Pharma process engineering

Pharma manufacturing processes and process technology is at the core of NNE’s expertise. Our specialized knowledge of biopharmaceutical manufacturing spans across five specific areas:

NNE's process engineers are specialized in:

  • Process technology
  • Finished products
  • Medical devices
  • Active products
  • Utility
  • Mechanical
  • Applied manufacturing science
  • Operations management

We can help you from the initial phase of a new project to the validation of a new piece of equipment. We are with you from the first CMC submissions of manufacturing concepts through pharma manufacturing investment projects to the ongoing operations and upgrades of pharmaceutical processes and technologies.

In addition, when a project is finalized, we can help implement proven innovative methods and optimize in different ways. This lifecycle approach is unique in the industry.

We have many years of experience in the design and operation of pharma manufacturing solutions for both large and small production volumes. Our services include:

  • Conceptual design of pharma process solutions
  • Designing production systems for biopharmaceutical and aseptic manufacturing
  • Technology assessment of existing facilities or due diligence services
  • Process validation
  • Process optimization and support

Combining specialized knowledge for all-round engineering solutions

Our expertise within finished products is based on our state-of-the-art knowledge of processes and GMP regulations within aseptic manufacturing. We have competencies in wash, sterilization, filling, freeze drying, inspection, assembly, packaging and equipment qualification. In addition, we consult on optimizing equipment, products and production processes.

NNE's active products engineers provide solutions for our customers' formulation, utility and cleaning needs i.e. specification, design, implementation, qualification and validation in the design phases.

We help clarify your needs and develop processes, offering alternative solutions, best practices, scheduling, and process analysis. We also have unique insight into production and drug manufacturing processes for process design, formulation, clean utility, CIP/SIP technologies, black utilities, solvent recovery, containment and regulatory requirements.

Finally, NNE offers expertise within applied manufacturing science to help increase your level of product and process understanding. This can significantly help to reduce costs by increasing quality. In addition, we can help you design robust products that can withstand and reduce typical production variation.
