Dear Sir or Madame,
As you surely know, PLA 3.0 is an extensible platform for biostatistical analysis. You can use our Data Acquisition Modules to populate the data tables of a document directly from external systems. A typical example would be plate readers. It provides a stream of measurement values that need to be imported into the data table of a specific document. Of course, this has to happen in a GLP/GMP compliant way. Each Data Acquisition Module is specific to the external data format it supports.
In contrast to Data Acquisition Modules, you would use Document Import Modules to generate fully specified documents of a specific type. Document Import Modules are useful when an external format contains every information required to create a specific document. For example, if a third-party program deals with biological assays, you can set up a Document Import Module in a way that it delivers a completely specified Quantitative Response Assay. Here, the Document Import Module converts all settings and creates the appropriate PLA 3.0 document.
If you have any further questions, please contact our Sales Manager Tanja Farrenkopf via email.
