Our generous sponsors at 3M and GE Healthcare have graciously offered BPI attendees free entrance into their pre-conference symposia, held on Tuesday, September 4, from 1:00pm-6:00pm.
Process Intensification – Sponsored by 3M
Development of Next Generation Purification Platforms through Novel Technologies and Holistic Process Engineering Approaches. Speakers would address process intensification as part of next generation bioprocess strategy. In the current environment of diverse product pipelines, rapidly fluctuating market demands and growing competition from biosimilars, companies are driven to develop innovative solutions for highly flexible and cost‐effective processes and manufacturing. To address these challenging demands, integrated continuous processing, comprised of high‐density perfusion cell culture and a directly coupled with continuous capture step, can be used as a universal Biomanufacturing platform.
The Future Demand and Opportunity for Biotherapeutic Development – How Advanced Approaches to Process Intensification Can Help the Case! – Sponsored by GE Healthcare
“Non-communicable diseases are a slow-motion disaster…these are the diseases that break the bank. Left unchecked, they had the power to devour the benefits of economic gains.” This 2011 statement by former WHO Director General Margret Chan points directly at the need and the opportunity for biomedical advancements and the demand for affordable biotherapeutics enabled among other aspects by efficient manufacturing of those products for patients around the globe. The seminar will discuss healthcare priorities and provide selected reviews of technology: cells, the drivers of productivity; harvesting step improvements fixing the weakest link in the process chain; intensification of the whole integrated process including the outlook on continuous processing; not the least, an insight in the regulatory maze upon process changes will call for the need to, finally, address local administrative obstacles that hardly add any value to the spread of most powerful therapies in our fight of non-communicable disease. Join the authors of “Biopharmaceutical Processing” to get an update on the key opportunities and challenges in our industry. And get a copy of the book in the process…
Simply tick this option box if you wish to attend one of these two sponsored symposia. Please note that entrance to other symposia is not allowed with this pass.
