Racing Ahead – Pushing forward with Automated Bioproduction Units.

Come and see an automated biologics processing unit in operation at a one-day Symposium “Integrated Process Strategies For Regional Biopharmaceutical Supply” on March 28, 2023, Sedgefield, UK.

Looking back down the race circuit, the horses don’t seem to be moving quickly – until they come thundering past you, covering twice my height in one effortless stride. We can forget the many changes that have happened in the last 10 years in our industry and think that no progress is being made to enable access to lower-cost biologic drugs.

But in the recent response to the COVID pandemic all of those developments and platforms came into full racing view. Pick your horse – single-use technology, modular units, flexible facilities, faster analytics, broad geographical CMC experience, multiproduct CDMO’s, etc; they were all part of the race.

The course continues though – the supply of vaccines and other biologics needs to more resilient, more flexible in production – and many argue from the experience of the pandemic, that manufacturing technology and skills should be more distributed and regional.

Process automation, data acquisition from process lines, better real-time analytics, improved control strategies and vendor-agnostic platforms will all enable distributed manufacturing networks.

We1 will be holding a Symposium dedicated to technologies that enable Regional Biopharmaceutical Supply and we would love for you to attend and contribute.
Please follow us on LinkedIn to get the latest information on this.
We will be publishing more information in January.
