LabVantage and Lonza partnership to combine LIMS with environmental monitoring capabilities

LIMS provider LabVantage has extended its partnership with Lonza to offer purpose-built environmental monitoring capabilities integrated with its software.

LabVantage provides a configurable, web-based LIMS, designed for a wide variety of industries such as pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage, chemicals, oil and gas, consumer packaged goods. Lonza’s MODA-EM environmental monitoring solution for quality control microbiology provides a mobile computing platform for the paperless collection, processing, and tracking of environmental monitoring and utility samples. The software also includes visualisation capabilities with an extensive library of pre-built reports and charts. 

‘We are excited to extend our partnership with Lonza to offer our customer’s best-in-class environmental monitoring capabilities’ said Bob Voelkner, manager, strategic accounts at LabVantage. ‘The ability to integrate the environmental monitoring workflow across LIMS and MODA-EM provides customers with the most comprehensive, end-to-end monitoring capabilities in the market.’

LabVantage has been an exclusive partner of Lonza since 2007, and both companies have been working together to provide customers with the most advanced environmental monitoring capabilities in the market.

With LabVantage 8, LabVantage has introduced the MODAConnector, the only commercially available off-the-shelf LIMS interface to the MODA-EM solution. LabVantage, when implemented together with Lonza’s MODA-EMsolution and the LabVantage MODAConnector, enables the exchange of data between the two systems providing increased operational efficiency, improved quality, and reduced cost. The MODAConnector uses a standard web-services based interface to provide bi-directional exchange of testing requests and micro results between the two systems. The interface also provides LIMS users with visibility into any environmental monitoring deviations during the manufacturing process ensuring product quality during lot release. 

LabVantage is the only company in the market today that offers a LIMS solution pre-integrated with the MODA-EMplatform.

Richard Kelley, global director of business development, Informatics, Lonza expressed his delight at the continued partnership: ‘Lonza and LabVantage represent best-in-class applications for microbiology and analytical quality control.  The integrated MODA-EMand LabVantage 8 product suite provide customers with unparalleled functionality and capabilities for a comprehensive product lot release data set.’
