Successful product development with diaLIMS

With our software, recipes and products, their components as well as properties and process steps can be recorded and managed conveniently and efficiently. Use our clear recipe management and create new development and production recipes effortlessly.

The diaLIMS modules...

for recipe development and recipe management provide equal support for research and development as well as for production.
Additional modules for products, batches, supplier management, project management and for reports, reports and evaluations offer all the functions,
you need for product development.

Test preparation

Test preparation

Create development recipes on the basis of existing production recipes and extend them with modified components
or process steps.

Products, ingredients, properties and other values are taken from the production recipe and displayed clearly in a hierarchical view. 

Start recipe development by creating different variants with different compositions.
with different compositions.  

Use the system as an assistant for your statistical test planning - specify all procedures to be applied, change
factors, adjust parameters and keep track of all changes.
all changes.

As a basis, the application provides a product management module that can be used to manage intermediates, end products, raw materials, excipients and chemical substances (REACH- and GHS-compliant). Data on specific conditions attached to certain substances can be entered in the program, thus enabling a clear raw material listing.

Test execution

Test execution

Document all information on your tests with the possibility of later evaluation.

Compare all variants from the entire variant hierarchy, with their composition as well as their properties, in a clear tabular display. This allows you to quickly see what has been changed in the formulation and how the tests differ from each other.

Recognize at a glance which recipe variant is most suitable and develop this variant further or generate a new version of the production recipe from it.

Through recipe validation, the system checks whether all requirements for the transfer to a production recipe have been met and all necessary details have been maintained.

Trial productions

Trial productions

Before production in larger quantities takes place, trial productions can be carried out and precisely documented with diaLIMS.
You can produce and test small quantities on the basis of selected formulation variants.
You decide for which variants, on the basis of which approaches, and
with the help of which production equipment you would like to carry out test productions. The testing of test productions is comparable to the quality assurance of actual production processes.

The results of the test production in turn give you reason to create further recipe variants. Once you have selected a product, you can
reconcile the sales data with our LIMS and manage the transfer to the ERP software.

All these steps can be efficiently supported and mapped with diaLIMS.

Project Planning & Controlling

Project Planning & Controlling

To ensure that the processes between all parties involved run time-efficiently
and smoothly, the system supports you in maintaining an overview of the
in project management. 

Recipe development can be combined well with the project management module. This ensures an overview even over a large
number of ongoing and completed development projects.

Task planning is ensured with the assignment of responsibilities for individual project steps.

Optimize your team and resource management with our
project management tool. Manage team members, document
document work records, formulate requirements for the project team, create employee-related activity lists and control access authorizations for project data.

Create structure in your project by defining individual sub-projects (e.g. approval procedure, formulation development, documentation) and break them down into further sub-projects to ensure clear and efficient processing of sub-steps. Times and milestones can be defined for each sub-project, so that deadlines can be optimally monitored.
