OpenLAB CDS, when used with an OpenLAB data management solution, provides secure data storage. After acquisition or processing, all methods, data and reports can be automatically stored in a secure repository. As files are stored, the software automatically extracts and indexes relevant information, such as sample name and operator, to expedite its future retrieval. Changes are recorded in the audit trail. Files are revisioned for ease of reviewing before and after changes.
