“BPES is based upon IDBS’ data-management technology,” noted Kipling, adding that it is a solution that can be rapidly deployed to streamline and optimize bioprocess workflows.
“This allows data to be stored in context and more effectively shared between groups, deployed as a source of corporate knowledge, and used to monitor and improve process development and biological production operations,” he said.
According to Kipling, this solution enables organizations to:
• lessen the amount of repeated work by more than 10% with better access to current and past data and knowledge;
• reduce unnecessary load on fixed capital assets;
• speed up development, technology transfer and continuous improvement;
• troubleshoot processes and perform root-cause analysis in minutes rather than weeks;
• implement a knowledge and data management platform to support ICH Q10, QbD, and process understanding;
• compare data and perform process intelligence queries to help improve and optimize processes;
• trace and optimize component usage and equipment performance; and,
• dramatically reduce the time assiciated with technology transfer.
Lonza officials said that it was because of these advantages and capabilities that they chose the IDBS system.
