Formpipe Life Science is a standard software for quality assurance in life science. The software is based on Platina, a platform that has been in use for many years in the healthcare sector in Sweden. Formpipe Life Science takes care of information management when companies start working according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) as it controls operating procedures, training, instructions, all anomalies and change control.
During the early phase of drug and medical equipment development there are no legal requirements to keep track of the documentation. However, if the documentation is in order already at an early stage, it will increase the value of the company. When the life science company develops and grows the transformation to regulatory requirements will be smoothe and easy.
"When introducing system support for all your work processes, you gain the obvious, that is traceability, searchability and a more efficient way of working", said Marika Lundin, Business Development Manager at FormPipe, at the conference "Tomorrow´s Life Science" in Göteborg the 27th of May 2011. She added:
"But you also gain control of bottle necks and warning signals. In addition, the software will take care of tasks such as reminders of different periodic events making sure that the right persons are notified at the right time."
