Introducing New Digital Tools to Enhance Raw Material Verification

This webcast features: Antonia Guerra, Global Digital and Data Science Leader, Field & Safety Instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific™ This webinar presents the new virtual companion to the Thermo Scientific™ TruScan™ RM Handheld Raman Analyzer, the Virtual TruScan™ RM (VTR) App, which creates efficiencies in material identity verification. This first-of-its-kind digital tool puts the TruScan RM’s decision algorithm in the cloud and allows for method validation and spectral re-processing without the need for a physical sample. With the VTR app, wait…

Best Practices for Aseptic Sampling from Stainless Process Equipment

This webcast features: Bobbi Allen, Technical Expert, Aseptic Sampling, Sartorius Stedim Biotech Aseptic sampling from stainless process equipment is a regulatory requirement and can be accomplished in many ways. How samples are removed from the process stream and the containers you collect them into can have an impact not only on the integrity of the process but the accuracy and repeatability of the tests you are performing. Emerging technologies can streamline sample taking, minimize risk to process, and improve the…

A CDMO’s Perspective on the Development of Bioprocesses for Clinical Manufacturing Success

This webcast features: Nigel Shipston, Director, Program Design, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies A strategy for the development and scale of bioprocesses should be assessed at the earliest of stages. There are different challenges depending on the molecule and expression system. This webinar is designed to address some of the areas of consideration for successful development of bioprocesses for biologics and gene therapies. At the end of this webinar, you will be able to do a self-assessment to answer some critical questions:…

Case Study in Conducting Chemical Safety Assessments for Single- and Multi-Use Manufacturing Components

This webcast features: Dr. Sherry Parker, Senior Director, Regulatory Toxicology and Technical Services, WuXi AppTec Extractable and leachable studies of single- and multi-use manufacturing components should be followed up with a chemical safety assessment to understand the chemical risks based on the toxicity of the chemical, the dose and the exposure duration of the drug product, and the patient population for its intended use. This case study will illustrate considerations when conducting a chemical safety assessment, the pitfalls of having…

Aseptic Filling for Gene Therapies and Next-Generation Biologics Within Closed Robotic Workcells

This webcast features: Thomas Page, Ph.D, Vice President, Engineering and Asset Development, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies (FDB) sought to “close the loop” by keeping all upstream and downstream aseptic processing operations within closed systems. The missing part was downstream, where FDB implemented a closed robotic filling workcell for manufacturing gene therapies. Workcells solve long-standing problems with sterility assurance, containment, and process control in aseptic filling. The knowledge developed by FDB during its implementation and early use of a…

Systems Compliance: A Risk-Based Approach to Software Management

This webcast features: Martin Laferriere, Director, IT Systems Compliance, Avid Bioservices Software systems risk management and evaluations should be part of your validation process. It is possible to reduce testing by documenting your risk, actual use, regulation impact, evaluating vendor(s), etc. The approach to managing the risk evolves through audits and prior experience and can tailor the management and approach to system quality within each organizations. In my experience and observations, an efficient system risk management is essential, and it…

The Impact of Rapid Virus Quantification in the Development and Manufacture of Advanced Therapies

This webcast features: Antje Schickert, Product Manager, Virus Analytics, Sartorius Stedim Biotech Viral vectors, such as lenti- and adeno-associated viruses, are increasingly being used for the production of cell and gene therapies.  In-depth sample characterization and precise enumeration of total viral vectors is needed throughout the manufacturing process and particularly for the final formulation.  Learn how rapid accurate enumeration of the total virus provides timely information on titer leading to accelerated process development and increased efficiency of viral vector manufacturing.…
