Achieve a Compliant, Fully Supported, Streamlined Ag Lab with Ease
Agricultural testing involves a wide array of testing including environmental, water, soil, fertilizers, pesticides, and crop tests. The testing ensures both crop productivity and environmental compliance. Testing may include herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, soil microorganisms and soil chemistries and pH, basic water chemistries, moisture, nutrients such as total nitrogen and phosphorus, etc. These test not only ensure the quality of the raw ingredients and final, edible products but also the basic safety of humans and the environment. Regulatory requirements generally site EPA, GLP, GAPs, ISO/IEC 17025 and 21 CFR Part 11. Many local governments and state departments share the responsibilities in regulatory monitoring. Portions of agricultural testing are due in part to FDA’s HACCP.
HORIZON LIMS supports agricultural laboratory operations from sampling through analytical processing to reporting. COCs (certificates of analysis) may be generated and/or copied into the system and COAs (certificates of analysis) may be generated upon completion of testing. Using queries, a laboratory can compare data, trace samples, look for outliers and oversee regulatory compliance. Clients may remotely self-monitor results with LabOnline, our client web portal, receiving the data they need instantly as it becomes available. HORIZON is fully configurable so that you can create specialized tools for your unique agricultural lab processes.
