Lonza Agrees To Acquire MODA, A Global Leader In Paperless Quality
Wednesday, 12 May 2010 00:00

Lonza Group Ltd announces that it has signed an agreement to acquire MODA Technology Partners ("MODA"), a software company that provides paperless quality control solutions. The acquisition will strengthen the Rapid Testing Solutions platform of Lonza's Bioscience division by adding a complementary product offering for quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) organizations in the life-science industry. MODA's technology platform offers automated data collection, ondemand analytics and workflow visualization of regulated manufacturing processes including environmental monitoring, utility testing, and product testing. The acquisition is expected to close during the second quarter of 2010.

MODA's mobile data acquisition platform eliminates inefficiencies and reduces error rates inherent with paper-based systems in regulated manufacturing operations.

Benefits include:

  • Reduction of monitoring costs
  • Increased data monitoring accuracy
  • Robust reporting and trending for meaningful analysis
  • Improved regulatory compliance

At the same time, MODA technology enables companies to advance their green initiatives by reducing and eventually removing the need for paper-based, laborintensive quality control programs. MODA's offerings include MODA-EM™ (Paperless Environmental Monitoring), MODA-VIP™ (Visual Intelligence Portal) and MODA-FDC™ (Field Data Capture) – components that help to bridge the gap between quality assurance and production processes.

"MODA's technology provides an excellent fit with our recently expanded informatics platform, building upon our industry-leading WinKQCL® endotoxin and analysis software" explains Doug Danne, Head of Lonza's Rapid Testing Solutions business unit. "We are very excited about our partnership with MODA, because we share in our approach to develop innovative, automated tools that will enhance our customers' ability to manage risk, improve efficiencies and help ensure final product quality."

"For years, Lonza and MODA have maintained a common vision for a comprehensive automated quality informatics platform, making this a perfect match for our customers, partners and both of our organizations alike", says MODA's CEO, Mike Desiderio. "We have always believed that the ability to use quality data as a proactive and responsive agent in the improvement of regulated manufacturing would mark a positive turning point in the state of the industry. In partnership with Lonza, this ideal is now a reality."

Lonza was an early adopter of MODA's technology platform in its own manufacturing operations and will now expand deployment across all plants globally. Lonza evaluated and selected MODA-EM™ for its Walkersville, Maryland (USA) facility as a result of its company-wide Lean Six Sigma initiative to eliminate waste and reduce lead and labor time. The experience with MODA further demonstrates Lonza's unique ability to understand the critical needs of a quality control environment.
