Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Intensified and Continuous Processing

Improving Process Intensification, Monitoring, and Control

20-21 March 2024


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual Intensified and Continuous Processing conference focuses on developing, integrating, and implementing semi- and fully-continuous processing in upstream and downstream processing for clinical and commercial use.


Key topics include process intensification, continuous process development from perfusion to purification, digitalization, process control, robustness and monitoring, viral safety, cost analysis, and ramping up production from clinical to commercialisation, all in line with international regulations. The conference also looks at the increasing move towards sustainable biomanufacturing and end-of-product lifecycle.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


Process Intensification—Perfusion to Purification

  • Case studies of rapid intensification in USP and DSP
  • State-of-the-art technologies in continuous processing
  • Integrating processes—semi-continuous and continuous processing
  • Viral clearance in a continuous processing setting
  • Intensification strategies in cell and gene therapy
  • Measuring the economic impact of process intensification
  • Facility design for intensified and continuous processes
  • Regulation—what defines a batch?


Process Analytics, Predictive Control, and Automation

  • PAT and online measurement for improving continuous processing
  • Moving towards automation of continuous processing
  • Implementing PAT


Sustainable and Environmental Approaches to Biomanufacturing

  • Environmentally-friendly approaches to biomanufacturing
  • Scope 3 emissions
  • Use of more eco-friendly materials
  • Bio-circulation


Smart Bioprocessing—Digitalization and ML/AI in Continuous Processing

  • Digital solutions for improving continuous processing
  • The use of AI and machine learning in continuous processing
  • Data management, capture, and integrity: case studies on the use of data in improving process
  • Modelling to improve outcomes in continuous processing


The deadline for priority consideration is Friday 22 September.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
