Alturas incorporates a custom and powerful integration software system to streamline processes across all functions. ALICE (Alturas Laboratory Interface Communications Equipment) monitors laboratory operations from initial client contact to invoice creation to sample disposition. This interactive database schedules timelines and target dates for data delivery, prompts personnel for the next steps (review, data delivery, report, invoice generation), interfaces with Watson LIMS™, and tracks equipment for maintenance and calibration. This system also tracks metrics including number of samples/unit time and assay failure rate. ALICE organizes project forecasts and provides predictive data for resource planning.
Alturas Analytics utilizes an in-house database application to manage and track chemicals, drugs, standards, and mix solutions. The application is capable of capturing weights from balances and is also utilized for monthly pipette verification. The Holmes (formerly known as CIMS) application complies with GLP and 21 CFR Part 11 regulations as required for use in regulated environment.
