Discover articles from the overlapping worlds of pharmaceuticals and engineering. TechTalk taps into industry challenges and explores solutions using focused pharma engineering expertise.
The fourth industrial revolution is upon us and emerging technologies like robotics are dominating the manufacturing industry. Is your pharma facility ready for robotic solutions and pharma 4.0?
The key to manufacturing a consistent, quality product is the control strategy and understanding the process and mitigating risk is crucial.
With the FDA encouraging the use of innovative technologies, it’s only a matter of time before the use of robotics in biotech goes from first-mover to standard.
In the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, what do global regulatory authorities think of emerging technologies like continuous manufacturing?
Implementing single-use technology in biomanufacturing sparks an overlooked question – what good is a single-use system with no one to run it?
With an increase of personalised medicine, regulatory authorities must approve products faster. What else have personalised drugs changed in GMP?
Achieve true pharma manufacturing flexibility, support your business driver and satisfy regulatory authorities with focus on three key risk drivers.
Robotics can help pharma companies reach the goal of continuous manufacturing. But what else have robotics got to offer the pharmaceutical industry?
Single-use technology is pushing new boundaries, making strides in fill finish, continuous processes and even honing in on the 2,000 litre bioreactor.
A robust control strategy is a good manufacturing practice ‘must.’ So how do you get started on establishing this interdisciplinary game plan?
The FDA is in your facility, asking about microbial control of your closed process system. What do you do?
What can pharma manufacturing gain from implementing robotics and automation in the earliest part of the pharma value chain – research and development?
The pharmaceutical industry is slow to adopt advanced manufacturing systems but one company broke away from this reluctance and took a chance on PODs.
QbD principles are still not the standard for all manufactures’ pharmaceutical facility design. So why should the pharma industry take QbD more seriously?
Neglecting to develop a robust control strategy not only affects your business, but also holds severe consequences for the patient.
Single-use systems can speed up change-over of fill finish production lines without compromising sterility. Could this be the “shortcut” to success?
Sometimes, the right solution is a combination of technologies, which offers the most productive and cost-effective process in a fast and predictable way.
Pharma manufacturing embraces single-use technology, as it can simplify facility design and save cost. So how can engineers measure and capitalise on this?
Implementing single-use technology in pharma manufacturing is possible with high containment drugs, but it means satisfying conflicting agendas.
From single-use systems to continuous manufacturing – which tools do you use to tackle the new pharma reality where agility and flexibility reign supreme?
When redoing the batch is not an option, how are pharma manufacturers preparing for the increased personalised medicine and cell-based therapies?
Implementing containment within pharmaceutical manufacturing, is a matter of how, not when. Which level of closure is necessary for your drug production?
Autologous cell-based therapies are moving are taking the world of pharma manufacturing by storm. What can manufacturers expect from personalised medicine?
Closed systems can prevent the contamination of products, workers and a facility. It’s no wonder that this technology is becoming a foundation for biotech system design.
With many considerations like the patient, GMP compliance and production, where do you begin when outlining a control strategy for pharma manufacturing?
With this method, you can potentially convert 100 possible CPPs to a prioritised list of less than 10 CPPs.
Injectable drug production isn’t slowing down – and as a result, neither is aseptic technology. Find out what regulatory authorities think of aseptic production.
With complex drug development and pharma manufacturing, you can’t skip the details. Risk Analysis and Mitigation Matrix (RAMM) is the ultimate catch-all.
Single-use systems offer unprecedented flexibility for pharma manufacturing. Why not take efficiency to the next level and add continuous bioprocessing?
The pharma manufacturing industry can’t stop asking: What kind of efficiency is achievable with continuous manufacturing versus batch procedure?
The FDA appreciates continuous processes and they can save time and money during pharma manufacturing. So why is the industry hesitant to adopt this method?
A new generation of biopharmaceutical manufacturing is upon us and it focuses on flexibility and operability. Pharmaceutical plant design is changing fast.
Personalised drugs have shifted pharma companies’ roles from manufacturer to solution provider, calling for new collaboration with clinical care segments.
When it comes to pharma manufacturing, new products beg for a little innovation. With increased speed to market, continuous processes are here to deliver.
