Data Integrity – Spectrum FL Enhanced Security (ES) Software for Fluorescence Spectroscopy

The FDA defines data integrity as “completeness, consistency, and accuracy of data. Complete, consistent, and accurate data should be attributable, legible, contemporaneously recorded, original or a true copy, and accurate (ALCOA)”. ALCOA itself has evolved to ALCOA Plus, which incorporates two o ...
