One platform to turn molecules into medicine

Get therapeutics to patients faster using the Tempo Manufacturing Cloud

Meet Tempo® by Apprentice

Everything you need to make the therapies of the future, today

Tempo is the intelligent, all-in-one manufacturing solution for life sciences. It’s a cloud-based platform that works seamlessly across all stages of drug production - replacing your patchwork of disconnected systems.

Designed around the needs of scientists, Tempo is built for speed and flexibility. Unlike on-premise systems, it allows resource definitions, master recipes, and production data to be shared instantly across teams – making the tech transfer process quick and easy.

Tempo transforms how teams work in your facility. With wearable, mobile and desktop devices, operators use AR, AI, and voice recognition to execute their procedures accurately, every time.

A catalyst from discovery to delivery

Tempo is designed to speed up the entire lifecycle of drug production

Pre-Clinical Stage

When your drugs and processes are still in an experimental phase, Tempo is flexible and can be configured to any changes in your work without relying on software engineers.

Tempo helps you manage and test samples and easily integrates with your other lab systems. It also provides real-time tracking and trending of quality indicators – like CPPs and CQAs – allowing you to quickly understand effects on your process and adapt.

Together they allow you to develop and implement a Quality by Design approach at speed, so your product and process are ready faster.

Clinical Stage

When your product is set, Tempo helps you rapidly iterate to get a ‘Golden Batch’ and capture the process and data you need to make that recipe repeatable at scale.

With Tempo’s unmatched flexibility, you can adjust any procedures still in-development while including programmable guardrails that prevent deviations and track exceptions within tolerance limits as your process matures.

You can also build recipes using parameter values that allow procedures to scale with batch size as you graduate to the commercial stage.

Commercial Stage

When both your product and processes are ready for full-scale manufacturing, our cloud-based system has already captured the data and process knowledge  needed to transfer tech to new teams and sites. 

Procedures that include voice, text, video and AR instructions ensure operators can execute right on the first try. Voice-to-text notes, and photo and video capture ensure operators can capture rich compliance data without having to slow down.

Our no-code integrations assist you in quickly standing up a new therapy with existing systems and IoT equipment integration prevents deviations from manual errors.

Fully manage the readiness of your materials, equipment, and locations so you’re never waiting on an input. Track how inputs are used or consumed in a batch so the status of your inventory is always up-to-date.

Continuous
  • Flexible and easily configurable to change with developing product and process.
  • Capture and trend data for real-time feedback as you develop and implement a ‘Quality by Design’ approach.
  • Built for the lab with ‘hands-free’ execution on headset and mobile and more holistic data capture with voice, photo, and video

Be ready for the next global disruption before it happens.

COVID19 was an unprecedented challenge for the pharma manufacturing industry. It prevented critical drugs from reaching patients and disrupted supply chains to manufacture new therapeutics at scale within months.

Apprentice helped customers keep production going in spite of pandemic restrictions – including maintaining on-time delivery of life-saving oncology drugs. We also helped to rapidly convert facilities and production lines to produce an estimated 370 million mRNA vaccine doses.

Can your supply chain withstand what’s coming next?
