Lonza and NNIT partner to speed up MES projects

Across the life sciences industry, pharma companies are seeking new ways to respond to the high agility required to produce complex products like personalized cancer treatment, cell and gene therapy and Covid-19 vaccines. Central to these efforts is the manufacturing execution system (MES), which allows pharma companies to adopt pharma 4.0 production and manage their data flows to expedite product release.

Now, Lonza Bioscience Informatics and NNIT have announced a cooperation to solve the familiar industry pain-point of time-consuming and costly MES implementation.

The partnership is intended to meet the demand in the life sciences industry for faster time-to-release and digitalization of pharma production and supply chain. Pharma companies are looking to optimize their production, with a focus on integration and automation. This requires easy transfer of data from systems and devices, so organizations can make more informed decisions and track key metrics across their manufacturing and QC processes.

“Lonza Bioscience Informatics is proud to partner with NNIT to bring a complete Pharma 4.0 solution to the life science industry. Our collaboration combines our flexible and scalable MODA™ platform with NNIT’s deep domain expertise and Accelerated Implementation Methodology to deliver a truly best-in-class experience for our GMP manufacturing customers,” says Dr. Orla Cloak, Global Director of Testing Solutions and Informatics at Lonza.

“Both companies are offering the right solutions for this approach – Lonza with their MODA™ Platform specialized for personalized medicine and NNIT with our MES Accelerated Implementation Methodology. This powerful combination has been tried and tested in numerous projects, where the digital transformation was brought to life in pharmaceutical production,” says Thomas Halfmann, Global Head Production & Laboratory at NNIT.
