A Beginner's Guide to Continuous Processing for Biopharmaceuticals

Learn how to enhance the productivity and quality of your biopharmaceutical drug by adopting a continuous process on this 5-week online academy

Course Overview

Continuous manufacturing has served as a longstanding process in multiple industries and in recent years it has developed within the biotechnology sector. As companies seek to lower the capital and operational cost of the manufacturing process for their biological drug, adopting a continuous or semi-continuous train to process development has increased in popularity.  

Although continuous manufacturing presents significant benefits such as increased productivity and reduction of human error, it is still a new concept which comes with a lot of tacit knowledge to be developed and questions to be answered.

Over the course of 5 weeks, the course will address questions and challenges in continuous manufacturing by providing a step-by-step guide on how to adopt a continuous process, complemented by real-life case study examples and an overview of the regulatory landscape.
