Cambridge Healthtech Institute ’s 3rd Annual

Continuous Processing for Biopharmaceuticals

Improving Process Intensification, Integration and Control

24-25 March 2020


Continuous bioprocessing is an efficient way for companies to improve productivity and facility utilization. But what are the practical considerations to consider, which technology gaps still remain, and how can industry ensure process control and stability at scale?

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Continuous Processing for Biopharmaceuticals conference focuses on the practical challenges of developing, integrating and implementing continuous processing across upstream and downstream processing. Key topics include continuous process development from perfusion to purification, process control, robustness and monitoring, viral safety, cost analysis and ramping up production for commercialization, all in line with international regulations.
