Severe testing and safety regulations are responsible for ensuring superior product quality in the pharmaceutical industry. While the need for these directives is self-evident, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has recently confirmed that they do, at times, inhibit the adoption of cutting edge automation equipment and more innovative manufacturing practices. This slows the sector down and poses an important challenge – reconciling the pressure to innovate with strict industry regulations.
Despite these drawbacks, automation has been playing an essential role in the pharmaceutical sector for many years, especially in areas like medical ordering, dispensing, administration and inventory management. Compounding has also been hugely improved by automation and the rate of error has decreased to less than 10% in recent years.
