Thermo Scientific will launch Darwin 3.0 LIMS in April 2008, which is the latest version of its purpose-built solution for pharmaceutical manufacturing, R&D and QA/QC laboratories.
The newest features built into the latest release of Darwin have been designed to help organisations meet FDA regulations, bring significant time savings in validation efforts, and afford cost savings in personnel and production time to the pharmaceutical laboratories.
Darwin LIMS fully integrates environmental monitoring data into the batch record. The built-in charting tools allow users to visualise environmental monitoring samples by location. This ensures that any failure is apparent at the batch level and allows operations to quickly determine whether the source of the contamination is in the laboratory or the production environment. This functionality enables laboratory managers to react to nonconforming product before it reaches the consumer.
