Workshop Mettler Toledo

Data Governance: Answering the ALCOA-based Data Integrity and Data Quality topics and to the lifecycle of your data

Title:             Global Software Solutions Manager



Presenter´s biography

Gunnar has focused for the past 7 years at Mettler Toledo on Lab workflow guidance (SOP optimization) as well as Data Integrity solutions. Consulting and seminars on Data Integrity is a primary focus of his global software solutions team.


To ensure Data Quality: the SOP steps, calculations, results and records are managed automatically and electronically.
To ensure Data Integrity: complete data must be fully traceable and follow the guidance of ALCOA. Start at the beginning – typically at the balance (all benchtop instruments) – with data integrity and data quality from the source. Self-documenting labs begin on the bench.
The industry trend has changed from efficiency and optimizing processes towards Data Integrity. Now with instrument control software it is possible to achieve both simultaneously – optimize and maximize efficiency in the Lab and achieve data integrity. This workshop will demonstrate the comparison of the cost of a system that supports regulation compliance vs. the cost of non-compliance.

Session Learning

Interact with a live system where the complete raw data/all meta data, is created, maintained and accessible on any system within the lab. A fully functioning system (not theory but a solution that has been installed globally for years using common and current best technology standards) that is designed according to the guidance of ALCOA based regulations.

  • Data Governance: Data integrity and Data Quality from the data source
  • SOP management optimized on a bench top instrument
  • Meta data from the start of the lifecycle to all informatics systems
  • Simplify integrated instruments and software systems
  • Minimize the total cost of ownership of an integrated lab
    • Lower implementation costs
    • Less expensive to validate a complete system vs. each instrument
    • Vendor maintained instrument integration without programming
  • From instrument level software up to LIMS and cloud storage
