LIMS for Pharmaceutical Testing
Most American consumers are unaware of the rigorous testing processes that take place before a new drug hits the market. Highly effective and reliable testing is essential for new pharmaceutical products that can help improve health conditions and life quality to reach the end patient.
The right Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) can help a laboratory improve all of its operations and efficiencies, including the highly-detailed process of pharmaceutical testing. Whether you are just entering the field of pharmaceutical testing or looking to update your existing laboratory with the latest in LIMS technology, we are here to simplify what is often an overwhelming process and answer all of your questions in this article.
What Is Pharmaceutical Testing?
Any company that seeks to bring a new drug to market in the United States must go through rigorous testing that, according to the FDA , includes the following steps:
- Discovery and Development
- Preclinical Research
- Clinical Research
- FDA Drug Review
- FDA Post-Market Safety Monitoring
Before a drug can be tested in humans, the company or a sponsor must perform laboratory testing to determine efficacy, safety, and potential health benefits.
How LIMS Supports Pharmaceutical Testing
For laboratories that offer pharmaceutical testing, a LIMS can transform antiquated, paper-based testing into modern-day cloud-based data that improves quality, efficiency, speed of testing, quality control, and data integrity. Additionally, it helps to ensure that data is properly maintained from discovery to manufacturing.
