Data management strategy is paramount in pharmaceutical development. Many labs will have some form of laboratory information management system (LIMS), while production facilities have a level of software control, to help with quality control and data acquisition, enabling lab technicians to track key data points associated with equipment, experiments, recipes, samples, workflows, and so on. One specific example would be the optimal monomer ratio for PLGA-based microspheres. Any compositional variations could alter drug release rates with severe implications, including the risk of regulatory non-compliance. It is pivotal, therefore that scientists monitoring and controlling critical information in microsphere preparation are well-versed in robust data management disciplines.
