A Match Made in Heaven

Emerging technologies in process control can lead to a quantum leap in process intensification that will help pharmaceutical industries thrive, even in an increasingly competitive global market. A particularly powerful and compelling application consists of combining factory automation and robotics with process analytical technologies (PAT). By implementing such a system, drug manufacturers can become more accurate and agile. This will satisfy compliance while ensuring efficiency in their R&D and manufacturing operations.

Ensuring high-quality, effective drugs that meet regulatory requirements and customers’ expectations are challenges that the pharma and life sciences sectors constantly need to address by means of robust and comprehensive quality assurance and process control strategies. The digitisation and automation of laboratories and drug manufacturing processes can be a powerful ally to these industries, specifically, the cooperation of PAT and robotics.

This establishes a real-time link between process control and process automation, which can be used to promptly implement quality assurance and manufacturing decisions. In this environment, the physical information from sensors and analytical instruments are passed on to a higher-level system for adaptive decision making (i.e., PAT knowledge management) that communicates with industrial or collaborative robots to act promptly on the basis of the decision taken.

Clinical Trials in Russia Orange Paper: 2nd Quarter 2014

Synergy Research Group

The Ministry of Health of Russian Federation approved 194 new clinical trials of all types including local and bioequivalence studies during the 2nd Quarter of 2014 (3% less than at the same period of the last year). The main contribution to the total number of studies was made by multinational multi-center clinical trials (MMCT) and the number of these studies stayed the same as in Q2 2013 – 81 studies. The number of bioequivalence studies (BE) decreased from 76 studies in Q2 2013 to 59 in Q2 2014, a 22% decrease from last year’s figure. The number of local clinical trials (LCT) increased from 42 in Q2 2013 to 54 clinical trials in Q2 2014.
