CloudLIMS is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar titled “From Data Management to Quality Assurance: Exploring the Integration of Healthcare LIMS Software and ISO 15189 in Diagnostic Labs” on August 22, 2023, at 9 A.M. PDT (5 P.M. BST). The webinar will be presented by Martha Hernández, Scientist, CloudLIMS.com.

Webinar Overview

Clinical diagnostic laboratories serve as the critical link between healthcare practitioners and the insights obtained from medical tests crucial for diagnosing and tracking medical conditions in patients. Ensuring the quality and competence of these laboratories is of paramount importance. ISO 15189 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for the quality and competence of medical laboratories. Adhering to ISO 15189 ensures that laboratories maintain the highest levels of accuracy, precision, and reliability in their testing processes, technologies, equipment, and methodologies. This accreditation instills confidence in patients, healthcare professionals, and regulatory bodies, assuring that laboratory results are trustworthy and contribute to effective diagnosis, treatment, and patient care. However, complying with the requirements of the standard could be challenging for laboratories. An informatics tool, such as a healthcare LIMS software, can help laboratories meet the various requirements of ISO 15189 seamlessly and breeze through regulatory audits.

She had worked as an analyst at a licensed 3rd party analytical laboratory where she focused on developing and validating analytical methods for bioequivalence studies. Later, she served as a quality control expert in the analytical domain and as a monitor in clinical trials. Her interest in the clinical industry led her to be a part of two of the biggest hospitals in Mexico where she gained expertise in hematology, microbiology, and blood banking. Later, she became a member of the team of forensic chemical experts and started working from day one as a specialist in narcotics and drugs. This enabled her to gain rich experience in GC-MS, FTIR, HPLC-MS/MS, ICP-MS, and other analytical techniques for the separation, detection, and quantification of different molecules such as cannabinoids. She had participated in multiple oral trials defending her legal opinions and worked as an expert consultant. She worked on the synthesis of small molecules for testing them on multi-drug resistant bacteria and mycobacteria, further developing her analytical skills in column chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, microbiology, and compound elucidation by NMR and HRMS. She carried out a research stay at the University of Barcelona with the organic synthesis team. She had also worked on natural products in France and presented her work at conferences in the USA and France. She received awards and accolades for her exceptional work. She has participated in several conferences as a moderator as well.

Martha holds a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Chemistry from the Faculty of Medicine UANL and a master’s degree in Pharmacy from the Faculty of Chemical Sciences UANL, Mexico.
