Analyst Qualification Module:  The Analyst Qualification Module Facilitates qualifying the analysts about their expertise through a system of qualifying tests and comparing results with benchmark values. The benchmark values may be the standard reference values available for the selected product or may be the average of the results produced by an expert analyst in multi-cycle testing of the product. Provision is made for comparing the candidate’s results or even readings with the benchmarked results.

Training Calendar Module: The Training Calendar Module provides for proposals and approvals for training. The subjects could be induction course, basic training / advanced training / refresher course on a product / instrument, or any other subject. Nominations can be made of the prospective trainees and schedules can be proposed. Approved trainees, training courses and schedules will be listed as a calendar.

Instrument Management Module:  The Instrument Management Module facilitates asset management, calibration schedules and records. All instruments and modules will be registered and the calibration schedules will be recorded and monitored for fail-safe implementation. Provision is also available for instrument log keeping.

Columns Management Module: The Columns Management Module enables registration of column application, individual column IDs, column assignment and performance tests.Columns will be subjected to an initial acceptance test based on the performance criteria specified for the assignment. The module also provides for regular usability tests and usage records, column regeneration and reinitiation where acceptable. All re-initiations will be tracked with full details. Unusable columns can be discarded.

Chemicals Management Module:   The Chemicals Management Module enables registration of all chemicals of all forms and grades and individual lots received from time to time. All kinds of consumption, including for reagent preparation, are tracked and stock positions updated instantaneously. It also provides for Inventory control where maxima and minima have been specified at the time of registration, and also alerts about the stock crossing the stock limits. Provision is also made to reconcile the unaccounted / unaccountable consumptions and to close the individual lots.

Reference Standards Module: The Reference Standards Module enables record keeping of the reference standards received and consumed in the laboratory for the sample analysis tasks. The module provides for the registration of each reference standard and the individual lot received under it. Consumption is recorded and stock tracked. Provision is also made for terminating a reference standard when warranted.

Working Standards Module: The Working Standards Module enables preparation of working standards in the laboratory by multi-cycle testing of the concerned product sample. All working standards so prepared in the laboratory are registered and there consumption tracked. Retest schedules are specified and monitored for implementation.

Microbiology Module :The Microbiology Module enables registration of all the reference cultures received in the laboratory along with the relevant particulars. It keeps track of the preparation of the seed cultures and working cultures from the reference culture, by registering each individual culture with a unique reference number.

OOS Module :The OOS Module helps in studies concerning the samples that proved to be out of specifications. The Module provides for registering OOS Templates for the analyst’s checklist and the supervisor’s opinion about the causes that can be attributed to the failure(non-conformity) of a sample. The Templates will be obtainable whenever a sample fails in a test.

Volumetric Solutions Module: The Volumetric Solutions Module takes care of information management regarding the Volumetric Solutions used in the laboratory. It covers Registration, Preparation, Standardization, and Usage of Volumetric Solutions, and Reports.
       Each Volumetric Solution shall be registered by its name and properties to enable identify each uniquely. The composition of each Volumetric Solution is defined and Working Solutions shall be prepared of each Volumetric Solution for day-to-day use. Each Lot shall have a defined validity period, during which it may be standardized more than once. Every usage of every Volumetric Solution shall be recorded. Usage of expired Solutions or Solutions whose standardization has expired may be disallowed. Reports will be generated based on the user defined content and formats.

SAP Interface Module: The SAP Integration Module seeks to work in conjunction with SAP system and to integrate the laboratory transactional information with master information provided by SAP. The module covers re-registering SAP provided particulars of sample types, products, specifications and tests, with or without additional particulars to suit LIMS, and appropriating SAP masters into LIMS, registering SAP Samples into LIMS, monitoring master data changes and their impacts to ensure availability of only the right data for the right task, and generating the relevant reports.
     Once a SAP sample is registered into CaliberLIMS® with all the right particulars, the further course of the sample would be the same as for any other LIMS registered sample.
     The Usage Decision based on the sample’s conformance, and the Stock Posting are recorded in LIMS and then conveyed to SAP.

Label Printing Module:  The Label Printing Module provides for various activities involved with automatic label printing like Registration of a Label Name (Format) with the required field names and environmental settings, Label Data Entry, facility for identifying the text positions, and Print Orders.
