Improving medicine safety in the animal health industry

Eurotherm collaboration helped provide an environmental monitoring system in compliance with data integrity guidelines and GMPs.

Environmental monitoring system helps improve animal medicine safety

Just like pharmaceuticals for human use, animal medicines must be produced in compliance with regulations and guidelines, such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11, Data Integrity ALCOA+ and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

When a global manufacturer or veterinary medicines needed an environmental monitoring systems (EMS) for monitoring freezers, refrigerators and incubators in its new production facilities, the Eurotherm EMS solution was chosen as part of a collaboration of best-of-breed suppliers.

Key Challenges

Separating the EMS from the BMS and meeting GMPs

The end customer was looking for a Building Management System (BMS) and EMS solution:

  • Segregate the EMS from the BMS (in line with latest ISPE guidance)
  • Monitoring and alarming of critical process parameters (CPPs) (temperature, relative humidity (RH), differential pressure (DP) and calculated DP)
  • Monitoring approximately 500 input/output points across three buildings
  • Meet GMPs based on a Pharma 4.0 approach
  • Integration into the company’s existing operations process system, AVEVA System Platform

Solution

High availability system architecture

Designed using a 'zero downtime' approach, with features to enhance operational performance.

A successful collaboration

The project was carried out through a collaboration of best-of-breed suppliers, including Eurotherm, a third-party control system integrator, sustainable engineering firm, and Schneider Electric as the BMS provider.

Eurotherm was chosen to supply the EMS equipment to the system integrator based on our experience and knowledge of the Life Science industry’s requirements, combined with innovative technology including Digital Engineered Solutions (DES).

“All collaborators appreciated our expertise and were grateful for our input to help define the EMS specification to achieve the best solution for the end customer.”
