In pharmaceutical manufacturing, it’s essential that strict safety guidelines and regulations are followed and manufacturing processes are consistent and reliable. This safeguards product purity and ensures the highest possible end-product quality, which is vital to maintaining patient safety.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers require a comprehensive calibration solution that complies with stringent industry regulations while delivering productivity gains and improving data integrity and quality standards. That’s why many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and life sciences companies depend upon Beamex calibration solutions. Our solutions – all designed to help customers achieve their calibration-related goals – have been developed over 40 years by combining our own experience with feedback gained through close cooperation with industry partners.

What pharmaceutical customers say

The pharma industry is highly regulated, so it’s an exciting step to move to paperless calibration management in the cloud. Paperless calibration management forms a key part of engineering operations at our manufacturing sites, allowing paperless scheduling and recording of instrument calibration data to ensure we operate in a compliant manner. Beamex CMX calibration software ensures we comply with all relevant GxP regulations and removes the risk of manual error, while working in the cloud with Azure gives us access to new technologies and enhanced performance that further improve the user experience.

Previously, the calibration was primarily done with manual and paper-based processes. The certificate was on paper, which was signed and stored in binders. After implementing the new calibration management process, the entire process takes place digitally, from measurement to signing and archiving.

Information is available at your finger tips in order to make quick decisions about the overall calibration status of the instrumentation. The mobile electronic component of Beamex allows technicians to focus on their work without the hassle of paper and other distractions. The CMX product has proved to be both robust and reliable without much required maintenance at our facility for more than 3 years.

Boehringer Ingelheim, USA

CMX can provide reliable calibration database with history functions, and therefore it´s a great tool to improve the efficiency of calibration functions. And of course it was a huge improvement when it was possible to turn to paperless calibration documentation with CMX. It´s easy to use and maintain, and product support from vendor is first class. It´s versatile and can be customized for various different measurements, also for weighing instruments with USP and other requirements.

Orion, Finland

Ability to trend, ease of review and ease of use for my team of Technicians. Auditors love this software so if you are using it right they have no doubt you are calibrating things right.
Traceability, Auditability great functionality when used with the BEAMEX calibrators & strong support of systems on site.

Why Beamex?

The world’s leading Pharmaceutical and Life Science companies depend upon Beamex calibration solutions. Our solutions have been developed for over 40 years by combining our own experience and feedback gained through close partnerships with our customers to help them achieve their calibration related goals of compliance to regulation and productivity gains.

Many of these customers have selected Beamex calibration software, portable calibrators, and comprehensive launch and support services for their enterprise-wide solution. Calibration data has been connected and shared with their globally deployed ERP, maintenance system or instrument and asset management system to achieve end-to-end paperless calibration, streamlined processes, and truly mobile working while maximizing the integrity of the data to achieve the highest levels of compliance.

Questions and answers

For pharmaceutical companies, compliance with regulation is naturally a vital consideration. Another common challenge seems to consider data integrity, i.e. to produce calibration data without any media breaks. There is a strive within the pharmaceutical industry to remove paper-based systems for recording and approval in calibration solutions and to digitalize the whole calibration process. Another common challenge within the pharmaceutical industry is mobility, security, and data integrity with mobile devices. Also, the implementation of a global standardized calibration solution across multiple sites globally is considered a challenge for most pharmaceutical companies.

The most common trend seems to be moving away from paper-based systems and to digitalized calibration processes. Also, the integration of calibration systems to other systems (like maintenance management systems) seems to be a common trend. The use of the calibration data in other systems is another noticeable change, as well as the strive for improved mobility.

To mention some of the new technologies that are changing calibration for pharmaceutical companies: cloud technology, automatic calibration, digitalization enabling paperless calibration, more productivity with more efficient calibration, using calibration data for analysis, integration of systems, increased mobility, and naturally the effects of the Industry 4.0.

The pharmaceutical industry is most definitely moving towards more digital solutions. The common aim seems to be to improve data analytics, increased mobility, and better connectivity of systems. Alongside expectations on digitalization to improve data integrity and the development of the DCC (digital calibration certificate) standard.
