Implementing CIMS For Process Operations
By Gail Dutton
For many bioprocessing professionals the proliferation of process monitoring and control solutions presents an immense opportunity to improve their knowledge of their mammalian cell cultivation or microbial fermentation processes.
Comprehensive information management systems (CIMS) are helping them manage this data, providing much needed efficiency boosts as scientists generate increasingly large datasets and companies implement quality by design as well as process analytic control standards.
The advantages of CIMS lie in their ability to seamlessly integrate information among a variety of analytic instruments and bioreactor control software to enhance and streamline bioprocessing workflow, according to scientists at Lonza Biologics (www.lonza.com) and Gevo (www.gevo.com).
