Standards (Primary and Working)Quantity Management and Tracking Software
Standards are one of the significant factors for reliably good quality of pharmaceutical products. They are used as primary standards or secondary standards for the quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients and finished pharmaceutical products
AmpleLogic Standards Management and Tracking Software will be the best fit especially in the QC labs (Quality Control) of Pharmaceutical and Biotech Companies. This Standards Management Software also comply with 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 and helps in adherence to Good Laboratory Practices (GLP)
Standards Management and Tracking Software contains separate modules
- Reference Standards (Primary)
- Working Standards
- Laboratory Standards
- Reference Solutions
- Impurity Standards
Challenges of Standards Quantity Management
- Managing the Reference/working Standards and Secondary Standards using logbooks is quite challenging as it requires manual reconciliation of quantities and Usage.
- Challenges in keeping track of Expiry dates.
- Non Availability of Reference standard in Right time will impact the business
- These challenges are common for Reference Standards, Working standards, Laboratory Standards, and Impurity Standards
Primary Standards Management and Tracking Software
A reference standard may be obtained from the USP/NF or other official sources (e.g., CBER, 21 CFR 610.0). It also referred to as the primary standard. Primary Standards are primarily used in analytical studies namely Assay, Identification tests, Limit tests for related substances, Analytical method validation and system suitability in particular spectroscopic and cinematographic analysis.
The reference standards used in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry are expensive for even milligram range quantities and also sometimes may not be available from standard bodies. The traceability to a national or international standards body is very important.
AmpleLogic Primary Standards Quantity management software helps in managing the quantities efficiently and also alerts in case of shortage in the Quantity.
Reference Standards Quantity Tracker helps in generating the traceability of the Quantity used in the Working Standards too.
Working Standards Management and Tracking Software
A Working Standard is also known as In house or secondary standard that is tested and qualified against the Reference Standard. This Secondary Standard can be used instead of the reference standard.”
Working standards are also high purity grade materials which are quantified in relation to primary standards and put to routine use in laboratories. Generally, the working standards are assigned with a validity date depending on the stability of the material. The Analyst will need to prepare the fresh working standards before the expiring the validity of the available Secondary standard.
Sometimes Working Standards are maintained in monthly vials. One vial for each month and additional vials. The additional Vial can be used when the quantity of the respective month is already consumed. Following Manual process keeping track of the Validity date is challenging.
Working Standards Management software helps in managing the quantities and also provides the traceability with the Reference standard.
Auto alerts the QC team to make sure the removal of Vials which are crossed validity date
Laboratory Standards Quantity Management and Tracking Software
Managing the Quantities for the Analytical Standards, Color Standard, Flavored Standards and Primary Standard using the manual recording is quite challenging.
Each standard will be maintained in different Vials and keeping track of Quantity in each Vial maintained at different storage conditions is also Challenging.
AmpleLogic Laboratory Standards Management software helps you in keeping track of Standards Quantity Vial Wise, Auto updates the Available and Consumed Quantities.
Reminders and Escalations on Standards does down below certain defined quantity, Validity date, Retest date, and Expiry Date
Reference Solutions Quantity Management and Tracking Software
Quantity management of Reference Solutions in the QC labs of Pharmaceutical Industry currently managed thru the manual process.
AmpleLogic software for Reference solutions Quantity helps in managing the Quantities efficiently, helps in tracking the quantity usage and Destruction of the reference solutions
Impurity Quantity Management and Tracking Software
Impurities within the pharmaceutical product unit the unwanted chemicals that remain or stay with the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) or develop throughout formulation, or upon aging of every API and to medicines.
The presence of these impurities even in trace amounts would possibly influence the efficiency and safety of the pharmaceutical product. Identification and quantification of impurities (Impurity Profile) unit presently turning into necessary essential product quality parameter and obtaining a review from restrictive regulatory authorities.
As a result of this, limit and threshold values for impurities unit nominal by pharmacopeias and ICH guidelines. Analysis of impurities in keeping with this set of specifications is obligatory for the pharmaceutical product to unharness for human consumption. Impurity Profile study is very important for market approval for finished dose forms from regulatory authorities.
The identification and quantification of impurity within the pharmaceutical product unit carried by using Certified Impurity Standards of acknowledged or known purity.
Impurities purchased by the pharmaceutical company Company’s milligrams (mg) to kilogram weight unit basis. Managing the quantities of the impurities is difficult or troublesome
Amplelogic’s Impurity management software package helps in managing the quantities. Impurities information data captured based on the present lot or previous lot Grades like JP, BSP, BPCRS, and Non-pharmacopoeial alongside the Validity Date
The Impurities are placed within the Vials with correct labeling.
The usage Of the Impurities recorded and also the same is available as a report against the impurity batch number range
Common Features for all Modules includes
- Manage the Vials Wise and Quantity wise
- Bar coding for each Vial will help in avoiding human errors and easy
- Auto-generation of Consumed Quantity and Available Quantity based on the usage
- Status update based on expiry date and quantity available. System generated alert notification 45 days prior to expiry date of Standard.
- Usage of vials containing the standard is in sequential order to optimize usage and regular update of available quantity based on individual vial quantities.
- The system differentiates the vials to active, inactive, and close vials. Only active vials will be available for booking.
- The system restricts the number of bookings of the same standard at the same time. No two bookings can be allowed for the same Standard at the same time for the same product.
- Making up the validity up to date as expiry date provided in website review grid and displaying alerts on the same base.
- The sum of individual quantities used for booking shall be equal to the total quantity used for Standard Quantity Usage tracking.
- Expired standards are not displayed for booking.
- Auto Generation of Analytical Standard Destruction Report along with Date of Destruction
Benefits of Standards Quantity Management and Tracking Software
- Each product/material is assigned with a unique number so that it cannot be replicated and also makes it easy for verification and confirmation.
- Bar coding Feature helps in easily tracking the standard.
- The software provides the reports based on the analyst, batch number, and reference standard to working standard linkage.
- The label given to vials gives the review of the necessary information.
- Helps to avoid the unintended use of the expired material. Thus, reducing the cost and minimizing human errors.
