Chemical Inventory Systems Key for Pharmaceutical Pilot Plants

Published: Tuesday, June 21, 2005 - 22:00

Chemical inventory systems deliver real-time and accurate information about inventory status to ensure greater cost control while supporting validation requirements, according to a recent in-depth white paper from ChemSW Inc.“Chemical Inventory Systems Enable Pharmaceutical Pilot Plants to Accurately Manage Chemical Inventory Information in a Regulated Environment” discusses components of a chemical inventory system (CIS), explains how such a solution integrates into an existing IT infrastructure, describes how pilot plants can leverage these systems to maximize their processes, and highlights the importance of ensuring that such a solution can be accurately validated and complied with FDA 21 CFR Part 11. The paper was written by David Hessler, ChemSW’s vice president for software research and development.

As documented in the paper, a CIS can deliver a high-performance relational database system for tracking chemicals and other laboratory supplies. Accurate, real-time inventory information enables all pilot plants to operate more efficiently, regardless of whether the facilities are regulated or whether good manufacturing processes are used. Each organization faces different challenges in deploying and implementing CIS. Thoughtful analysis of the different commercial solutions will allow the organization to select the best fit for their processes and workflows.

ChemSW is a provider of chemical and biochemical inventory management systems, MSDS systems and other chemistry laboratory software and services. For more information, visit www.chemsw.com.
