LIMS system in vitamin manufacture

Starlims Technologies' web-based LIMS is to be implemented by Schiff Nutrition International. Schiff develops vitamin and nutritional supplements in the United States and throughout the world. 

Starlims was chosen partly for its experience in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. It is also easily customisable.

Abel Sekepyan, the LIMS administrator at Schiff, said: ‘We plan to make use of existing Starlims tools, configuring them to match our own business and laboratory practices. We look forward to further automating the flow of data at Schiff, making our environment as paperless as possible.’

Starlims V10 will interface with a wide range of instruments, helping manage sample login, chain of custody, test scheduling, results entry, training records, laboratory consumables inventories, stability studies and other processes.

The decision will also provide more stringent quality and traceability, helping Schiff to comply with the US Food and Drug Administration’s new regulations for manufacturers of vitamins, herbal pills and other dietary supplements, which will go into effect 24 August 2007.
