Specialty Chemicals Manufacturer Uses Matrix Gemini LIMS to Improve Operational Efficiency


company: FAR Chemical

solution: Matrix gemini LIMS

Specialty chemicals manufacturer FAR Chemical adopted Matrix Gemini LIMS to improve the efficiency of its laboratory operations. Moving to a paperless approach has brought QC laboratory data into one place, significantly reducing the time taken to test and approve samples in the laboratory.
FAR Chemical manufactures a wide range of chemical compounds including pharmaceutical reagents and intermediaries, advanced polymers and catalysts and precursors for structural composites. Their products are used in the pharmaceutical, medical products, cosmetic and commercial markets, and range from simple raw materials to finished formulations to complex high-performance polymers. Configuring the LIMS in-house has allowed FAR Chemical to optimize the solution for their exact needs. Faster sample results from the QC laboratory has led to a more efficient operation for the business.

Challenges

  • Broad range of chemical products manufactured
  • Paper-based approach

Solution

Result

  • Fast approval of test results
  • Reduced administrative time
  • Costly hold times reduced in manufacturing plant
  • In-house configuration allows optimized future-proof LIMS

Efficiency of our QC laboratory has vastly improved. We rarely now have reactor vessels standing idle awaiting release of intermediate QC results before the next production steps.
