Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
METTLER TOLEDO and Porter Lee Corporation announce an integrated solution that will improve workflow and the transfer of weight data in crime and forensics laboratories. LabX Balance Software combined with BEAST, a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and Evidence Management System (EMS), creates a unique solution that provides crime and forensic lab analysts the means to exchange data between laboratory balances and laboratory information management systems.
This solution, called The BEAST LabX Interface, seamlessly integrates BEAST with METTLER TOLEDO's LabX Data Management Software. The combination creates the ability to manage data more efficiently, while saving lab analysts' time and costs in day-to-day laboratory processes when compared to using instruments that are controlled by their own software and that operate independently of any information management systems.
Micro, analytical and precision balances are used for a variety of weighing applications. In many laboratories, they are the basis of virtually every process and an integral part of case management. For the laboratory to meet Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) standards, along with ASCLD and ISO17025, these processes must be perfected and fully checked for accuracy before they can be used routinely. The combined BEAST and LabX package provides a fully-validated system that substantiates the suitability for use and calibration controls. This ability to corroborate measurement accuracy and instrument suitability allows crime and forensics labs to substantiate weight evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.
This solution combines the expertise of two leading companies in the crime/forensic and analytical instrumentation fields. Porter Lee Corporation is one of the leading LIMS providers in the nation for crime and forensics laboratories. METTLER TOLEDO is a worldwide market leader in balances and analytical instruments.
METTLER TOLEDO is a leading global supplier of precision instruments and is the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of weighing instruments for use in laboratory, industrial and food retailing applications. The Company also is a leading supplier of several related analytical and measurement technologies.
