Blaze Systems Releases New Version of BlazeStability Shelf Life Study Product Available as a SasS Offering.

March 24 , 2014 . Newark, DE. Today Blaze Systems announced a new release of its BlazeStability shelf life management software now available as a SaaS (Software as a Service) offering including end-to-end management of the entire study process, including storage and analytical functions. This development makes automation of the complete organization and execution of shelf life studies available to labs of all sizes, with a sea-change reduction in the entry barrier to getting on-line.


Credible and sufficient demonstration of shelf life is an increasingly critical element of product offerings, especially in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries, where FDA scrutiny of procedural soundness is on the rise. First of all, justifying stated shelf life is critical from a legal and ethical standpoint. Second, there can be a substantial stake in product and package development to improve shelf life as a product advantage.


Shelf life studies involve a data and procedurally intensive process that must pass muster in all its phases, including planning, storage, analytical, and reporting, and there are substantial penalties for errors along the way which can jeopardize the validity of a long term study and lead to the loss of a significant investment.


BlazeStability offers a complete shelf life testing package that manages, track, enforces and executes all steps of the process. This includes:


·         Positive identification and tracking of all materials with bar code labeling

·         Quantity management to insure sufficient material to complete testing schedule including allowances for retest

·         Elimination of tedious and error prone manual data management tasks.

·         No missed draws with flexible draw scheduling for maximum laboratory efficiency

·         Automated interim and final reporting – reduced labor in preparing reports

·         All historical information available for summaries and query to take maximum advantage of history

·         Early warning of abnormalities and adjustable protocols to salvage studies

·         Seamless integration between storage and analytical operations

·         Management of all critical elements in the process, including scheduling, storage, instruments, methods, personnel, reagents and standards, documents, statistics and more.
