Life Sciences Solutions and Services

How do you measure success? In the life sciences industries, success depends on quality, validation, regulatory compliance, product safety, efficiency and profitability. Insufficient control and bottlenecks, however, can negatively impact your manufacturing processes. System enhancements can improve your profitability, but only if you avoid setbacks related to overtaxed resources, schedule slippage and unrealistic project estimates. Process analytical technology (PAT) practices have made improvements easier to implement, but once a process is working and validated, the steps involved with changes are complex. Forward-thinking companies who are proactive and rise to meet these and other challenges will benefit in the short term. The ability to improve processes and embrace smart manufacturing technology, even in a regulated and validated environment, is key to sustainability and future success.

MAVERICK Technologies® identifies key operations and improves performance for greater safety, efficiency and overall profitability. We provide biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing consulting and can work with you to implement the right solutions that support your process, helping you produce your drug and device products better. For example, we can help you maximize throughput, improve asset reliability and ensure quality and regulatory compliance.

All our solutions comply with 21 CFR Part 11 requirements, GAMP V Model and ASMTE standards for a range of capabilities, and we can deliver the full benefits of PAT, Factories of the Future including single use technology (SUT), and serialization concepts to reduce cost per drug. With our extensive expertise, we can support your team and provide a complete business perspective — making improvements from the plant floor to the boardroom to optimize performance at every level.

MAVERICK’s customers in the life sciences and biotech industries have benefited from our industrial automation, enterprise integration, system migration, consulting, commissioning and sustaining services.
