In regulatory Ames studies, historical control data must be presented with the
findings of the study. The latest addition to the Ames Study Manager suite from
Perceptive Instruments, the Ames Historical Controls module, provides a friendly
easy-to-use method of reporting, auditing and producing statistics from your
historical control data.
As part of the OECD 471 guideline on the bacterial reverse mutation assay,
laboratories are required to submit historical control data as part of a
regulatory study. The historical controls module provides you with everything
you need to achieve this, integrating with the Ames Study Manager to provide
the complete solution for regulatory Ames testing.
- Achieve full regulatory compliance by including historical controls in your Ames reports
- Includes all statistics required by OECD 471 including ranges, means and standard deviations
- Seamless integration with Microsoft Excel for customised reporting and export
- Easy searching, sorting and filtering of all your control and audit data
- Full audit trails and GLP reasons for changes monitor actions within both Excel and Historical Controls
- User account management options for GLP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
- Comprehensively tested and validated in accordance with our Quality Management System which is approved to ISO 9001:2008 incorporating ISO 90003
Providing maximum flexibility to help you work your own way
We recognise that different laboratories take different approaches to how
they manage their historical controls data. Whilst some laboratories include
the very latest control data within their reports, others will update their
statistics on a monthly or yearly basis. Whichever method you use, the
Ames Historical Controls program ensures that your data is
kept safe and secure.
The program is designed to provide maximum flexibility, allowing you to instantly
see which control sets have been included, as well as those that have been excluded.
You can quickly search on controls from any date range, or see all controls performed
using a specific methodology, e.g. pre-incubation. You can choose to include all
controls used by a specific experiment or any subset of plates based on type, strain,
S9 mix etc.
Secure reporting via Excel
The system comes with a set of pre-defined tabular reports, charts and graphs.
Because reporting is managed through Microsoft Excel, you can quickly adapt
these reports or even design your own to match your current format. Pivot tables
within Excel allow instant filtering of control data based on strain, S9 mix,
solvent or any other control information stored within the Ames Study Manager.
This makes it easy to quickly create statistical tables, with ranges, means
and standard deviations, based on precise search criteria.
Auditing and user administration
Audit trails monitor and record all changes to the historical controls data,
including recording reasons for including and excluding individual controls.
Audit data can be viewed from within the program or exported to Excel. The Ames
Historical Controls program itself is protected using the same system of user
control as the Ames Study Manager, allowing for centralised administration of
all users through the System Access Manager for full compliance with the FDA 21
CFR part 11 final rule on Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures.
