Challenge:

A long-term pharmaceutical client needed a fast turnaround of their testing records and raw data to clear their name.  They faced accusations by their treatment plant of discharging several target analytes over allowable limits.

Solution:

The C&T proprietary Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) allows for quick access to client data.   In addition, our lab is accredited to the highest local, national, and international standards producing fully defensible records of sampling and testing activities.

In this case, our responsive and fast-acting client services department accessed our LIMS and produced searchable pdf reports and raw data packages for the prior 24 months of wastewater sampling and analyses within 24 hours of receiving the inquiry.

These electronic records were proof that the manufacturer was compliant to their discharge limits and since they included all the raw data, also allowed us to reconstruct all analyses performed.

Results:

C&T proved the manufacturer to be in compliance with allowable limits for the target compounds.  In addition, extensive and complete records of all tests including raw data proved conclusively that the manufacturer’s waste water was sampled and tested at regulatory prescribed intervals.

The treatment plant recanted their accusations.

The resolution of this issue took just two weeks and required little time from the client personnel, saving them time and money and providing them peace of mind knowing they work with a world-class lab like C&T.
