Somerset, NJ October 13, 2020 – LabVantage Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of laboratory informatics solutions and services, including purpose-built LIMS solutions that allow labs to be more productive and efficient and to go live faster and at a lower total cost, today announced the United States Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) has awarded the company a contract to supply its LabVantage Pharma laboratory information management system (LIMS) to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR). WRAIR will use LabVantage Pharma to support vaccine production programs for COVID-19 and other diseases at its Pilot Bioproduction Facility.

“We developed LabVantage Pharma to make it fast and easy for pharmaceutical and biotech organizations to acquire and implement a state-of-the-art laboratory information management system to enable efficient and compliant quality manufacturing,” said John Heiser, CEO of LabVantage. “We appreciate that WRAIR understood the unique benefits of LabVantage Pharma and moved to expedite its acquisition via a sole source contract. We are very proud that our purpose-built LIMS is now helping the WRAIR address the urgent need for new vaccines and therapies to combat COVID-19 and other serious diseases.”

LabVantage Pharma is the world’s only pre-validated and pre-configured pharmaceutical LIMS, dramatically reducing deployment time and costs compared to traditional LIMS. LabVantage Pharma is based on LabVantage 8, a 100% web-based, enterprise LIMS. LabVantage Pharma provides a complete package for pharmaceutical and biotech laboratories. It includes everything needed to get the LIMS up and running quickly, providing out-of-the box workflows and functionality needed to manage pharmaceutical manufacturing, including batch management, stability testing, consumables management, environmental monitoring, barcode label printing, and instrument calibration, certification and maintenance.

LabVantage Pharma is pre-validated according to GAMP 5 guidelines, which greatly shortens the implementation process and reduces overall cost and risk. It complies with Title 21 CFR Part 11 regulatory requirements and is developed, tested, and maintained using a quality system based on IEEE standards for software quality. LabVantage Pharma facilitates the ability of laboratory administrators to manage the sample lifecycle, optimize laboratory execution, perform data retrieval, interface instruments and systems, and enable security and auditing. LabVantage provides comprehensive customer services, including system installation and setup, individualized methods and specifications, and personnel training.
