Integrating Lab Balances into IT System

Integrating Lab Balances into IT System

The requirement for database storage is gaining prevalence within today’s IT landscape.

The requirement for database storage is gaining prevalence within today’s IT landscape. Databases enable central and secure storage of critical data within an easy integration into different software systems like LIMS or ERP. This article describes the functionality for a flexible connection of any Cubis II Premium Balances from Sartorius to a PostgreSQL Database to help store results, methods, and other settings within a central system. Database storage will offer a variety of features and advantages, especially within regulated environments, to avoid any data integrity violations. Read on to learn more!

Possible Data Integrity Violations

The Cubis has an independent database, which means the database is separated from the application. Different application programs could access the data over a protected interface and don’t have to manage their data within their database to avoid redundancy. Also, an easy exchange of the application software without extensive data migration is possible.

Audit Trail

A database system offers audit trail functionality to track changes when a data record is touched. This is required for GLP and GMP compliance. 

Restriction of Any Unauthorized Access

Not all users of your database system will have the same access privileges. For example, a LIMS may not have read-only access to prevent data manipulation, while the balance has to write privileges to help save newly processed data. Access Security is another requirement of GLP and GMP compliance.

Backup and Recovery Facilities

The database system provides comprehensive functions for recovering data or backing up data.
