About Us

 

 

Founded in 1986, VEI was born out of unbridled passion to meet the unmet and emerging needs faced by medical manufacturers.  At a time when manufacturing processes were advancing at an ever-increasing rate and FDA regulation continued to expand it was clear there was a need to protect against the inevitable product mix.

Since our infancy, we've grown with FDA regulations by systematically designing solutions with Title 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and validation in mind.  Throughout our history, VEI has expanded from providing solutions based purely on product mix avoidance to a comprehensive suite of quality centered solutions.  Our offerings consistently reduce cost & mitigate risk, creating a powerful package making justification common sense.  In fact, our clients repeatedly tell us that our technology has successfully prevented many CAPAs and recalls.

At VEI we're passionate about living with purpose and wholeheartedly believe that by protecting our clients and their patients we're making a meaningful difference.  In an unforgiving industry where there's no room for mistakes we've built our business on dedication to our customer and their success.  This is what we're all about, we're customer centered, market driven innovators who develop robust solutions where others only see problems.  We're going to continue to question the status-quo, develop solutions for the needs of the industry & play a critical role in advancing medical manufacturing for the better.

Implantable Devices

Implantable device manufacturers face many challenges in the current landscape. As Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) are continually refined and evolve each change offers new benefits but also presents unique challenges. Additionally, operator subjectivity and the possibility for human error have continually presented problems for manufacturers.

Throughout our history VEI has developed solution based products to meet the industry’s current needs. Product mix, quality defects, software discrepancies, and mislabeling are a few of the problems VEI’s product lineup addresses. Our solutions employ a variety of technology to successfully mitigate risk while further reducing cost. Common medical device sectors include orthopedics, ortho recon, maxillofacial, spine, & dental.

Cardiovascular Implants

Comparable to much of the medical manufacturing community the cardiovascular industry faces increasing regulation and compliance measures both locally and abroad. Furthermore, in an industry where one mistake is one too many the demands placed on manufacturers continue to grow. Challenges are in part due to increasing pressure to further miniaturize devices, material reduction, and implementation of improved manufacturing methods. With these challenges quality checks can become increasingly difficult and as such the absence of all errors is simply not realistic. VEI offers both custom and off the shelf packages designed to meet these needs.

Biologics

The biologics industry faces complex manufacturing processes in part due to fermentation, aseptic processing, storage & testing requirements. Hence, it’s understood that biologics are more expensive than simple chemically fabricated drugs. Additionally, due to biologics intended use often dictating FDA classification drugs can fall into categories of both a medical device and biologics. This results in extensive quality control measures focusing heavily on the drug’s assays and the like. Nevertheless, few systems adequately protect against drug, label, or other product mix situations. At VEI we provide solutions to meet this need and mitigate risk.

Clinical Trials

VEI offers several solutions which can assist with FDA requirements concerning the control of materials, labeling, reporting, and process controls.

Pharma

Offering a variety of quality based solutions for data logging, process monitoring, and including printer label verification, pill integrity, quantity, color, reporting & ERP integration.

 

 

SOLUTIONS

 
 

PRODUCT MIX AVOIDANCE

Part identification solutions play a vital role in preventing product mix as well as ensuring tight quality standards.  The stock platform for this system is highly configurable and performs all inspections in less than twenty (20) seconds.      

 

Packaging/Label Inspections

VEI provides several label inspection platforms designed to meet the needs of packaging, quality & process departments.

Process monitoring

Software for all systems is written in-house, with the majority of product features coming as the result of customer feedback.  This software is highly configurable and very user friendly.  The user may configure the software to shut down equipment, require maintenance, log events, allow users to log data readings, and much more.  All data is recorded and able to be recalled as needed for audits or other record keeping requirements.  

 

 

Automation Inspections

VEI’s automation inspection systems interface with a number of automated packaging processes providing robust quality control & protection measures.

 

Custom

VEI has extensive experience in designing custom suited solutions for advanced quality and process applications.
