Since the start of the industrial revolution, chemicals production has remained a cornerstone to nearly all the manufactured goods we rely on. Pharmaceutical and healthcare goods, stronger and safer construction materials, agrochemicals and pesticides to enhance our food supply, and greener energy saving advancements like LED lighting are just a few of the industries that rely on chemical quality and the important function of impurities detection. Fast growing markets have given rise to patents for innovative chemical products like those used in photovoltaic cell production for the solar industry, germ resistant coatings for the medical industry and specialty and fine chemicals that are manufactured specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. When the purity or expected content of blends are not to specification or regulation in such important end-product categories, the manufacturers or testing laboratories need analytical solutions that offer trace or ultra-trace analysis for metals and organic compounds without the risk of introducing contaminations into the process. Steps in the testing process such as manual sample preparation or impurities in the standards utilized can also lead to contaminations, representing incremental risk to the quality and impurities analysis process.
Some fine chemical manufacturers require industry specific processes and assurances that their products’ purity levels are compliant and validated for regulated uses such as Life Science Intermediates, Excipients and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) for pharmaceutical as well as large molecule biotechnology companies. This area of chemical manufacturing requires 21 CFR Part 11 compliant systems and solutions, including software and services in order to successfully meet Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations.
Modern chemical manufacturers and testing laboratories need robust, reliable and easy to use technology platforms built to safeguard business from product quality risk, while integrating with current LIMS, online production line monitoring systems, and automation to eliminate manual steps.
