LabVantage Pharma

LabVantage has announced the release of its LabVantage Pharma package. Pharma is claimed to be the world’s only pre-validated, preconfigured pharmaceutical LIMS, allowing laboratories to get up and running fast with a fully operational and validated LIMS at a fraction of the cost and time of a traditional LIMS project.

Jeff Vannest, director of strategic solutions at LabVantage, said: 'LabVantage Pharma is unique in the industry: it is a pre-validated, preconfigured LIMS package for pharmaceutical environments. This includes a copy of the LabVantage 6 software that has been preconfigured for pharmaceutical use; a comprehensive, GAMP-based validation document suite; document templates for all phases of the project implementation life cycle; on-site process analysis and master data mapping to the LV software; project management and services to complete the implementation; training and more.

'After the package is assembled, we execute the entire validation suite and provide complete evidence of everything that was done to validate our own controlled system,' added Vannest.

The software arrives preconfigured, with typical laboratory user roles and customer-specific business process workflows. The pharmaceutical-specific functionality includes lot and batch management, stability testing, full sample life cycle management, dashboards, label printing and more.

Other features include configuration assistance for up to five product definitions, including test methods, specifications and stability protocols. Role-specific training for administrators and key personnel are also included to ensure all users understand and become productive on the system.
