Adopting Automation

For decades, robotics have been available, but have been either too costly or difficult to implement. With significant improvements to software and machine-learning, along with more cost-effective robot manufacturing, robotics have become a viable option for players throughout the supply chain, including small-scale operations.

Robotics have never been as adaptable as they are today, and this will increase exponentially in the near future. This flexibility, in conjunction with radical improvements in software, will fuel an explosion in robotics implementation.

Robotic Opportunities

Automation offers a wealth of opportunities in the pharma industry. Recent advances in automation technology have made it more accessible and userfriendly. Upgrading or creating manufacturing lines with more automation increases reliability, safety, compliance, security, and, in most cases, efficiency. These benefits have made automation more than a show piece for highvalue lines, but a major component in modern manufacturing.

Accelerate Your Database Lock Using Clean Patient Optics

Bioclinica

Because a key step towards database lock is obtaining clean data for all patients, the ability to verify that data are clean early accelerates the ability to lock the clinical database. This ultimately shortens the overall study timeline while ensuring the quality of your data. However, this can be challenging when manually reviewing study data, particularly with larger studies.
