Going Paperless from Lab to Plant

The drive to “go paperless” is a strategic initiative that offers demonstrable operational benefits in improving productivity, reducing cycle times and leveraging experimental and operational data along the entire research-development-manufacturing continuum. This technology brief reviews recent initiatives by science-based organizations to develop and deploy software that spans the lab-to-commercialization lifecycle using data standardization/harmonization technology and electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) to streamline technology transfer. Organizations adopting these proven informatics solutions can experience: Enhanced productivity Faster time to market Improved compliance More…

The “early health” Vision

New approaches to vaccine production are needed. GE Healthcare Life Sciences contributes to the “early health” vision by supporting advances in vaccine development through innovative manufacturing solutions that help to shorten time-to-market, increase output, and assure quality.

Preclinical Immunogenicity Assessment

Protein therapeutics can potentially elicit immune responses when administered in humans. These antidrug antibodies could result in partial or complete loss of drug efficacy and other complications that have the potential to cause severe adverse effects in the patient. In this webcast, Philippe Stas, Head of Applied Protein Services at Lonza, discusses the benefits of preclinical immunogenicity assessment, including:

• Early-stage Risk Assessment
• Improved Quality and Safety of Drugs
• Reduced Attrition Rate in Drug Development Programs

View this webcast to learn more about managing drug-induced immune responses at the earliest possible stage to produce safer and more cost-effective protein therapeutics.

Quality, Speed and Flexibility by Design

Accelerating the path to new biomanufacturing capacity typically corresponds with increased costs and the risk of lower quality. Overcoming these compromises requires a holistic QbD-based rethinking of how biomanufacturing is approached. By rethinking biomanufacturing equipment, facility design and services, Xcellerex has achieved dramatic improvements in deployment time, while also reducing capital investment, operating costs, and improving overall quality and compliance. This webcast discusses the advantages of the FlexFactory® Biomanufacturing Platform, such as:

• Multi-product, simultaneous manufacturing
• Open platform for any bioprocessing technology/process control
• 70% reduction on time to build/validate to GMP ready (9mo.)
• And more.

Join Parrish Galliher, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Xcellerex, as he provides an in-depth look at the technology behind Xcellerex’s FlexFactory Biomanufacturing Platform.

Technology Transfer of CMC Activities for MAb Manufacturing

As monoclonal antibody products succeed and advance through development, their manufacturing requirements change. The probability of a smooth and successful technology transfer process depends on several factors. Sending and receiving parties must be well aligned in expectations, which can be facilitated by early and detailed planning and communications.

To help companies developing MAb products, BioProcess Technology Consultants recently published a comprehensive report outlining the complex technical, regulatory and strategic chemistry, manufacturing and control (CMC) activities necessary to successfully advance new MAbs from discovery to first-in-human clinical trials and the market as quickly and economically as possible. Read this informative white paper to learn more.

Approach to Validation & Implementation of Single-Use Systems

While many of the reasons to move to single-use systems have been well defined over the last few years, there are still concerns with the lack of information regarding validation and implementation of the systems. In this on-demand educational webcast, Christopher Mach of Pall Life Sciences details the step-by-step approach to validation and implementation of single-use systems in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. You’ll learn about:

• A Summary of the Regulatory Position Regarding Validation
• Validation Program Key Points
• Pall Approach to Organizing and Operating an Appropriate Validation Program
• Pall Validation Capabilities

Join Mach as he utilizes a core study of extractables/leachables using the Pall AllegroTM Single-Use System to address industry concerns and help illustrate the necessary components of a successful validation program.

Increased Selection Criteria for Production Media

Operators of biotechnology facilities are facing an increase in selection criteria for production media – new ICH and FDA imperatives, new analytics and monitoring, platform production initiatives and more. In this on-demand webcast, William Whitford of Thermo Scientific discusses:

• Reasons for the Increase in Selection Criteria
• Particular Criteria Discovered by Thermo Fisher Scientific
• Application of how Criteria can be Resolved

Join Whitford as he introduces two studies performed at Thermo Scientific that demonstrate how selection criteria can be solved and resolved to provide transparency and ease for biotechnology and bio production operators.
