QualA is an automated qualification tool for OpenLab CDS. It will confirm that the software is operating as intended by performing a series of software qualification and verification tasks.
Run QualA after an update, OS change, or as a periodic system health check. The software executes the tests automatically and will generate reports that you can use as part of your overall validation documentation. It works in client/server and workstation plus environments.
QualA allows you to:
Stay current with software updates:
Enable periodic installation of updates and upgrades to eliminate compatibility issues in the future.
Maximize lab operations:
Automate processes for software qualification to reduce the time instruments and users need to go offline.
Employ small updates to eliminate the need for costly upgrades.
Validation and qualification tests
QualA is equipped with five tests that can be uses as part of software verification. Select one or all the tests and run them in parallel.
Software installation verification: Verifies integrity of installed Agilent Software binaries
System report: Simplifies identification of change by listing installed applications and patches and comparing it to the last report
Security test: Confirm password policies and role-based access enforcement and verifies activity logs
Workflow test: Execute a standard 18-line sequence and compare generated and expected values, confirming CDS workflow and algorithms
Connectivity test: Confirm network connectivity between Client, AIC and Server and connectivity to instruments
QualA is not intended to replace CrossLab compliance service ACE (Automated Compliance Engine) for new software installations. Learn more about CrossLab Compliance Services.
