78% of scientists see inventory management as the most important means of dealing with raw material cost fluctuations.

On average the lack of information and traceability costs the pharmaceutical industry billions of dollars in downtime, poor manufacturing quality, yield losses, inefficiencies, and manual labor.
Regulatory compliance is among the top challenges faced by supply chain and procurement organizations.
Chemical chain of custody & data integrity
01 / 05

Chain of custody is essential for knowing what was done, but there is a lot of work in writing down absolutely everything was done. What if it happened with no work at all?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

The user has to do nothing at all, and all the data is stored forever.

Finding out which other experiments used the same sodium chloride container used in an experiment 7 years ago is a few buttons away with no extra work. Or who all ordered things that same day. Or how many seconds before your solution being prepared was the pH probe last calibrated… and so on.

Realistically, maintaining the chain of custody requires individually tagging every container that arrives on site, then entering the data into the ELN (and CIM) every time a solution is prepared. The overheads of this would be considerable, and, in any case, most ELNs do not support such chain of custody features for chemicals.

Regulatory Adherence & Reporting
02 / 05

With a wide variety of chemicals found in laboratories, a thorough inventory check should be done at least once a quarter. What if your inventory updated automatically?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

LabMinds cloud has complete knowledge of everything that has been shipped to the site, as well as everything that has been consumed or discarded on-site.

This makes any report a simple matter of arithmetic.

Show More

Manual record-keeping and regulatory compliance are burdensome tasks.

Because of this, inventory checks are both expensive in time and not performed as frequently as they should be, which results in doubt among both users and regulators about their accuracy.

Inventory management
03 / 05

Guaranteeing a supply of consumables that have not gone bad due to time or inappropriate storage is made particularly difficult by attempts to avoid waste. What if none of that was a problem?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

LabMinds sophisticated inventory management system automatically tracks Revo usage and supply levels for each system and at each site.

The user does nothing and the pre-emptive supply will send a steady stream of fresh supplies before the inventory runs out.

This time there is no chance to focus on the controlled substances – the inventory checks have to go through everything.

A financial calculation has to decide the balance between spending money on inventory checks and wasting money on discarded materials excessive storage use.

Ordering materials
04 / 05

Industry estimate of each order incurs roughly €250 in overheads. This creates pressure toward larger orders, which can exacerbate the other inventory issues.

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

Literally no action required.

Show More

Balancing larger orders against more time spent checking inventory and more chemical waste results in a precarious balance.

Perhaps people are holding out too long before ordering to avoid the overheads and run out of a chemical, wasting a full day of potential research.

Or perhaps they spend an hour or two extra each week making sure they are on top of the inventory.

The only thing guaranteed is that money is being wasted somewhere.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
05 / 05

Good Manufacturing Practice is the standard for a lot of laboratories. It is infamous for its paperwork requirements. What if a machine could do all the paperwork for you?

  • With Revo
  • Without Revo

If integrated fully, Revo may allow you to automate ALL of the regulatory oversight for solutions. No more stack of formal SOPs. Instead, the SOP could be as simple as “use Revo for solutions”. Somewhat simpler, don’t you think?

Show More

The status quo reigns. Every solution has its own SOP that may or may not be up to date, and which can be very painful to change in the process environment.
