GE Healthcare launches automation software for cell therapy

Published: 16-May-2019

Software has been designed to fit specific requirements to incorporate the platform into existing software and hardware framework

GE Healthcare has built on its digital capabilities with the launch of Chronicle web application. The next generation development of my.Cryochain software now supporting the complete cell therapy workflow.

Chronicle automation software is a GMP compliant fit-for-purpose digital solution designed to optimise complex cell therapy process development and manufacturing. With real-time supply chain tracking, hardware performance monitoring, SMS or email alarms, and comprehensive electronic batch records, Chronicle automation increases efficiency while meeting regulatory compliance.

Olin Thomas, Manager of Stem Cell Processing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said: “Automation software provides our lab with a flexible digital solution that streamlines our workflow. Because the software was designed to fit our specific requirements, we have been able to incorporate the platform into our existing software and hardware framework for seamless integration.”

Chronicle automation software capabilities include:

  • A unified digital space that monitors all facility manufacturing operations and supply chain logistics with real-time data acquisition and notifications
  • Electronic batch records that trace every manufacturing step with automation to increase productivity, reinforce GMP compliance, and improve the security of patients’ samples through increased traceability
  • eSOPs designed for specific processes to manage deviations, promote adherence to protocol, and provide guidance to ensure sensitive patient cells are handled appropriately

Catarina Flyborg, General Manager of Cell and Gene Therapy at GE Healthcare, said: “The full potential of cell and gene therapies cannot be realised without comprehensive digital solutions that optimise manufacturing processes and can scale from process development to commercialisation.”

Built by cell therapy platform solution engineers, Chronicle software integrates with the full range of GE instruments as well as many third-party instruments and has been independently audited against GAMP5, 21 CFR Part 11, and EU Annex 11.
