3rd Global Bioprocessing, Bioanalytics and ATMP Manufacturing Congress


With more than 30 presentations given over two days, leaders in biopharmaceutical production will explore the latest technologies and manufacturing strategies for next-generation biologics and advanced therapies. This meeting focuses on key challenges within the field, evaluating innovative solutions such as continuous bioprocessing, SUTs, data integrity, PAT and the implementation of industry 4.0, all of which aim to increase the efficiency and yield of therapeutic production whilst maintaining high-quality standards. Once again, this meeting will also feature a track dedicated to the manufacturing of cell and gene therapies, exploring both the regulatory and manufacturing challenges of these complex products.
