in one place while maintaining excellent security, you need LIMS or ELN.

Pharmaceutical Industry

An Agilent survey says that 83% of pharma lab leaders want to optimize their current workflows. In addition, the industry is governed by many regulations, such as the FDA. This means that storing and efficiently exchanging all lab trial and process manufacturing data is vital.

Food and Beverage Industry

Governed by FDA and MHRA, the food and beverage industry demands much attention to the quality of products. That’s why digitized laboratories become a one-stop solution for tracking regulation compliance, proving product quality, and auditing.

Scientific Research Industry

If you want to ensure transparency and comply with FAIR principles in your science trials, digital lab transformations is a solution. LIMS, ERP, and ELN software will help your scientific institution or contract research organization automate all processes and store the data securely.

Household Industry

Lab testing helps businesses to ensure that none of the cleaning solvents and household substances is harmful to the consumers. With accurate data processing, analytics, and other LIMS features, testing becomes much more efficient.
