WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Industries that significantly benefit from the Paperless Lab Academy congress include: Pharmaceutical, Lab Services, Biotech, Food & Beverage, Consumer Goods, Cosmetic, Chemical, Oil & Gas
People visiting us every year range from Laboratory Directors and Managers, Operational Excellence, IT Business Partners, QC, and QA Management, Research departments, and Manufacturing
Mark Newton comes over to Europe and offers a unique opportunity to get introduced to best practices
[PreCongress Academy Training - Monday April 20 from 14:00 to 18:00]
Attendees will know better about the critical issues to examine prior to purchase, how to use vendor information, both about quality of the vendor’s process and the software’s design. Participants will also know where they should perform testing, based on criticality of requirements, where to use vendor’s testing, and what controls will need to be developed during validation to deploy the system in a regulated environment.
Presenting: Isabel Muñoz-Willery Ph.D. & Roberto Castelnovo, owners & organizers at NL42 Consulting | Paperless Lab Academy
Isabel and Roberto are entrepreneurial persons involved in paperless laboratory processes projects. Coming from international managerial roles with strong domain knowledge in laboratory processes, laboratory automation, laboratory informatics, and project management, they launched their personal project, NL42 consulting, by 2012.
