Paper-based processes still burden most QC Micro programs: paper scheduling, sharpie pen labeling of sample media, manual reconciliation, paper log book entry, and manual notification on deviations. These steps are labor-intensive, time consuming, and yield duplication of tasks and high error rates. Amylin has successfully implemented MODA™—a paperless QC Micro solution by Lonza. As a result, Amylin is achieving their goal to automate their QC processes and regulatory compliance at their manufacturing facility.
