HOPKINTON, Mass., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- VelQuest Corporation, world leader in lab execution systems for the pharmaceutical industry, today introduced a new paperless microbiological environmental monitoring system for manufacturers in life science industries. SmartLab EM was developed in collaboration with quality control personnel at top pharmaceutical companies who were seeking a new paperless microbiological and environmental monitoring management system to reduce errors and risk for batch rejection in aseptic processing facilities.
FDA Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations require manufacturers to include microbiological and environmental monitoring data with product batch release documentation. Paper based management, collection, and reporting of this data is difficult. Errors can put the manufacturer at risk for compliance deviations, delayed product release, and batch rejection.
"SmartLab EM enables microbiology quality control groups to efficiently manage all aspects of a microbiological monitoring plan," said Gene Tetreault, Senior Vice President of Engineering at VelQuest. "SmartLab EM manages site plans, sampling schedules, work prioritization, resource assignments, bar code labeling and scanning, sample tracking, and trending reports...everything you need for a compliant environmental monitoring program in a lean manufacturing operation."
