We have a long and successful history working with the pharmaceutical industry. Our solutions are suitable for use in many different pharmaceutical sectors and related industries e.g. major, generic, contract, specials, nutraceutical, hospital, healthcare, biotech and animal health.
Although all these industries require secure, consistent, controlled manufacturing the flexibility that our systems offer enable them to be tailored to the individual needs of each sector and to the individual requirements of companies within each sector.
Typical solutions are in the areas of:
Ci-DMS is installed within downflow booths to control the dispensing of raw materials, the cleaning of the booth and the validation of the scales. Specific actions can be configured to require electronic signatures.
Operator actions are maintained electronically and traceability is ensured by the comprehensive audit trail.
Small scale production utilises all the functionality available within a downflow booth.
Each operator has a screen, keyboard, scanner and scales to assist them in the dispensing and mixing of the ingredients.
Typically each ingredient is weighed and used immediately. Thousands of formulations can be managed with hundreds of batches produced every day, across multiple work stations.
Ci-DMS can be used to control the dispensing of bulk materials. Ci-DMS provides a high level user interface to the bulk dispensing control system, ensures the correct amount is dispensed and reports any malfunction in the dispensing machinery. The low-level control of the valves, feeders, vacuum pumps, etc. is subject to a hardware specific interface (generally via OPC). Ci-DMS can also control the movement of IBC's between multiple dispensing stations.
Ci-DMS can also be configured to control the manual addition of material either into IBC's or directly into process vessels (e.g. granulator, mixer, roller compactor, ribbon blender, etc.). Once a bag of material has been identified Ci-DMS determines whether it can be added at this addition point at this time. Control of this process improves GMP, reduces risk and automates the recording of material consumption information.
