Pharma IQ spoke to Ken Wong - MTech/Process Technology - Extractables & Leachables Sanofi Pasteur, who has been leading the site’s E&L programme since he joined just over two years ago, to explore Ken’s real world projects at the pharma firm in regards to extractables and leachables testing.
Over the years, single use technologies have been expanding in different applications, meaning that there are now a multitude of single use alternatives for different elements of bioprocessing.
In this article, we spoke to Sharyn Farnsworth, Principal Scientist- Manager Cell Culture, Upstream Process Development, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies and Francis Verhoeye, Global Pilot Operations Leader, Zoetis to discuss the benefits of embedding scalability and flexibility in single use systems, and the challenges of making systems more flexible and scalable.
In this interview Jerold Martin, Sr. Vice President, Global Scientific Affairs for Pall Life Sciences and Chairman of the Bio-Process Systems Alliance (BPSA), speaks about the aims of the PDA Technical Report Number 66, Application of Single Use Systems in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and what progress has been made with standardising practices for disposables in biomanufacturing. Plus, he highlights seven challenges the industry will face in 2015 during the implementation of single-use systems.
Biomanufacturing companies are constantly seeking out new ways to lower their cost of goods, improve process efficiency, gain operational flexibility and upgrade their facilities. Ahead of his workshop at Disposable Solutions for Biomanufacturing 2018, we spoke exclusively with Dr Philipp Hess, Managing Partner at PHA, to discuss the key elements of process optimisation and efficiency used in single-use technology solutions.
