Blockchain-based Laboratory Operations Control System

ARXUM BLOCS

Good Manufacturing Assurance for Laboratories

Trusting Laboratory Results

Your customers put utmost trust in the results your laboratory creates from specimen samples. The laboratory results you deliver have a serious impact for your internal or external customers:

  • food brands may make public claims about their food quality,
  • medical doctors may take decisions on patient treatment
  • pharmaceutical companies create medication recipes or product formulations
  • production companies tune their production parameters

Provide ultimate transparency on compliance with regulatory processes and GMP!

End-to-End Digital GMP Assurance
Ensure all operations are executed according to regulatory procedure definitions


Quality of lab results are depending on

  • Adherence to manual procedures
  • Un-tampered raw data
  • Strict adherence to cell culture procedure times
  • Temperature profiles in sample treatment
  • Operational excellence and quality
  • Traceability & compliance

The Challenge of a Diversified Laboratory Landscape

Most lab environments host a multitude of heterogeneous laboratory machines or client equipment, each one perfect for its specific purpose. While audit trailing is implemented in each client system, allowing to follow all steps performed on a machine, the deviation from pre-defined procedures can only be detected when it is too late. True confidence can only be achieved through fully digital real-time control of processes.

  • ARXUM® BLOCS records any event generated by laboratory equipment immediately at its origin and sends events directly to a blockchain ledger.
  • Smart Contract business logic determines if an event or a specific sequence of events violate regulatory requirements, e.g. overwriting raw data, renaming of results, data deletion, etc.
  • Alerts can be configured to notify quality managers for specific events
  • Unified reporting provides an overview on regulatory compliance over a wide range of different laboratory equipment with the possibility to mend invalid lab runs based on electronic signatures
  • A wide range of supplier equipment can be integrated
