BIND Biosciences develops targeted therapeutics based upon their novel polymeric nanoparticle drug delivery technology platform. It is the first company in the United States to install the PCS 7 Lab hardware and software.

With startup services provided by system integrator Optimation Technology, Inc., the phased automation implementation will help BIND Biosciences drive process development as well as monitor and control manufacturing operations.

"The flexibility and expandability of the PCS 7 Lab system will allow us to grow economically and efficiently through all three phases of the implementation," said Jeff Hrkach, BIND Biosciences Vice President of Pharmaceutical Sciences. "The system has all the tools we need to collect and manage our data as well as protect our intellectual property."

The PCS 7 Lab configuration, designed for laboratory and process development research and development applications, is based on Siemens Simatic PCS 7 Box. The UL certified system includes a preinstalled rack of I/O modules that can be easily reconfigured to fit any size or type of laboratory environment.

"This partnership with BIND gives Siemens the opportunity to help BIND bring drugs to market faster, " said Glenn Restivo, Siemens Life Sciences Industry Manager. "We adhere to the Design of Experiment and Quality by Design philosophies that build quality into every step of the process - from laboratory experimentation through every phase of manufacturing."

The implementation phase of the PCS 7 project is underway and focuses on basic experimentation and data collection. A second phase is under consideration for cataloging and organizing experimental data. Phase three, also under consideration, will include Siemens Sipat for Process Analytical Technology (PAT), Interspec for specification management and the R&D Suite for Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN).
