Challenge

In 2016 a top 10 global pharma customer required a critical “specialty” media for one of their projects. They were able to successfully formulate it and make it in-house but did not have a team to manage and produce it full-scale. Attempts to outsource manufacturing to multiple media companies had failed to produce consistent results.

Action

Due to our success in managing their San Diego media kitchen, ManagedLab Services successfully undertook the new responsibility of producing these critical solutions.

THE BOTTOM LINE METRICS

MANAGEDLAB MAINTAINS A 96.5% LOT PASS RATE!

The general Media Kitchen currently maintains stock of 64 different Media, buffer and antibiotic solutions. The specialty Media program maintains stock of 29 large volume media solutions and buffer solutions.

Outcome

Production was immediately successful and the ManagedLab support team continues to produce the media for this scaling program today.

New Kitchen

ManagedLab started a media kitchen for the client as a test to determine ability.

BETA Test

ManagedLab begins beta testing for the speciality media program, keeping lot sizes small.

Full Scale
