Over 25 years of
PRODUCT MIX AVOIDANCE and commingle prevention
Part identification solutions play a vital role in preventing mixed orders as well as ensuring tight quality standards. VEI inspection systems have been deployed for nearly 3 decades performing part and Label ID for many of the worlds largest medical device OEM’s.
Packaging and Label Verification
As most in the medical device manufacturing world know, most recalls are due to labeling. Due to this fact, VEI has pioneered several solutions for label and kit component verification for complete packaging verification.
Software Based Process monitoring
Today many manufacturing facilities lack the necessary infrastructure for process monitoring. With the introduction of VEI’s ProcMon software this issue was changed. VEI’s prorietary software works as a middleman between plant infrastructure (ERP, DB, Label Managment, QMS etc.) and plant workstations and capital equipment. With VEI bridgeing the gap between these assets, the customer can finally utilize one solution as a hub to track, enforce, standardize and record plant processes.
VEI’s automation inspection systems interface with a number of automated packaging processes providing robust quality control & protection measures.
Custom Inspection Systems and Software
VEI has extensive experience in designing custom suited solutions for advanced quality and process applications.
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.
Common Clients Include
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.
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.
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.
VEI offers several solutions which can assist with FDA requirements concerning the control of materials, labeling, reporting, and process controls.
Offering a variety of quality based solutions for data logging, process monitoring, and including printer label verification, pill integrity, quantity, color, reporting & ERP integration.
