Improve food & beverage manufacturing quality with an integrated LIMS software system

Food and beverage manufacturers are racing to be the first to market with innovative products as a result of today's competitive forces. In a global economy with increasingly complex product formulations, packaging options, and regulatory requirements, this race will inevitably result in compromised quality for some manufacturers. How can a CPG company innovate without jeopardizing product quality? The key is to close the quality loop from idea to shelf with an integrated R&D and laboratory solution, which includes a laboratory information management system (LIMS).

Close the product quality loop by integrating LIMS data with bill of material specifications, formulation with a digital twin

A LIMS is a digital tool that has become essential to CPG producers' efforts to achieve efficient, high-quality operations amid today's dynamic market conditions. A LIMS component not only allows you to organize lab work more efficiently, but it also ensures premium product quality. The LIMS component aids the new product development process by performing various trials analyses and ensuring quality in production through on-line and offline testing. As a result, the LIMS component can close the quality loop from concept to shelf during product development, as well as from inbound to outbound once a new product is in production.

Learn how CPG companies can close the quality loop from idea to shelf by establishing a digital twin of the entire manufacturing process, as well as how to improve lab efficiency, shorten the turnaround time, improve real-time management, and provide automated guidance to lab scientists.

Understand the LIMS process flow with the Opcenter Laboratory

An effective LIMS improves CPG product quality by allowing the manufacturer to automate workflows, capture data from instruments, and manage lab data and related information in a simple, quick, and dependable manner. It also makes data and information storage, tracking, and analysis easier over time and across experiments, allowing labs to assess and improve operational efficiency. Finally, it aids SOP compliance by guiding the operator through all test steps through the embedded lab execution system (LES). The Opcenter Laboratory performs all critical quality functions by utilizing several integrated components, all of which work in tandem to support lab activity management.
