2018 ISPE Continuous Manufacturing Workshop

Interest in continuous manufacturing of pharmaceuticals has exploded in the past few years, fueled by the recent regulatory approvals of the first few drug products to be manufactured by this emerging technology. The 2018 ISPE Continuous Manufacturing Workshop will bring together industry practitioners, regulators and academics to discuss the recent successes and remaining challenges for continuous manufacturing of small molecule drug substances and drug products. The conference will provide an in-depth view of the manufacturing technologies and regulatory approaches for successful development, implementation, and lifecycle management of continuous manufacturing both for new molecules and for batch-to-continuous conversions.

Featured Topics

  • Communicating and Partnering with Regulators for Successful New Technologies
  • Control Strategies for Continuous Drug Products
  • Continuous Manufacturing of API: Network Capability, Flow Chemistry, and Executing at Commercial Scale
  • Continuous Process Verification for Continuous Manufacturing: Drug Product and Drug Substance
  • Continuous Separation and Purification for API
  • OSD Continuous Manufacturing Process/Equipment/Facility: Challenges and Opportunities
  • Quality Systems Considerations and the Impact of PAT and RTRT
  • Development Strategies for Continuous Manufacturing – Drug Product and Drug Substance
