Yokogawa Electric began offering the environmental monitoring system "OpreX Environmental Monitoring System" (hereinafter, OpreX EMS) for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in October 2020. OpreX EMS, which was launched simultaneously domestically and overseas, is based on customers' needs, such as regulatory compliance, diversification of operational risks, and high usability. When asking the person in charge about the development history and features of the product, it was found that it is a new solution that meets the company's business vision.
YOKOGAWA aspires to establish Smart GMP manufacturing facilities that provide consistent quality and supply while eliminating industrial waste, enhancing productivity and always using high-quality component parts and materials.
By equipping SMARTDAC+ with the advanced security features option "/AS", it meets the strict requirements of the U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and supports DI in compliance with PIC/S and ALCOA+ by WHO, MHRA and FDA.
By adopting the environmental monitoring system, we were able to create an environment in the cell storage facility that allows for quality control, maintaining a high level of safety.
