Lonza to Host New Webinar – “Adaptimmune: Implementing a Paperless QC Micro Laboratory”

Walkersville, MD (USA) / Basel (CH), 23 April 2019 – On 7 May 2019, Lonza will host a free 60-minute webinar during which Adaptimmune Therapeutics will explain their decision to move to a paperless QC microbiology laboratory. They will also describe the implementation of Lonza’s paperless MODA™ QC Micro Solution to streamline productivity and drive efficiencies. 

Processing large volumes of samples from multiple sources and managing the abundance of generated data can prove particularly challenging for QC microbiology laboratories. With increasing focus on the importance of data integrity and automation, many organizations are moving to paperless solutions to capture, process and manage information more efficiently and reduce the potential for errors commonly associated with paper-based processes. Paperless systems also allow for real-time access to data, enabling faster and more informed decisions.

Titled “Adaptimmune: Implementing a Paperless QC Micro Laboratory,” the webinar will be presented by Staci Williams, Senior Microbiologist at Adaptimmune. During the webinar she will discuss: 
  • Considerations driving the decision to implement a computerized system
  • Relevant regulatory requirements
  • The impact of the solution on QC processes
  • Benefits of the review-by-exception approach
  • How the system has streamlined environmental monitoring investigations
