Book Holder

Book holder used in laboratory

What is book holder?

Book holder is a kind of bookshelf used as a reading aid and is compatible with books and publications of all thicknesses and sizes and electronic readers. It can be adjusted to read at an angle. In the laboratory, bookholders are usually made of plastic.

Feature of book holder

a. Reading angle adjustable. Theoretically, the reading angle can be adjusted between 0 degrees (flat) and 90 degrees (perpendicular to the table) of the book holder. The stand should have a non-slip design (such as a non-slip rubber cover) to ensure that it can remain stable at different angles.

b. Suitable for books of different thicknesses. At least 4cm thickness of books can be placed. The pages should also have a non-slip design at the clip to avoid the pages slipping off by themselves.

c. It can hold 16-page size books. Ideally designed to be width adjustable for reading newspapers and large format magazines.

d. Easy to flip through. A hard spring clip type of design can hold the pages firmly in place, but it is more complicated to turn the pages, which is only suitable for reading more text or heavier books. There are also damping bud binders and soft spring binders for readers.

e. It helps to maintain the distance between the eyes and the book, protects the eyes, and prevents eye diseases.

f. It helps to reduce lumbar, cervical, and back strain and is effective in preventing hunchback, lumbar, frozen shoulder, and cervical spine diseases.

g. During reading, the cervical spine can be made straighter, which helps the brain to supply oxygen and blood to ensure that the brain works in a good condition.

Requirements for managing instrument and equipment files in the laboratory

An important application of the book holder in the laboratory is for viewing laboratory archival records. The following are the requirements for managing instrumentation files in the laboratory.

Book stand

A. Equipment acceptance record

The initial acceptance of the equipment should be carried out before the first time it is put into use, the record should show the basic information content of the equipment, including the name of the equipment, number, model specifications, grade, measurement range, allowable error, uncertainty, and other technical indicators, including carrying software information. The record should be able to meet the basic requirements of the laboratory engaged in testing equipment. In addition, the record should also include information on the accessories carried by the equipment.
Laboratory acceptance of large equipment usually requires the supplier to install and commission, the process of installation and commissioning all the equipment generated in the validation of the test chart, the original records of the trial run, commissioning, and installation of the records should be saved, as documentary proof of equipment validation.

The instrumentation should be put into use for the first time. The laboratory should seek external agencies to verify the normal function of the equipment by calibration or calibration, and the laboratory should keep the first traceable calibration certificate or calibration certificate, as well as the confirmation records of calibration.

B. Equipment operation record

After the equipment is accepted, the laboratory should record the process of using the equipment in the process of using the equipment. This record should show the operating status of the equipment so that in the event of equipment failure, the equipment can be quickly traced back to the status of the equipment before the failure. At least should include: the name of the equipment, the unique number, the time of use, the items/samples tested information (can only record the sample number), before the use of the status confirmation, after the use of the status confirmation, equipment failure records, the use of the person's signature.

C. Equipment period verification record

The period verification of equipment is to ensure functional confidence in the equipment to ensure the quality of testing. The laboratory should maintain in its files information on the program/operating instructions for the period verification of the equipment, records of the period verification of the equipment, including records of the raw observation data generated by the implementation of the period verification.

D. Equipment history traceability record

The equipment should be put into use after the uninterrupted calibration chain to ensure the calibration status of the instruments and equipment, and the laboratory should keep the calibration certificate/certification certificate of the equipment over time, as well as the records of the confirmation of calibration/certification results.

E. Equipment maintenance record

Laboratory equipment should be regularly maintained and records of maintenance should be kept. The records should at least reflect the object of maintenance, maintenance cycle, maintenance items, maintenance results, maintenance conclusions, identification of the person who performed the maintenance and date identification, and confirmation information of the reviewer.

F. Equipment failure record

All failures of the equipment during operation should be recorded. This record can help the laboratory understand the operating status of the equipment at a later stage and make timely adjustments to the cycle of calibration/checking and periodical verification to ensure the confidence of the equipment. Failure records should include, at a minimum: identification of the person who failed, the date, a specific description of the failure, a record of the measures taken for the failure, a record of the repair of the failure, a record of the equipment verified to meet the requirements after repair, including records of acceptance and traceability, and a record of the approved use of the equipment.

If any equipment is modified because of the need, the laboratory should re-verify the equipment and keep the relevant verification records.

Notes on electronic files in the laboratory

A. Adopt the management mode of co-existence of paper files and electronic files to ensure the traceability of important information

The management mode of the co-existence of paper and electronic files makes important information traceable. Because the data in this mode cannot be altered at will, it effectively avoids the defect of separating the content and carrier because of electronic files. At the same time, some information collation, categorization, and analysis, and can play the electronic file of fast, efficient, time-saving features.

This makes the two cooperate and avoid shortcomings. In practical application, special attention should be paid to digital signature, information authentication, identity verification, and encryption protection when establishing electronic archives to avoid errors in the transmission of documents and to ensure the originality, authenticity, and accuracy of electronic archives, as well as the implementation of uniform and unique codes for instruments, sample numbers, standard substances, etc. to ensure the continuity and traceability of electronic archives.

There is also a problem with this management mode, that is, in the process of file establishment, information needs to establish two kinds of files and which only need electronic files, which need to be selectively categorized by the maintainers of the files, to give full play to the respective advantages of both and realize the complete preservation of important information.

B. Regulating the use of electronic files and focusing on the protection of intellectual property rights

The laboratory should formulate corresponding regulations on the management and use of electronic files so that the information in the electronic files is effectively monitored when it is retrieved and transmitted, and the users are not allowed to read and download it casually. At the same time, the contents of electronic files need to be managed at a confidential level, and there must be a person responsible for the security protection of the contents with high confidentiality, especially focusing on the contents of some information with significant research significance and reference value, because this information represents the highest level and capability of the unit's laboratory, and are the result of the efforts of all members of the unit.

C. Strengthen personnel technical training and improve personal responsibility to meet the future development needs of electronic documents

It is necessary to strengthen the training efforts of the archives management personnel so that they can realize the importance of electronic archives from an ideological point of view, appreciate the benefits brought by the application of electronic archives from the daily archiving work, and ensure the authenticity, reliability, and safety of the contents of electronic archives from the technical point of view.

In addition, the management of laboratory electronic archives should be further strengthened to overcome some shortcomings of electronic archives, such as the contents, format, and location of electronic archives should be standardized, and a person should be designated to maintain and update them; the financial investment should be appropriately increased to improve the network system of laboratory electronic archives. Install hardware and software firewalls, upgrade and update them regularly, replace labels on system disks and data disks in time, take necessary protection measures, encrypt and seal confidential documents and data, and make good backups; at the same time, the preservation management of electronic file software carriers should be strengthened, and electronic files and documents that need to be preserved for a long time can be copied to durable carriers and copied regularly to prevent information loss. At the same time, the preservation environment should be incorporated into the quality management system, which should be equipped with measures of temperature control, waterproof, dustproof, lightproof, lightning proof, wear and tearproof, strong shockproof, virus-proof, etc.
