Life-science industry leader Lonza moves to paperless EM
Lonza Bioscience's Walkersville, Maryland facility operates 13 clean room suites, with the majority of these suites supporting Class 100/ISO 5 Aseptic Processing operations, requiring an extensive EM program that generates large volumes of data.
In 2007, Lonza Walkersville chose to automate the EM program using mobile, wireless and informatics technologies by MODA™ - a paperless QC micro solution. The effort was a part of a company-wide Lean Six Sigma (LSS) initiative to eliminate waste, reduce lead and labor time, and improve overall compliance.
Acquisition of MODA benefits Lonza and its customers
The MODA™ solution quickly proved successful, giving Lonza the confidence to initiate a global deployment across all of its manufacturing plants. In May 2010, Lonza acquired MODA Technology Partners and added the MODA™ product line as a key component to its informatics platform offered by the Rapid Testing Solutions business unit.
