Rapid Tech Transfer of High Hazard Chemical Processes in a Highly Regulated Environment

  • Tech transfer is a critical task for any business within the process industry, and it carries inherent risks and the potential for delays.
  • The ability to swiftly, safely and securely introduce new stages of chemistry into a pharmaceutical plant, in accordance with regulations and with consistent success, provides a significant advantage to pharmaceutical companies.
  • Discover how Sterling Pharma Solutions’ New Product Introduction (NPI) process, achieved a remarkable pace of delivering a new chemical stage to the plant every eight days in 2023, even when dealing with high-hazard chemistry.
  • Join Jamie Wolstenhulme, the NPI manager, and Paul Moscrop, the Process Engineering Manager, as they lead you through Sterling Pharma Solutions' NPI process. The site’s approach seamlessly integrates technology transfer, process development, hazard assessment, analytical development, process engineering, project management, and manufacturing to meet customer requirements.
