Quality Control System Provides All Functions for Pre-packaging and In-Process Control

Mettler Toledo introduces Version 5.2 of its FreeWeigh.Net, a powerful, comprehensive software solution for quality control in pharmaceutical production. FreeWeigh.Net provides all functions necessary for pre-packaging and in-process control for pharmaceutical applications. The system is well-suited for quality control of single-dose drug preparations, individual blister filling and retail pack checking.

FreeWeigh.Net provides pharmaceutical companies with a range of functions to ensure compliance with the complex specifications of FDA 21 CFR Part 11. The optional Audit Trail module guarantees complete traceability of all changes in the system with programmable logs. Additionally, the software system provides an unlimited number of user groups and over 50 individual, centrally managed authorization options. A comprehensive password management system and electronic signatures offers additional security.

With the FreeWeigh.Net device integration module, a variety of devices can be connected to the system without additional programming. For instance, to allow for checking of tablet characteristics such as weight, diameter, thickness or hardness, a tablet-conveyor system can be placed to provide quick and easy connection and monitoring of all necessary instruments. Checkweighers, metal detectors and manual test instruments for small batches can also be integrated and centrally monitored for packaging quality control.

FreeWeigh.Net supports regulations of both the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopeia (PhEur). The software platform was developed to meet all Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) requirements. With FreeWeigh.Net, pharmaceutical companies are assured of maximum patient safety and protection of their brands.
