Camstar Announces Its Medical Device Suite v4.1

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 1, 2006— Camstar, the established leader in providing Enterprise Manufacturing Execution and Quality Systems for Life Sciences and other global manufacturers, today announced the release of its new Medical Device Suite(TM) v4.1. Powered by the company's InSite MES framework, Medical Device Suite further accelerates the implementation process for medical device and diagnostics manufacturers. It is the most widely used manufacturing system in the medical device and diagnostics industry, and Camstar's customers include most of the top medical device manufacturers - a number of whom are taking advantage of the Medical Device Suite v4.x family.

Medical Device Suite v4.1 offers the best of both worlds: Industry-specific out-of-the-box functionality plus business rules configurations (not coding). The solution features complete and easily retrievable manufacturing audit trail and electronic device history records, electronically managed specifications and procedures that eliminate human error in manufacturing, automatic detection and control of non-conforming material and test results, structured data for failure and root cause analysis, and a rapid implementation methodology.

Camstar has worked directly with its Life Sciences customers to determine what features will bring them the most benefit. According to AMR Research, these companies are very interested: "Manufacturers continue to execute strategies aimed at limiting manufacturing-related compliance liabilities and risk. The result is a reinvigorated market for MES systems that provides broad manufacturing visibility, audit trails, and early warning capabilities." (from AMR Research Report "MES Market Rides Perfect Storm Through $1B Barrier," Friday, June 17, 2005)

Specifically, Camstar's Medical Device Suite v4.1 includes enhancements to its flexible work-in-process tracking; lot and order dispatching; 21 CFR Part 11 electronic signatures; electronic procedures; operator training and certification; equipment maintenance; non-conformance management; label printing; retrieval of externally managed specification documents; and a number of frequently-requested standard reports. Standard, configurable user interfaces are 100% thin client, so no downloads are required on workstations. An updated Standard Validation Package accompanies all releases of Camstar's applications for regulated industries.

"At Camstar, we focus on customers deriving the most value in the shortest time," said Scott Jones, Vice President of Development at Camstar. "InSite and Medical Device Suite go beyond a services oriented architecture (SOA) and offer a true Manufacturing Services Architecture. It takes advantage of the best leading edge technologies such as web services, a flexible data model and configurable user interfaces, all of which dramatically reduce deployment and validation time."

Accompanying Medical Device Suite v4.1 is Rapid eDHR(TM) v4.1. Rapid eDHR comprises a subset of Medical Device Suite features which quickly impart electronic control and visibility to device history records.
