Gen5CL Data-Collection and Analysis Software

PC-based interface

BioTek Instruments Inc, Winooski, Vt, introduces Gen5™CL data-collection and analysis software, a new tool for clinical labs using ELx800 and ELx808 microplate readers. The software combines the security of preprogrammed clinical diagnostic assays with the convenience of a PC-based application. The PC-based interface offers data analysis and output options. Previously programmed assays can be selected from the database and executed through the software interface, allowing transition from onboard programming to PC-driven data collection. Custom protocols can be created and stored from the open-protocol interface, and multiple-user levels can be assigned with customizable permissions for increased security. Data views can be customized to show preferred data sets from one plate or multiple plates in an experiment, and an optional QC Trending Module using Levy-Jennings plots is available for assay and control-performance visibility. The software can be upgraded, and it meets the requirements of 21CFR Part 11 and the European Directive 98/79/EC.
