A Beginner's Guide to Continuous Processing for Biopharmaceuticals

Learn to implement a continuous process to enhance productivity and the quality of your biopharmaceutical product

In light of recent developments

If you would like to start the course sooner than advertised please contact us and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.

Course Overview

Continuous manufacturing has served as a longstanding process in multiple industries due to its cost saving benefits. Biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities require significant investment to build and are very costly to run operationally in comparison to small molecules. As a result, continuous bioprocessing has grown in demand within the biopharmaceutical sector as it delivers greater efficiencies, reduces human error and saves money - vital in a sector where pricing remains uncertain.  

Although continuous manufacturing presents significant benefits such as increased productivity and reduction of human error, it is still a new concept which comes with a lot of tacit knowledge to be developed and questions to be answered. 

Over 5 weeks, the course will address questions and challenges in continuous manufacturing across the whole bioprocess (from upstream to downstream). You will examine a step-by-step guide on how to adopt a continuous bioprocess, complemented by real-life case study examples and an overview of the regulatory landscape.
