Technology and products


iQ-BASIC is a modular computer-aided quality assurance/management (CAQ) system.[3] The system offers over 40 different modules, many of which interface with the other modules.[4]

iQ-LIMS is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) module for iQ-BASIC that is "targeted especially to the requirements of a typical materials laboratory." It "fulfills any relevant requirements arising from DIN/ISO 17025 for test laboratories and offers significant saving potentials resulting from avoiding time-consuming manual procedures."[5]
