Pre-Packaged LIMS for Pharmaceutical/Biotech

LabVantage Pharma is the world’s only pre-validated and pre-configured pharmaceutical LIMS. This dramatically reduces the deployment time (75%) and cost (85%) compared to a traditional LIMS implementation, while providing – out of the box – the workflows and functionality required by pharma and biotech labs. That includes batch management, stability testing, consumables management, environmental monitoring, barcode label printing, and more. LabVantage Pharma is available via cloud-hosted, validated SaaS, or on-premise deployments.

Decades of experience implementing LIMS in the pharmaceutical industry are behind the creation of LabVantage Pharma.

Who Should use LabVantage Pharma?

LabVantage Pharma is the ideal solution for labs with:

  • Immediate need for operational, fully functional, validated LIMS
  • Desire to fully leverage GAMP 5 industry best practices
  • Preference for rapid, reduced-risk deployment
  • Limited resources to tackle a traditional LIMS implementation
  • Strict budget that requires low total cost of ownership (TCO)

Solution Speeds Implementation and Significantly Reduces Costs

Save up to 85% in implementation costs and 75% in time

Why spend 12 months or longer implementing a traditional LIMS – with much of that time configuring, customizing, and validating the system – when you can deploy LabVantage Pharma in a fraction of the time?

LabVantage Pharma can go live in as little as 90 days. We made the deployment process faster, smoother, and less risky with a pre-validated, pre-configured LIMS built better just for pharma and biotech labs. Built on the foundation of LabVantage 8, the most modern LIMS available, LabVantage Pharma is pre-validated according to GAMP 5 guidelines.

LabVantage Pharma FAQ

LabVantage Pharma acts as a project accelerator by saving time and costs in two areas: configuration and validation. Since we used best-practice pharmaceutical user requirements to pre-configure the solution, customers can go live with minimal configuration changes. The implementation, therefore, focuses on training your team on the pre-configured solution and helping you gather and load the master data needed to operate the LIMS. By closely adhering to GAMP 5 guidelines, LabVantage Pharma easily integrates into your existing validation processes, minimizing and streamlining the effort to validate the LIMS.

LabVantage Pharma is the only pharmaceutical LIMS solution on the market that provides complete documented evidence of previous validation execution. Pre-validation means it has already gone through a full execution of the validation life cycle based on User Requirements, from IQ/OQ/PQ, to System Release.

Other LIMS vendors do not provide fully executed validation, but instead supply only validation test scripts. These scripts then need to be rewritten to match the configuration and then executed. This adds substantial cost and likely does not cover the entire validation from the customer end. When you purchase LabVantage Pharma, you get complete evidence of the validation process for out-of-the-box platform.

LabVantage Pharma is the complete package for pharmaceutical and biotech quality laboratories. It includes everything needed to get your new, validated LIMS up and running quickly:
