How Reliable Is The Pharma Equipment You Buy?
By Trisha Gladd, editor, Pharmaceutical Online and Bioresearch Online
When it comes to equipment manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry, it is imperative that a product functions exactly as it was intended. Any misstep caused by faulty equipment could have catastrophic results for the company that produces a drug, but more importantly, for the patient who uses it.
The serious consequences that can result from a lack of accurate equipment design and the associated manufacturing processes are why Donald Dobert, president and COO of ATL Pharmaceutical/Medical, created his company’s New Product Development (NPD) Planning Process. The result of this process is a reliable product and a satisfied customer, which can only be accomplished when the equipment they’re using is properly operating as designed.
