Benefits experienced when engaging expert Pharmaceutical Calibration Teams
- Compliance: Peace of mind that the service is delivered to the required standard. Expert calibration ensures that product or batch quality remains high and consistent over time
- Expert Teams: LotusWorks employs 650+ full time staff, 77 dedicated Instrumentation & Calibration experts, 7 of which are ISO:17025 accredited calibration laboratory based. The company also employs 14 instrumentation apprentices and 10 graduates working across 12 manufacturing client sites.
- Calibration Optimisation Programme (COP): LotusWorks COP allows clients to maximise profit whilst minimising the risks associated with; product quality, identity, strength, purity, and patient safety, as well as the impact on environmental and business efficiencies. This approach firstly identifies what requires calibration, and secondly helps to determine through statistical analysis, when it needs to be calibrated
Vast Improvements in key areas of Calibration programme
“We have enjoyed a vast improvement in key areas of the calibration program such as compliance, turnaround times and cost reduction. LotusWorks have been successfully audited by our quality department to an ISO 17025 standard on two separate occasions and achieved high scores in both. Since our partnership with LotusWorks we have found them to be accountable, professional and compliant to the highest standards. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services”
