Specialist Visual Basic for Applications
I have successfully implemented a Labware LIMS (Laboratory
Information Management system) at Mintek. I was one of the first people in South Africa who implemented and configured system with minimal vendor support. This project consisted of system configuration, writing of user programs and reports. There was a large element of training of users and responding to user concerns. This initial phase of the project was completed in six months.
Through years I have implemented
•Interfacing to our SAP system (analytical costs and project information)
•Web sample login (here I used a lab Ware programmer),
•Instrument interfacing using a Excel spread sheet program developed by me.
•Methods to measure the quality of analytical results
•Reconfigured the system due to restructuring to the division.
•Upgraded the LIMS from version 4 to version5
•Suitable validation of the LIMS for 17025 and Mintek purposes
These Projects were successful due to my attention to detail and persistence.
I also represent my division in I.T matters at corporate level and I report directly to the manager of Analytical services at Mintek.
My position also entails that I develop new projects to extend the LIMS and make the management of information more efficient and secure. I am also responsible for development of suitable Statistics to monitor the quality of analytical results.
I received an award from Mintek for my work on the LIMS.
During this time period I was also responsible for the manufacturing, certification and selling of certified reference materials. I also assisted the division in calculating uncertainties for there methods and in validation.
Another responsibility was that I managed a large external clients interests in the
Division. The Skills developed here were customer relationships, conflict resolution and negotiation skills
