LabVantage to supply lab information management system to Walter Reed unit

The army research institute plans to use the pharma system to support vaccine production


The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research has awarded LabVantage Solutions, Inc. a contract to supply its LabVantage Pharma laboratory information management system (LIMS) to support Covid-19 and other vaccine production programs at the institute’s pilot bioproduction facility.

The web-based system provides out-of-the box workflows and functionality to manage pharmaceutical manufacturing, including batch management, stability testing, consumables management, environmental monitoring, barcode label printing, and instrument calibration, certification and maintenance.

Its pre-validated and pre-configured system reduces deployment time and costs compared to traditional LIMS, according to the company.

LabVantage, headquartered in Somerset, NJ with offices around the globe, provides such services as system installation and setup, individualized methods and specifications, and personnel training.

The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, dating back to 1893, works alongside civilian researchers, medical professionals and military personnel to develop and test products that ultimately will reduce the impact of dangerous and debilitating diseases. It has developed many vaccines and drugs in use today by military and civilian medicine around the world.
