SAN DIEGO, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software, announced today that Cambridge Isotope Laboratories, Inc. (CIL) is deploying the Accelrys Laboratory Execution System (LES) and three applications within the Accelrys Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to enhance quality control and regulatory compliance as the company experiences increased demand for its products. The full enterprise deployment of these applications, which are a part of the Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite, is progressing well following the successful completion of a comprehensive pilot. The pilot phase resulted in a 28 percent improvement in productivity or test execution time and a 78 percent reduction in data review times, ultimately enabling CIL to improve lab processing time by 40 percent.
"As a world leader in the production of stable isotope applications, CIL understands that developing and commercializing innovative products in an efficient, cost-effective and compliant manner requires an entirely new approach to the lab-to-commercialization process," said Ken Rapp, managing director of Accelrys' analytical, development, quality and manufacturing solutions group. "By connecting lab-to-plant workflows and taking a process- and execution-centric approach to LIMS implementations, CIL benefits from the flexibility needed to manage its rapidly growing business and the highly efficient process execution required to produce quality cGMP products."
CIL develops, produces and markets stable, non-radioactive isotopes and chemical components for the specialty chemicals, research products, environmental standards and clinical research industries. Producing products that meet cGMP requirements is essential to its business. GMP compliance is an expensive and time-consuming practice, and with customer demand driving increasing production, CIL's manual processes were no longer keeping pace with the company's needs.
