10/19/2005 5:12:20 PM

LAFAYETTE, Colo., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegis Analytical Corporation, a provider of enterprise software and expertise for pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturers, announced today that Baxter has completed a successful implementation of Aegis' software solution, Discoverant Nexus, InVision and PRIMR at its BioScience manufacturing plant in Neuchatel, Switzerland.

Discoverant, a manufacturing enterprise software application, gathers data from multiple sources and allows decision makers to translate relevant data into useable intelligence through the software system's combination of sophisticated visual analysis technologies and user-centric design. With direct access to data, including that locked on paper, manufacturers have the ability to make data-intensive decisions quickly.

"By implementing Discoverant into our manufacturing process we have improved our process analytical capabilities," said Glenn Brame, Neuchatel plant site manager for Baxter. "Aegis helps us to run more efficiently as a plant and accelerates continuous improvement of our processes."

With the implementation of Discoverant, Baxter will be able to pinpoint potential problems within its manufacturing processes, resulting in a quicker resolution and less waste from lost batches, all while realizing an increase in yield.

"Baxter continues to generate cutting-edge therapies and with the deployment of Aegis' solution, the BioScience plant will be able to analyze data in a way that enhances successful production," said Justin Neway, executive vice president, Aegis Analytical Corporation.
