Stricter regulations have required biopharma companies to place even more emphasis on their regulatory compliance. Some of them use Electronic Batch Records (EBR) to report on their batch operations and to implement operational excellence programs to improve KPI's like OEE. They also monitor their processes in real-time in order to optimize the entire supply chain. These processes generate a vast amount of data. The term most pharmaceutical companies use today is Data Integrity, which is all about the data trustworthiness, data accessibility, and data quality during the entire product lifecycle. So how do you deploy a single source of truth that allows individuals to acquire this information in a fast, secure, and consistent way regardless of its origin?

In this webinar, learn how biopharma companies use the PI System to improve regulatory compliance, increase throughput, reduce time-to-market, and improve knowledge management.

During the lengthy process of pharmaceutical development, an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) or its intermediates can go through many physical and chemical changes. These changes are needed to produce the API with the correct chemical structure and physical property. Monitoring the progress of these transformations is important for the process understanding as well as serving as a tool for in-process control (IPC) to ensure the completeness of the transformation. IR and Raman Spectroscopies are sensitive to both chemical and physical changes of a compound and have evolved into useful tools in our lab for process monitoring.

Risk management is not new to Quality Control Microbiology. In fact, microbiological control in the pharmaceutical industry has been following risk management concepts for over half a century. The Microbiologist's role in this transformation of industry to a Quality by Design (QbD) thinking paradigm has become very crucial. The use of quality tools has increased, to help develop a better understanding of how and where to implement microbiological control of processes. Some quality tools can also be used to present information to others in an organized, pragmatic manner.

Mycoplasma contamination can have a devastating impact on biopharmaceutical productions, so quick and reliable screening of materials is critical for minimizing the risk of contamination. The traditional FDA Points to Consider (PTC) has long been considered the preferred mycoplasma test for cell culture media and supplements, but it is a lengthy method requiring trained microbiologists and cultivation of live mycoplasma. PCR has been gaining acceptance as a method for quickly and accurately screening raw materials. However, most commercially available PCR methods have been optimized for screening cell lines or cell culture media and not complex materials like peptones, which are widely used as cell culture supplements in biological production.

Please join us to learn more about the MycoTOOL qPCR assay and how this technology has been optimized for the testing of peptones.

The pharmaceutical industry is increasing the rate of adoption of advanced manufacturing techniques such as continuous manufacturing. Manufacturing approaches such continuous rely on in-process measurements to a much larger extent than previous ones. NIR spectroscopy has historically been the predominant spectroscopic measurement for these in-process requirements. More recent advances in Raman technology along with other benefits such as increased chemical specificity and reduced interference from physical changes make it an appealing option which is seeing an increase in adoption in-process. Here we will present work demonstrating the utilization of the Kaiser Raman system within a continuous pharmaceutical tableting line along with comparisons to NIR.

Live Webinar

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

The story of pharmaceutical production is often a quest for the golden batch: a repeatable process that consistently produces the optimizes yield and quality. Recently an animal health subsidiary of Boehringer Ingelheim-a top international pharmaceutical company began collaborating with OSIsoft and Sartorius Stedim Data Analytics on a project that uses multivariate data analysis techniques (MVDA) to create golden batch trajectories based on historic data. These golden batch trajectories could then be used for real-time monitoring and prescriptive process control for higher potency batches.

Keeping the Data Lake from Becoming a Data Swamp

The perfect world for industrial data processing does not exist yet. Pushing all production and operational data in a raw format to a central big data store will result in a data swamp instead of a data lake. Only specialized data scientists will be able to make sense out of the data. In an industrial environment, preprocessing of all real-time data is essential. Bringing context to the data is a must to assure that business users can leverage the data to optimize operations.

In this webinar John de Koning will discuss how leveraging the right technology to combine a data lake with a real-time infrastructure is crucial to optimize your business.
