Integrating data from QC and Production to enable fast, informed decisions
Posted: 2 November 2018 | Sinéad Cowman - EU Business Development Manager at Informatics - Lonza | No comments yet
Managing the vast amounts of data involved in biopharmaceutical manufacturing and quality control workflows is often challenging due to the use of multiple stand-alone systems and devices that can act as information silos. However, with the need for tighter control of collected data, due to an increased regulatory focus, safeguarding the integrity of manufacturing and quality control data has never been more important. By bringing all of this information together in a single unified workflow, the latest integrated environmental monitoring platforms are helping to bridge the gap between these disparate systems, enabling organisations to achieve the highest levels of data integrity and make faster, more informed decisions.
Advances in production and monitoring technologies, as well as in data storage and informatics capabilities, have led to a significant increase in the number of information management systems used by biopharma organisations in their manufacturing and quality control (QC) workflows. However, for many manufacturers, this growth has further complicated an existing challenge. Ensuring rapid and reliable access to the data that’s collected throughout production and QC workflows is necessary for the release of safe and effective products. Without well-managed workflows that enable information to flow freely, but securely, between those who need it, data integrity may be compromised causing decisions to be made based on inaccurate or out-of-date information. Not only can this severely limit productivity, it can also put regulatory compliance and consumer safety at risk. Ensuring that information management systems enable biopharma manufacturers to achieve their full potential is therefore a top priority.
