In order to use newer ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality to replacing custom code, a biotech company chose to upgrade from STARLIMS version 10.1 to version 10.6. The upgrade would allow this company to use more standard features within STARLIMS and remove some of their custom code, thus mitigating risk while providing a more standardized baseline for future upgrades. CSols was engaged to assist with the validation of STARLIMS v. 10.6. The implementation required new business process mapping, re-configuration, and data migration from the older version. CSols was selected because of their GMP/GAMP validation expertise and system specific (STARLIMS) experience. CSols provided system configuration evaluation, validation planning, and hands-on creation and delivery of validation documentation.
