ValGenesis, Fremont, Calif, has implemented a paperless validation life cycle management system within the company’s software application for plasma collection centers.

Companies in the blood services industry must ensure that their operations are in compliance with standards and regulations established by several agencies, including the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB), and the FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. FDA has recently enhanced its enforcement activities by putting in place stricter requirements—such as inspecting facilities every 2 years—as well as by ordering recalls and taking legal actions.

The ValGenesis system supports all types of validation processes related to plasma donation centers, as it provides centralized validation life cycle management, workflow management, and reporting for critical business processes. By consolidating redundant systems and eliminating paper-based manual operations, ValGenesis enables blood banks to achieve ‘best in class’ results. Further, ValGenesis ensures that data created, modified, and stored within the application are capable of passing internal and regulatory audits while improving the overall efficiency of the validation program.

We are very pleased to offer our validation life cycle management system to organizations that must meet stringent validation requirements in the blood industry.”
