whatwedoNewage Pharma offers a system of complex project management, including recommendations at a step of the search and estimation the idea to a step «ready-to-start production facilities» and subsequent follow-up. Pharmaceutical engineering is involved in the conception, design, scale-up, manufacturing, labeling and packaging processes in the conversion of chemical and biological materials into valuable pharmaceuticals.

The key to success is in the effective management of the project and updating the information about pharmaceutical engineering and closely related industries. Methods of technology transfer refer to the processes of successful progress from drug discovery with application of flexible logic models, up to the clinical trials and ultimately full-scale commercialization.

Scope includes review of the acceptability of the stability study of the finished product, determination of action plan in case of failure of stability studies

Engineers provide technical support to enable technology transfer and address technical issues with local manufacturing groups. These groups are also involved in process engineering and work to improve and expand existing pharmaceutical processing systems. Our capabilities in technology transfer projects include API development and manufacturing, formulation development, analytical development and testing services, and stability.

2Peter Senge (1990:3) described learning organizations as:

«…organizations where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning to see the whole together.»

 

Seeing the «whole» as regards GxP is imperative and will keep organization on track with existing rules as well as emerging ones.

Companies implementing GxP are performing a regulated process that is most likely linked to a predicate rule or guidance and should be covered by policy and/or specific documented procedures (a.k.a. SOPs). Newage Pharma has an extensive expertise and provides services for qualified staff recruitment, training and coaching. The advantages of cooperation include:

  • Customization to fit individual customer’s needs
