  • Incubators remain closed using wired validation equipment, i.e., less recovery time from opening door or loss of studies from battery failure by using wireless loggers.

  • Live, accurate readings throughout the test obtained remotely to ensure test was performing as expected.

Quality Benefits

  • Easily review trends to start/stop qualification

  • 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant equipment

Global Pharma Facility: 
Sterile Injectables

Exploratory Phase Evaluation (EPE)

About Our Client 

One of the largest sterile injectable facilities in the world, produces almost 25% of all sterile injectables used in U.S. hospitals. Annually the site produces more than 400 million units for patients in the U.S. and around the world. 

Business Challenge: Why Client Opted for the NEXA | EPE

With such a high volume of output from the site, equipment uptime and availability are essential. Although different continuous improvement efforts were underway at the site in the areas of Maintenance, Calibration, Reliability and Spares Management, there was no overarching report on the current state, the proposed future state, and the amount of value obtainable from these different efforts. The site considered the EPE the best way to capture all of this information in the shortest amount of time.

Global Asset Management Lead

 Leading Life Sciences Client

Having experts come in and produce a report that showed the inefficiencies and opportunities that existed within our Calibration Program was essential in getting wider understanding and support for change at our facility. The report had an incredible amount of detail, but was presented in such a way that made it easy to digest. [NEXA | EAM] came with a great reputation and it was easy to see why.
