Today's leading pharma and biotech manufacturers are seeing the quality and business benefits of better process understanding
LAFAYETTE, Colo. (PRWEB) March 17, 2008
Dr. Neway's presentation, "Achieving Manufacturing Process Excellence with Quality by Design (QbD), Design Space Engineering, Design for Manufacturing and Process Analytical Technologies (PAT)," scheduled for Thursday, March 27, at 2 p.m., will reveal how manufacturers can attain a "desired state" of manufacturing. Methods include using QbD and its enabling technologies to save both time and money by assuring appropriate quality outcomes in "real time" instead of during final product testing.
"Today's leading pharma and biotech manufacturers are seeing the quality and business benefits of better process understanding," said Dr. Neway. "QbD initiatives, when implemented strategically, allow users to pinpoint cause-and-effect relationships and improve the predictability of their manufacturing processes."
Nearly three-fourths of life sciences companies in a recent AMR Research survey said they already have, or will have within the next 12 months, a QbD initiative in place.
Dr. Neway has more than 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical and biotechnology process development and manufacturing, and in the application of software solutions to quality compliance and operational issues in pharmaceutical and biotherapeutic manufacturing. Prior to founding Aegis, Dr. Neway spent 15 years at biotech companies, where he became intimately familiar with the practical difficulties of accessing process development and manufacturing data from separate databases and on paper records, and the significant paybacks achievable from connecting to that data in real time for investigational analysis.
INTERPHEX2008, is the world's largest and most comprehensive pharmaceutical conference and exhibition. It is presented by Reed Exhibitions and sponsored by ISPE, the international society for pharmaceutical engineering, and Pharmaceutical Processing magazine. The application-oriented INTERPHEX2008 conference program will offer over 70 separate educational sessions to help pharmaceutical and biotech professionals develop critical skills to increase on-the-job performance.
