Challenges

  • Huge Amount of Data - The real challenge for food safety labs now is the amount of data that they are generating. As analytical techniques have evolved, and instrumentation methods have become more sensitive, you can now process more and more information from a single sample. That kind of information becomes extremely difficult for a lab manager to process and to sift.
  • Brand Image - The big challenge for food processors is not the quality of the food but the brand. If something goes wrong with the food product, the consumer is going to remember it. So it is really critical for the lab to able to get the results to verify that the food is safe to eat, that too within a short time.
  • Regulatory Compliance - Labs now are facing challenges around regulatory compliance. Regulations are changing and the food chain is becoming extended. Labs have to process a particular sample against many regulations as food companies want that product to be shipped to the U.S., consumed in Japan, Europe and so on.
  • Lack of industry-specific technology - One of the biggest challenges in the food industry is the lack of technology that provides solutions for the industry-specific needs. Being one-of-a-kind, the food industry needs solutions designed specifically to deal with its problem. Heavily regulated, this sector requires special approach and highly-configurable and customizable software to meet the challenges.
  • Manual pen-and-paper methods are still in use - Even in the times of the rapid technological development, the food industry relies heavily on the manual pen-and-paper methods. That’s a huge mistake, as most of these methods are outdated and inhibit the processes. They not only waste food technicians’ precious time but also lower their productivity and make their work more difficult.
  • Legal Responsibility - The food industry is one of the most heavily regulated sectors. Constant pressure from regulators, legislators, and business partners for data traceability, access and accountability complicate the production process. Not to mention never-ending bureaucracy.

Labsols LIMS for Food & Beverage

Globalization of the food supply chain is a driving factor behind the increasing number of food safety incidents. Producers and importers must perform precise, real-time product safety testing at all stages of production, processing, and distribution to ensure quality and compliance with food safety legislation. Each step in the food chain has its own challenges.

The food and beverage industry faces increasing regulatory scrutiny, pressures to control costs, and the challenge of maintaining quality throughout a global supply chain. Labsols LIMS understands the impact these issues have on Food & Beverage labs, and offers the LIMS as a solution to aid companies in the delivery and discovery of products, while complying with industry and regulations.

The Solution is customized to the exclusive business process activities of Packaged Food, Agricultural Produce, Animal Feeds, Sea Food, Raw Materials, Pulse, Grains, Alcoholic and Non Alcoholic Drinks, Food Supplements, Meat and Meat Products etc. Management of Analytical Testing on Physical, Chemical, Microbiological, PFA, Pesticide Residue and Toxic parameters can be configured and managed as per the laboratory resources.

Food analysis techniques produce large quantities of different types of data. LIMS automatically gather, store, manage, and report on these data, including sample preparation data, instrument-generated data, standards, reference data for users, and management and metrics reports.

Labsols LIMS are designed to manage and control the quality assurance process, organizing and storing analytical data and facilitating the conversion of data to information. This process is fully automated, ensuring that the majority of sample results will be within acceptable limits, filtering and highlighting failures to initiate follow-up investigation. LIMS workflow schedules analytical work-up for samples with positive results, addressing the need for rapid screening techniques to identify potential contaminants.

Accelerate innovation, expand lab capacity and speed execution with Labsols AI & ML

To keep up with today’s rapidly expanding market demands, lab managers require a full panoramic view. They need to mine insights from historic data, gaining insights from the past and using those insights to see into the future: identifying possible risks and locking in on new opportunities.
