ChemSW to Participate in Lab Manager Magazine's June Webcast on Integrating MSDSs With Chemical Inventory Management

FAIRFIELD, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - ChemSW, Inc. and 3E Company will provide the featured speakers for an upcoming Lab Manager Magazine ASK THE EXPERT webcast on Integrating MSDSs and Chemical Inventory Management to be held on June 21, 2011 from 12:30-1:30pm ET.

The average R&D laboratory typically has thousands of materials on site and each one requires a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). But having a MSDS is just the beginning because those MSDSs are frequently updated by the supplier, meaning that the Lab Manager must keep track of not only where each MSDS is and which MSDS need updating, but also any new MSDSs that need to be attached to new chemicals being ordered by the lab. Keeping up with those changes can be a complex, time-consuming, and costly task.

"Historically, MSDS management has not been integrated with chemical inventory management, so two separate processes and databases are maintained," says Tamie Webber, Director of Product Management at 3E Company. "However, the two workflows are integral to each other, so it makes logistical and financial sense to integrate the two tasks."

"The most efficient R&D labs typically automate as many manual processes as possible to optimize lab productivity," adds Anne Sefried, Technical Specialist/Inventory Consultant for ChemSW. "Integrating MSDS and chemical management processes streamlines the lab's workflows, eliminates duplicate work across locations, provides an accurate picture of chemicals in lab inventory, and reduces operating costs."

The live webinar will feature presentations by Lab Manager's editor Tanjua Koppal, 3E Company's Tamie Webber, and ChemSW's Anne Sefried. Tamie and Anne will explore the challenges involved with juggling MSDS and chemical inventory management, and different approaches that reduce the financial burden and streamline the associated workflows.
