Chromatography: Virtuoso Vial Identification System

  1. 1. 1 The world leader in serving science Virtuoso Vial Identification System
  2. 2. 2 Is this how you label your samples? Probably not…
  3. 3. 3 Or is this how you label your vial? Hopefully so!
  4. 4. 4 How Important is Vial Labeling “We’ve done some pretty clever things in the lab to minimize sequencing errors, but this one still keeps me up at night. I’ve asked everyone in the industry that I meet and all of our new hires if they have any ideas and so far no one has offered more than what we are currently doing.” - CEO of a large environmental lab in US
  5. 5. 5 The ideal labeling scenario 64070714 64070714 64070714 64070714 64070714 64070714 64070714 64070714
  6. 6. 6 Vial Identification Workflow – 30,000ft Vial Sample Marked Vial Cap/Closure Experiment Type Mark Vial Close Vial Storage Tray, in a position Autosampler Determine and Enter Instrument Sequence Data Analysis Add Sample Temp storage Load Sample Set # - Individual Identity Marking Detail Disposal Long Term Storage UnLoad Reference Data
  7. 7. 7 Situational Analysis • Vial labeling manual & error prone • Vial labeling is “expensive”, from the rework perspective • Vial labeling has “no good” solution yet, and existing solutions tend to be ad hoc • Vial labeling is often ignored and is often abdicated to the instrument autosampler sequence • Rather than value add, it’s necessary evil • Vial labeling is temporary & fragile • Vial labeling is not automated or considered as part workflow efficiency improvements • Vial labeling detail is compromised by the methods used for marking • Vial labeling tends to be user specific “coding” & not universal throughout a laboratory • Vial labeling depends on human resources
  8. 8. 8 What vial labeling has become • The manual nature of vial labeling, as it currently exists in most laboratories, is error prone, time-consuming and does not add value to the work flow
  9. 9. 9 Research tells us • The average time it takes to manually label (handwritten or paper label) is 39 seconds • The average wage for a laboratory analyst is $29/hr • A typical laboratory will label 80 vials per day • Over 92 hours a year labeling vial • Over $6,250 in labor spent vial labels • It’s a BIG issue
  10. 10. 10 The most prevalent way to label a vial
  11. 11. 11 Virtuoso Vial Identification System
  12. 12. 12 What is Virtuoso? First of its kind vial identification system, that removes manual vial labeling errors , automates vial labeling, creates completely customizable vial identification, and dramatically increases sample throughput, up to 8X.
  13. 13. 13 Virtuoso – What does it do?
  14. 14. 14 Virtuoso Benefits • Facilitates Labeling Requirements • Fully loaded with standard or fully user-defined templates • Increases Productivity- Eliminate error-prone manual vial labeling • Label a vial in just 5 seconds • Improve labeling efficiencies by downloading sample lists • Simplify vial sample identification • Produces High-Quality Labeling • Resists common laboratory solvents, blurring, and smudging • Provides an Advanced Labeling and information System in One Device • Designed by experienced analytical scientists
  15. 15. 15 Virtuoso - No smudge, no smear, no question Thermo Scientific Virtuoso Vial Identification System • Create customizable vial identification directly on vial • Increase vial labelling through-put up to 8 times • Improves confidence in data by removing labelling errors
