Security, auditing and traceability for Echo Liquid Handler


Designed to Enable 21CFR Part 11 Compliance

Echo 21CFR11 Compliance Manager locks down and tracks all Echo Liquid Handler use, including protocol changes and output files using state-of-art security algorithms.

Workflows for Design of Experiments (DOE), pooling large numbers of assay components, or sample randomization, that are commonly challenging for traditional automated liquid handlers, are performed with ease in Regulated Environments using Echo Liquid Handlers.

Key Features

  • Seamless integration with Echo Software Applications
  • User permissions management through Microsoft Windows Active Directory
  • Enforced data integrity using state-of-the-art checksum verification
  • Echo protocol versioning and approval
  • Compliance with 21CFR Part 11

Seamlessly integrating with your Echo Liquid Handler applications, Echo 21CFR11 Compliance Manager (ECM) enables information technology teams to directly manage Echo Liquid Handler user, protocol, and log file access through Microsoft Windows Active Directory. Five levels of user permissions are supported controlling who can view, create, edit, approve, archive, and delete data. Using advanced checksum verification algorithms, the software detects any data tampering assuring data integrity and peace of mind.

How Acoustic Liquid Handling Can Improve Your Bioassay Workflows

Iain Russell, Ph.D., Sr. Product Manager at Labcyte compares acoustic droplet ejection (ADE) technology to standard tip-based liquid handlers, and how ADE can reduce run-to-run variability through method standardization and also reduce analyst variability in biological assays.
