Aging Aseptic and Biological Manufacturing Facilities: Design and Renovation for Compliance
The pharmaceutical business has a global shortage of aseptic fill sites and flexible biological manufacturing plants. This is primarily due to the decade-long merger/acquisition and consolidation trends in the business.
This has forced facilities to produce and perform well beyond their anticipated useful lifespan.
The existing facilities have been forced to expand production, change product portfolios and most likely have undergone a change of ownership.
Most of these facilities have remained in a poor state and have weak infrastructure — even as the FDA and international regulators have pushed through substantial new GMP regulations, general engineering practices and innovative design philosophies.
This has resulted in massive compliance risks for drug sponsors and contract manufacturers.
This presentation will explore modern technologies of facility redevelopment that can extend the life of a facility by 10 -20 years. Additionally, these proven strategies can enhance compliance, reduce the operating risks and provide more robust plant performance.
You will learn:
- How unidirectional flows and architectural layout can boost productivity
- Why upcoming intense FDA inspections should have you considering HVAC upgrades, AHU modernization, segregation, isolation and distribution
- Best practices in architectural finishes and upgrades can reduce operating risks
- Single use/disposables process systems have been deemed by many to be the future of manufacturing — how can you safely and compliantly build out these systems
- How to use automation and portable systems to deliver product faster
- The top operational upgrades in material handling that every manufacturing professional should know
