Process Management and Compliance Suite

Accelrys has released its new integrated Process Management and Compliance Suite of software, designed specifically to facilitate collaboration and streamline product development from research through late-stage quality control and manufacturing.

The software suite is the result of Accelrys' acquisition of VelQuest earlier this year, with its paperless lab execution and data capture technology. The integrated suite consists of: Accelrys Enterprise Platform; Lab Execution System; Electronic Lab Notebook (formerly Symyx Notebook by Accelrys); and Electronic Batch Records.

Integration of the Process Management and Compliance Suite with Accelrys’ Enterprise Platform enables lifecycle aggregation, analytics, and comprehensive reporting from discovery to manufacturing, supporting Six Sigma and Quality by Design (QbD) programmes and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) initiatives in pharmaco-vigilance and risk management.

The integrated software suite supports scientists working in early and mid-stage analytical, formulation and process/bioprocess development all the way through to stability, material and release testing during late-stage quality control and commercial production. By ensuring seamless technology transfer at the crucial research, development, pilot and manufacturing handoffs, the suite enables the rapid and accurate transfer of methods, recipes and procedures captured during early development into automated execution.

The Process Management and Compliance Suite directly integrates with systems critical to development and manufacturing processes such as laboratory information management systems (LIMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP), product lifecycle management (PLM) and manufacturing execution systems (MES).
