TOC-L Laboratory Total Organic Carbon Analyzers
Standalone or PC-controlled Combustion Analyzers
TOC Control Software, Providing Intuitive Operability and a Wealth of Functions
In environmental fields as well as pharmaceuticals and food production, a variety of regulations and guidelines have been implemented in order to ensure the reliability of measurement data. (In the pharmaceutical industry, these involve GLP/GMP and US FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, while laboratories and calibration agencies are bound by ISO17025 etc.) These regulations target a broad spectrum of areas, including experimentation and analysis methodology, formulation of inspection and calibration methods for experimental conditions and the instruments used, and staff training. The handling of data management by digital media, an area that has grown explosively in recently years, is also referenced.
Security and integrity are maintained by data system management using TOC-Control L/V, and the CLASS-Agent network-compatible analysis data management tool. This protects valuable customer data, and reinforces compatibility with electronic records/electronic signature regulations. (ER/ES: electronic records, electronic signatures.)
Security function settings
With TOC-Control L/V, security can be configured to suit the operational environment. Security-related configurations can be set during installation to deal with issues such as user authentication via ID/password, logs of operating history, and prohibitions on deletion or editing of measured data.
Improper system access is prevented by user authentication via ID/password. In addition, it is possible to set usage rights by function basis for each user.
A record of operations performed by the TOC-Control L/V software and measuring instruments can be maintained automatically. In addition to the dates and user names associated with operations, the details of settings changes as well as instrument operating status can be tracked.
Link with CLASS-Agent Software
When performing analyses, both measurement data and meta data (including calibration curve information, methods, and instrument settings) can be integrated and exported as a data profile. This information can automatically be exported to databases managed by CLASS-Agent, an analysis data management support tool compatible with the Shimadzu network. This makes it possible to integrate management of this data with data from other Shimadzu analysis instruments.
