Intensifying or simplifying your bioprocess can mean more product, shorter manufacturing times, or lower costs –understanding what matters most is key to making the right decisions.

It’s no secret that the biopharmaceutical industry is under intense pressure to reduce costs – especially in manufacturing – and getting more output from a given process is a clear win. Process intensification does just that. It can take an existing process and optimize it to increase output: more product in a shorter time, with fewer steps, and from a smaller working footprint. Process simplification, on the other hand, focuses on streamlining activities to increase efficiencies.
