Industries - Pharmaceutical

Solcom specializes in the way technology and IT can assist the pharmaceutical industry both in manufacturing and in R&D.

Manufacturing - Solcom excels in particularly complex situations by bringing its knowledge and experience of science, engineering and IT together to create a solution. We can provide unusual and new ways of exploiting technology to improve productivity – in most cases substantially.

We often work with managers and teams who are tasked with continuous improvement. We have improved turn-around time between batches by 20% and replaced control systems of large production process without loss of production and achieving exceptionally short pay-back times.

We use several technologies from high-quality printing, RFID to vision systems to complement the IT solution. The software is built using the GAMP5 standards and methods and always adheres to 21 CRF Part 11 requirements.

We use computer modelling and simulation to analyse the problems and to optimize achievements. Bespoke simulators have been created for highly complex batch control, optimization and statistical analysis whilst we use third party products such as Simul8 for throughput, downtime and risk analysis.

R&D and Drug Discovery - Data capture, management and retrieval are a continuous headache in pharmaceutical R&D labs. Laboratories typically utilize incompatible expensive equipment that requires controlled utilization and data exchange.

Solcom have workflow management and interfacing that permits real-time data gathering, analysis and resource scheduling. Solcom have also created central data warehousing & reporting systems for the laboratory environment for a large pharmaceutical company.
