Data input & Templates

Gain a deeper understanding of data editors and templates and learn about the different ways of data input.

Working with data editors

Use data editors to view and manage your documents and templates. Each editor provides a different view on your data. Which editors are available depends on the document type and the document setup.

Working with templates

Use templates to provide initial values for your documents or apply protection settings to document elements. In contrast to standard documents, templates should not contain any data and can therefore not be calculated.

Acquiring data

Data acquisition in PLA 3.0 allows you to import response values from external systems into existing PLA 3.0 documents. The acquired values are imported with traceability information (time stamp of the acquisition, the user who acquired the data, and original value) and details about the source file as well as the Data Acquisition Module used.

For details on the Data Acquisition Modules available for PLA 3.0, please go to 'Add-ons & Analytical methods'.

Aggregrating data

Data aggregation allows for an automatic flow of data and results from one PLA 3.0 document to another, thus supporting complex and compliant operations.

Common use cases include:

  • Combining results of assay runs for the calculation of a reportable value
  • Using your assay archive to develop equivalence margins
  • Monitoring your assay runs
