Pharmaceutical QC Lab Automation and Digitalization

The pharmaceutical industry is embracing Pharma 4.0 and the automated, continuous, and realtime-monitored production processes this entails. Microbial quality control (QC) must adapt accordingly. As customers strive to further improve productivity, data integrity, and reliability in QC testing by reducing time-consuming and error-prone manual activities, we are adapting our leading sterility testing, bioburden testing, and environmental monitoring technologies to function in integrated robotics, automation, and digitalization solutions.

We are partnering with specialized companies to automate and digitalize the microbiological workflows of production lines and QC laboratories, developing integrated solutions combining the best of our technologies. Find out below about our current partners in this field and the capabilities they contribute. Our network of partners is constantly expanding.
