    Biopharma Quality Management Best Practices: An Approach To Quality Initiatives

    Quality management is an increasingly important focus for biopharmaceutical manufacturers looking to avoid production problems and failures. And it’s increasingly becoming a multifaceted, industrywide concern as regulators take a closer look. With this in mind, it’s useful to see how the industry is approaching quality management in terms of the initiatives being pursued.

    Emerging Gloveless Robotic Technologies In Aseptic Manufacturing For Personalized Cytotoxic Drugs

    The blockbuster-model that was driving the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry in the last several decades has almost ended. Massive production, large batches, high speed lines have been designed to supply the patients with “multipurpose” small molecules drugs to cover the huge worldwide demand of health for the most common diseases. The next generation drugs will focus on the single patient and bespoke to cover the individual health demand. For instance, biotech products and large molecules are the most promising therapeutic means for treatment of different kinds of cancer.

  • Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
    Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand

    Past experiences have shown that too often product quality is based on sole reliance of vendor certifications, statements and promises. To diminish such reliance new technologies started to be implemented, like process analytical technologies (PAT), process controls, automation etc. often once again overexerted as the solution to all problems. Activities that supposedly result in higher product quality due to better process controls. Maik W. Jornitz, Chief Operating Officer, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
