Darwin is their commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software solution designed specifically to support the complex testing, workflow and regulatory requirements of pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing quality control. Regulatory compliance. Complex testing. Batch-centric, non-continuous manufacturing processes. These challenges unique to the pharmaceutical industry have required drug companies to undergo lengthy, costly customization projects for the generic laboratory information management systems (LIMS) that are critical to the management and security of their data. And for the approximately 15 years it takes to bring a drug from discovery to market, data is the only asset a pharmaceutical company has.
