  • Will save time in preparing the sequences, injection and data handling at the analytical department  and minimize the paper work of checking, review  and approvals.
  • Using the Run acceptance template and sample re-analysis features, higher accuracy and faster judge on the data will be achieved.
  • Integrity of data will be guaranteed where the unknown concentrations will be directly exported to WinNonLin without using an editable documents (Such as excel).
  • Due to the large number of samples and the freezers at PRU, the sample entry features will ease the sample tracking for all samples from receiving until disposal.
  • Preparation for sample labels will be easier since they are automatically generated from the entered design.
