Thermo Scientific B·R·A·H·M·S Biomarkers explores, develops and produces new diagnostic test procedures to improve the diagnosis, and thereby the treatment, of life-threatening illnesses.
B·R·A·H·M·S was no longer satisfied with the creation of the instructions for use (IFU) for their products. With DOSCO’s support, B·R·A·H·M·S decided to change to XML technology. A key aspect was the relatively high proportion of identical or practically identical information which played a role in the different products.
In 2006 B·R·A·H·M·S implemented XML leading to substantial benefits. The reuse of certain contents simplifies the maintenance of the documentation and due to the standardization there are now uniform designations for ingredients and measurement units. Manual work to the layout and formatting has become a task of the past. The IFU application supports 16 languages and in the meantime they can also produce safety data sheets (MSDS).
