Advanced Manufacturing of Biologics

The biopharma industry is going through a transition. Continuous processing has been garnering much interest lately for production of biopharmaceutical products. Purported benefits include higher productivity (10-15X), significant shrinkage in facility footprint as well as equipment cost, and improved process control and consistency in product quality. This talk will address some of the major advancements that are taking place in manufacturing of biologics. Subtopics include continuous processing, real time monitoring of critical quality attributes, real time process control, process modeling, and big data analytics.
