MilliporeSigma Launches Complete Data Traceability in Microbial QC

  • M-Trace® Electronic Test Record Software offers digital cleanroom-friendly solution for sterility testing
  • Digitizes pharmaceutical microbial quality control workflows
  • Enables complete, real-time, comprehensive data traceability and regulatory compliance, reducing deviations and human error

MilliporeSigma, the U.S. and Canada Life Science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, a leading science and technology company, has launched its M-Trace® Software & Mobile App, a comprehensive data tracking solution to digitize sterility testing. The software increases overall process safety by automatically documenting data for every step of the testing process. This reduces the likelihood of deviation, false positive results, and the possibility of human error.

“Microbiological quality control labs are critical to ensuring the safety of sterile medicine. Here, the consequences of noncompliance can be very serious,” said Jean-Charles Wirth, Head of Science & Lab Solutions for the Life Science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. “Our job is to offer the solution that ensures drugs are safe and brought to market to the patients who need them the most — so data traceability is essential. Digital innovations like M-Trace® bring us one step closer to making the ‘Lab of the Future’ a reality.”

Sterility Testing is the last step of the quality control workflow used by the pharmaceutical industry. It ensures that products such as vaccines, ophthalmic solutions, chemotherapies, and other injectables are 100% free of contaminants. Microbial contamination can expose patients to pathogens/toxins that cause serious metabolic harm or lead to death. Another possible effect is drug degradation resulting in reduced potency. M-Trace® allows drug manufacturers to mitigate safety concerns by notifying of any errors spotted during the process. Furthermore, it provides a complete digital solution for documentation compliance. M-Trace® generates comprehensive reports that enhance data analytics to track trends and ease investigations into out-of-specification results.

Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany is invested in enabling the “Lab of the Future” through innovative workflows to revolutionize scientific research and development. To extract insights from vast amounts of data, solutions are becoming more automated, more autonomous and more continuous. Some of these technologies include AI-powered software pieces focused on digital chemistry and drug discovery, like AIDDISON™ AI powered drug discovery software and SYNTHIA™ Retrosynthesis Software. Other tools digitize processes that have always been manual, like the Digital Reference Materials ChemisTwin™ platform or cell counting systems like MilliCell® DCI and Scepter™ 3.0. With the addition of M-Trace®, our company continues to support scientists at all stages with solutions that can increase efficiency, safety and success rates of delivering new, safer therapies for patients.
