Effortlessly ensure safe and compliant controlled substance handling globally

Chemical and Pharmaceutical companies routinely work with controlled substances and as such must actively ensure they are remaining compliant within today’s dynamic international legislative environment. This becomes even more complex as more companies globalize and externalize, synthesizing, storing and transporting numerous compounds across multiple geographies.

BIOVIA and Scitegrity, Ltd. have teamed up to develop the Controlled Substance Compliance Service (CSCS) Module for BIOVIA CISPro. CSCS enables scientists to screen their chemicals inventory for controlled substances and their corresponding regulations by their chemical structure, adds it to the BIOVIA CISPro entry for future reference, and updates as legislations change. Scientists can quickly reference the specific legislation pertaining to their substance and reference what related structures qualify with a few clicks. It removes the need to spend hours digging through the thousands of pages of regulations that surround controlled substances, allowing scientists to focus on science.

In this webinar, the BIOVIA experts will discuss how CSCS ensures that teams can always take the proper care when handling controlled substances across their entire organization. Also, we will show that by leveraging the powerful data framework of BIOVIA CISPro, organizations can effortlessly make controlled substance compliance a part of their daily workflows, making regulatory audit worries a thing of the past.

Join us and learn how to:
• Increase efficiency of your materials and laboratory workflows
• Reduce your chemical inventory costs and waste
• Improve compliance through automation of an integrated system
• Eliminate business risks with better oversight and reliability
