Assured Data Integrity for Analytical Instrument Qualification

Assured data integrity for analytical instrument qualification

Agilent CrossLab Network Distributed ACE (NDA)

Focus on your science and reduce regulatory risk

In response to the continued regulatory focus on data integrity, Agilent has upgraded our Automated Compliance Engine (ACE) audit-ready paperless software for instrument qualification and reporting.

Specifically, we’ve enabled the installation of Network Distributed ACE (NDA) within laboratory networks to simplify deployment and Data Integrity alignment. Like ACE, NDA is independent of your Chromatography Data Systems (CDS), so you can harmonize USP <1058> Analytical Instrument Qualification (AIQ) practices and simplify audit preparation.

Practical advantages

With ACE software, you can count on adherence to protocols, consistent calculations, and accurate reporting. Network Distributed ACE (NDA) delivers added benefits that can help your lab improve efficiency, while reducing time and costs:

  • Secure, end-to-end traceability in qualification work
  • Direct electronic data transfer from Chromatography Data System (CDS) into Network Distributed ACE (NDA)
  • Software and data access are protected by the same IT policies, controls, security, backup, and archiving that apply to other systems within your validated IT environment
  • Equipment Qualification Plans (EQPs) and Reports (EQRs) are retained within your IT domain, ensuring Data Integrity and consistency.
  • Safely move your lab from Excel- or paper-based protocols toward coordinated AIQ processes for chromatography, spectroscopy, and other technologies

Easy deployment

To facilitate implementation, NDA supports common industry software deployment models—including:

  • Direct, peer-to-peer configuration (networked PC)
  • Terminal Services (TS)
  • Remote Desktop Services (RDS)
  • Citrix® (XenApp 6 and 7)
  • Windows 7, 8, and 10
  • Windows Server 2008, 2012, and 2016
