CDMO Metrics has launched “PharmaVision,” a video monitoring service which will enable clients to oversee onsite production procedures.

Claimed to be the first offering of its kind, the service will be granted to clients free of charge and is said to offer ‘secure, web-based streaming video’ which enables ‘remote “man in the plant” oversight’ of their development and manufacturing projects.

The ‘man in the plant’ status will allow a company representative to monitor on-site tasks such as the auditing of documents, inspection of materials and the confirmation of batch records.

VP of Marketing and Sales at Metrics, Jeff Basham, says the offering responds to the client’s need to be “closer to the action than normal operating procedures might allow because of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) controls.​”

Basham told Outsourcing-pharma the Metrics’ system “allows transmission of formulation development or manufacturing activities to the man in the plant’s computer, so he can literally see everything going on.

Because Metrics works with companies worldwide, we anticipate that our audio-visual service will be especially attractive to our overseas partners for whom the service will save travel-related time and money.​”

Process monitoring

Basham added that in-process changes are normal practice whenever scientists collaborate on developing a pharmaceutical product and see ‘unfavorable chemistry happening’. He claims therefore that Metrics’ two-way audio-service will encourage good science as well as good development and manufacturing practices.

We unveiled the audio-visual service at the AAPS annual conference, and were pleasantly surprised by the tremendous amount of “buzz” it generated. Several clients and potential clients have expressed an interest in using the service​,” said Basham.

A ‘tour of PharmaVision’ on Metrics’ website details the options available through the service, including the ability to ‘monitor your project, make comments and observations, see specifications and details clearly and request changes or modifications.’
