Advantages of Developing Processes and Manufacturing API with Single-Use Technologies



WEBINAR

In this webinar, our experts will shed light on how we are currently designing our new biologic GMP commercial manufacturing facility in France.

Flexibility is at the heart of our facility planning and set-up. We will showcase the advantages of single-use technology and its impact on the plant’s running costs, flexibility, and capabilities e.g. for perfusion.

In 2012, we converted our GMP clinical manufacturing facility into 100% single-use technology. Today, our process development capabilities and our GMP clinical drug substance supply are based on single-use technology. Being a CDMO and a product provider, we are leveraging our industry-leading, single-use technologies to help our customers minimize risk and optimize speed for scale-up and tech transfer. Using and sharing our first-hand experience combined with modern facility conceptual design, we will walk you through our facility planning, the ballroom concept, and showcase what we mean by flexibility.

An on-demand version of this webinar will be available after October 28 using the same link. Register now and access the webinar at your convenience.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Designing a GMP biologic commercial manufacturing facility – a CDMO’s perspective
  • Single-use technology and its impact on the facility’s flexibility and capabilities
  • Customers’ advantages of using single-use equipment for process development, clinical and commercial production
