eSOPs are a powerful tool for specifying and auditing all the steps involved in a particular procedure. Optimised for tablet use, eSOPs allow operators to capture photos, scan barcodes, access equipment data and perform calculations.
Once an administrator has defined at least one eSOP and it has been approved for use, users can follow an eSOP by clicking "Start SOP" from the Tasks & eSOPs page. In this example two eSOPs are available, one for cryopreservation, and one for thawing.
This is how an eSOP looks to an operator. The first column shows an action that needs to be pressed to complete the task. The 'Tick' is for simple tasks that just require confirmation that they have been performed. Other tasks involve scanning QR codes, taking photographs, entering data and so on.
The second column contains the details of the task. This may include formatted text, pictures and calculations to make the instructions clearer.
The final column is the status of the task. In this example no tasks have been completed yet.
Here is the same eSOP with the first task complete. Notice that the user who completed the task is recorded together with the date and time.
For task 2 we are illustrating how to capture a deviation note. Clicking any where in the task instruction will produce the dropdown shown where deviation notes can be recorded. Photos can also be captured using the tablet's camera to help illustrate the problem.
