NEXT GENERATION BIOMANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS

IBioIC and Applikon Biotechnology hosted an event on 9th May 2018, at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute at Strathclyde University, to explore new trends in the development and manufacture of future biologics covering start to finish bioprocessing from both upstream and downstream processing to the pharma and biotech community.

The event brought together bioprocessing and biotechnology industry professionals from twenty different organisations and industries to explore new trends in the development and manufacture of future biologics, covering everything from start-to-finish bioprocessing from both upstream and downstream processing to the pharma and biotech community.

All of the delegates are passionate about increasing the awareness and collective knowledge of our community on the advances in new technology in the field of next generation biologic manufacturing. IBioIC’s Business Development Manager, Jude Huggan, gave the keynote talk on the next generation of biomanufacturing in Scotland an IBioIC’s role in supporting this.

With the theme of the event established, the first talk of the day was provided by Tony Borthwick from Applikon Biotechnology who discussed the implications of high throughput upstream process development and why consideration to scaling your final process should be given throughout. Linking with the upstream theme, Earl Pineda of Repligen discussed continuous biomanufacturing, focusing on perfusion technology.

Chris Major from Purolite presented a new protein A resin designed to address today’s continuous manufacturing challenges. Following on well from this Susan Sinclair from Semba Biosciences discussed sequential purifications using multi-column continuous chromatography.

Steve Burton from Prometic Bioseparations presented a rapid affinity ligand screening tool; the Multi-mode mimetic Ligand Library. The final presentation of the day was provided by John Beveridge from Nova  Biomedical and focused on electrochemical sensor technology priniciples as well as automation.

With opportunities for networking throughout the day, this was a very well received event which accomplished its aim to gather like-minded professionals who are passionate about increasing awareness and collective knowledge of new technologies in the field of next generation biologic manufacturing amongst our community.
