As the aseptic field is particularly ambitious in terms of sterile technology and regulatory compliance, it is a daily challenge to keep quality at a very high level.
What’s your view on the industry?
"The industry is witnessing a profound shift from purely chemical products to biopharmaceuticals. That also signifies a shift to smaller batch sizes, which creates a need for a high degree of efficiency and flexibility for process equipment and building services alike. A number of factors influence a facility's design. To avoid cross-contamination, GMP requirements pertaining to unidirectional material and personnel flow need to be integrated in the design, while legal and self-imposed initiatives for building sustainable facilities dictate the design. Demand for modularity and expandability will thus continue to grow.”
Why work in the industry?
"Ever since I started working within the pharmaceutical industry in 1986, I have taken constant satisfaction from the fact that I can personally support companies to help their patients get better or to protect them against illness. As the aseptic field is particularly ambitious in terms of sterile technology and regulatory compliance, it is a daily challenge to keep quality at a very high level."
