Most of the current and future issues of data lab management are related to software systems that are unable to provide easily information to the right people at the right time, or/and due to the difficulties to align the data with data from other sources. In addition, the promising lab of the future (IoT, Google Glasses) has yet to come.
Well aware of this, the Allotrope foundation, and more precisely Dr. Gerhard Noelken, Director of informatics at Pfizer and Allotrope Foundation explained during the Paperless Lab Academy event in April 2016 that having an open framework for Laboratory Data can be the solution.
The Allotrope Foundation is an international association of pharmaceutical and biotech companies dedicated to the development of a Laboratory Framework to improve efficiency in data acquisition, archiving, and management processes.
Having a common framework for the lab data implies remarkable improvements:
- Less Manual Document Preparation
- Improved Data Integrity
- Seamless data exchange & with partners & CROs
- Lower Data Management Costs
- Facilitating Regulatory Compliance.
Finally, it would also mean the opportunity to Extract Knowledge & Value from Data in an easy and secure manner.
In a nutshell, The Allotrope Framework supports laboratory progress in Data integrity and Semantic technology by enabling the consistent use of standards & metadata in software development. To learn more about what Allotrope’s open framework initiative can do for you, click on the following link.
