How Digital Transformation Supports Next-Generation Process Development and Biomanufacturing

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Friday, November 22, 2019

Across the biopharmaceutical industry, the transition from traditional constructs such as large stainless-steel factories, batch manufacturing and paper-based recording systems to modular facilities, single-use technologies, continuous manufacturing and electronic systems is picking up pace. It’s easy to see why: the benefits of greater agility and responsiveness for capacity planning, significantly reduced manufacturing costs and improved product quality speak for themselves. This is particularly important for the emerging field of advanced therapeutics such as cell and gene therapies. Yet despite all the scientific and technological advances, the issue of how to effectively manage data, workflows and knowledge across the development lifecycle remains a stumbling block.

Join this free webinar where experts will discuss what is needed to address the current industry challenges and transform the future of biomanufacturing, including:

  • What does digital transformation mean for bioprocess development
  • Cell and gene therapies: how do their challenges compare to traditional biologics?
  • Balancing the requirement for flexibility, agility and responsiveness with standardized data capture and reporting
  • Data standards: why have previous attempts failed and what are the most promising new developments
  • Breaking down the barriers between research, development and manufacturing
  • Improving reproducibility and increasing automation
