Ensure compliance, optimize the supply chain, and automate your business securely
If you are a life science professional, chances are finance and operations needs are not your primary focus. But as a life science project evolves into a life science product and then into a life science business, these needs must be addressed. Finance and operations (such as supply chain management, human resources, etc.) are not the only challenge, but merging these needs with ensuring compliance with the FDA or other industry-specific regulations, your growing therapeutics, medical device, or biotech company can get stopped in its tracks. Rather than investing your energy into vaccine development, personalized medicine, or innovations that can literally change the world, your focus is split between supply chain, regulatory issues, system controls, expense management, safety infrastructure, etc.

Inventory control and quality compliance
In a heavily regulated environment, lot and serial traceability is critical. Argano enables you to track from source material through manufacturing and distribution leveraging radio frequency identification (RFID) and near field communication (NFC), to locate, and report on, items by barcode, serial number, and more. Whether you are manufacturing in-house or outsourcing, quality control is paramount. From quality tests, quality orders, and non-conformance reporting, we have you covered. We can help you maintain FDA (GxP) validation standards. From fulfillment and integration with 3PL and full EDI capabilities to FDA validation, Argano readies you for commercializing your products.
Security and compliance for when you go public
