Accelrys, Inc. has expanded its Process Management and Compliance Suite with the addition of the Accelrys Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). According to Accelrys, its new platform will transform the traditional LIMS market with a unified, more-than-LIMS offering that improves product quality, increases operational effectiveness and accelerates innovation. With a specific focus on scale-up, manufacturing and compliance, the platform delivers a process- and execution- driven architecture for data management that eliminates the complexities, excessive customization and associated lengthy validation requirements inherent to legacy LIMS. “The traditional approach to managing operations from development through commercialization is failing organizations today. Innovation is stalling. We must find better ways to accelerate innovation and to improve product quality – and to do so more effectively,” said Ken Rapp, managing director of Accelrys Analytical, Development, Quality and Manufacturing solutions. “The expansion of Accelrys’ Process Management and Compliance Suite with the Accelrys LIMS changes the paradigm with a process-driven architecture capable of solving long-standing industry problems.” Read the full story here.
