SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the latest generation of its Automated Compliance Engine for Agilent Enterprise Edition compliance services. The updated software enables delivery of even more reliable, secure and cost-efficient analytical instrument qualification services to the pharmaceutical industry. As a result, Agilent Enterprise Edition is able to get systems in cGMP-compliant labs validated and back into production faster.
Agilent Enterprise Edition delivers compliance services that are harmonized across techniques for a broad range of analytical instruments and computer systems from multiple vendors. It provides a selection of equipment qualification plans, tailored equipment qualification reports, and flexible test specifications to accommodate standard operating procedures. The new compliance engine streamlines electronic review and approval, from the approved qualification plan to a configurable, secure, and digitally signed final report that is audit-ready and consistent across the entire enterprise. It also enables users to run compliance tests on multiple instruments simultaneously, further reducing downtime.
“Enterprise Edition ensures that Agilent compliance services are applied uniformly across laboratories, geographies and analytical techniques, independent of manufacturer,” said Gary Powers, Agilent compliance program manager. “Innovation is key to making sure Agilent remains the No. 1 worldwide compliance partner. Whether for product research, development, testing, manufacturing, or quality control, Enterprise Edition offers complete compliance services for the pharmaceutical lab.”
Last year, an independent survey of 350 respondents in North America and Europe ranked Agilent as the No. 1 choice for general lab compliance services and instrument qualification—for the fifth consecutive time. (The survey has been completed five times since 1995.)
