GMP Manufacturing Workflows

Your workflow is designed to efficiently transform raw material into a final product in a repeatable, traceable, and compliant way. Our team of experts understands the requirements needed to establish a compliant facility that results in products with the desired quality attributes. PV has decades of experience qualifying and validating Pilot, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), and final production lines for small and large molecules and vaccines using batch and continuous manufacturing processes. From the moment a component arrives at your facility until the final product leaves your shipping department, the team at PV is by your side to assist with all your CQV needs.

Innovation

The Pharma industry is always evolving, and at PV, we keep our team updated with state-of-the-art technology, process, and techniques. PV has proven to be a thought leader and expert in novel technologies being adopted by FDA-regulated industries.

mRNA Vaccine Rollout 

A recent and critical role was assisting in the successful rollout of the mRNA vaccine with one of the largest pharmaceuticals manufacturers in the country. The speed and precision needed to create and produce billions of mRNA vaccines in just a short nine-month period almost seemed impossible. By collaborating with the manufacturer, PV was able to streamline processes by validating procedures and equipment in real time saving hundreds of hours at the end of the validation process when the vaccine was ready to be distributed. The rollout of the mRNA vaccine was made possible by seamless collaborations, across multiple companies, and across countries, made “Project Light Speed” a success.   

Smart Factories for an evolving industry 

The next evolution in manufacturing concepts, Pharma 4.0, or “Smart Factories” as they are often called, is here to stay. PV is proud to be out in front leading top manufacturers to deploy Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV). 

By pushing our team to be innovative thinkers, we are continually looking for new approaches to offer our clients a more efficient validation process without losing sight of regulations and policies of the regulatory authorities or quality protocols provided by our client.
