Manufacturing Technology Roadmap Tool
The biopharmaceutical industry challenges are to: increase speed; improve flexibility; and reduce the cost to supply a drug or therapy, Biopharm Services has supported the BioPhorum Operations Group (BioPhorum) by modelling manufacturing options to identify the cost drivers and potential of technology options to meet these challenges.
BioPhorum and Biopharm Services want to give access to the models and assumptions that were used to generate the results shown in the report: the Technology Roadmap for the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
From the manufacturing Technology Roadmap Tool, users can:
- View detailed outputs for baseline scenarios
- Interrogate and compare the options
- Access a set of benchmark baseline processes that represent an industry consensus for the first time
Quantitative computational models provide valuable insight in estimating the value of a technology or process innovation that would otherwise be difficult to predict: the BioSolve analysis tool was used to model the biopharmaceutical manufacturing scenarios. A consensus was agreed for the current state of the manufacturing for the following scenarios (baseline):
- Large Scale Stainless Steel Fed Batch
- Intermediate‐scale Single‐Use Perfusion
For those individuals and organisations that don’t use BioSolve, we are making a database of results and key assumptions available as a Manufacturing Technology Roadmap Tool. For those that have access to the BioSolve Process modelling platform, the actual batch SU and SS models are now available as downloads from BioSolve Central.
Future work will focus on examining the five year and 10 year views for these scenarios and will expand to cover additional scenarios.
