CSols Ltd is a company based in the UK, offering a wide range of laboratory informatics software solutions and services. Established in 1990, the company have many years of expertise in implementing software solutions that reduce laboratory costs and turnaround times as well as improve traceability, analytical performance and results quality. The company's mission statement is to optimise the efficiency of laboratories by interfacing various laboratory resources such as analytical instruments, simpler systems (i.e. balances), sample introduction and sample tracking systems with advanced software solutions for data processing, quality and instrument control. The design of CSols software applications is further aimed at minimising the carbon footprint of laboratories in order to address environmental benefits.
The company offers various software application packages that address all aspects of laboratory workflows from handheld solutions to support external sample collection and data logging, sample labelling and tracking, to interfacing laboratory instruments, LIMS and IT/corporate data systems as well as the managing and charting of analytical quality control data. All the software packages are well-established products, which have been proven in a competitive market for over fifteen years.
The company's software solutions address the problem of poor automation, control and integration of laboratory workflows along with inefficient and inaccurate data handling. This is due to the typical heterogeneous mixture of instruments and systems in routine use as well as the limited integration capabilities provided by IT systems like LIMS/LIS or chromatography data handling systems (CDS) or instruments and their respective software. CSols Solutions are able to bridge gaps throughout the entire workflow whatever the existing laboratory infrastructure, from external sampling using table computers, to labelling and sample tracking to instrument and data processing to result checking, quality control and reporting. As results and Quality Control Standards can be checked frequently during the analysis, the analyst can more easily interact with laboratory processes and exert control. By analysing instrument and sample data on the fly, the company's software solutions allow laboratories to extract the most value out of their data.
