New PQ Extension: Ensuring Accurate Analysis of 1D Gels through Full System Validation

The PQ Extension is an advanced software tool by Kapelan Bio-Imaging that extends the capabilities of LabImage 1D. It enables users to run a full analysis system validation for any 1D gel or western blot, providing proof of analysis quality. This is a significant breakthrough as it allows users to ensure that their analysis results are accurate and reliable.

The PQ Extension is based on a generic validation 1D gel that shows the band and lane structure with different backgrounds. This gel is scanned and analyzed with the standard LabImage 1D features. During the analysis, the measured data is compared to the given values from the validation gel. Deviations between the validation data and the first or previous validation run are recorded and reported in the validation report.

One of the primary advantages of the PQ Extension is that it is the first ever full system validation for 1D gels on the user’s side. It provides fully automated validation of the system, comparing deviations to the first and previous run. The resulting validation report is Part 11 compliant and provides users with peace of mind that their analysis results are accurate and reliable.
