Computerized systems used in GxP environments have to meet regulatory demands. Training courses run by The Swedish Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences aim to help participants understand not only how to carry out quality assurance of computerized systems, but how to do so efficiently. That’s why they use consultants from PlantVision as course tutors.
When you are up against tight deadlines it takes courage to stick to your own line of thinking. This proved to be a key success factor during the validation of Uppsala Imanet's new production line for the manufacture of radioactive tracers.
When your medical tubing products are helping to save lives around the world, staying on top of current issues is essential. A customized training course has strengthened Optinova's knowledge of GAMP, and provided a starting point for developing new quality processes.
Knowing your supplier's capabilities is essential if you are to invest in a new business system. A competent supplier audit not only gave Recipharm the information they needed, but also generated solutions to quality issues and created a positive platform on which to move forward.
The introduction of GAMP5 meant Octapharma needed to review its systems and routines for its blood plasma production. By choosing the right partner it has achieved this and, at the same time, developed shorter and clearer QA and validation instructions.
