Platform Designs for Today’s New Drug Production Facilities

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM |

Modular and standardization initiatives continues to be at the forefront of new construction techniques aimed at reducing cost and schedule while keeping quality high. This presentation will cover recently developed platform design that leverage new ways of integrating modular systems to their fullest. Prototype designs include:

• Single Use Biotech / Drug Substance
• Cell & Gene Therapy
• Fill Finish / Drug Product

Biopharma wants to make new drug products more accessible and at the same time be able to quickly respond to changes in the way new drugs are produced and the variations in product demand. The industry is challenged to deliver truly flexible biopharmaceutical manufacturing facilities with significant reductions in schedule, cost, and client operating resources.
To achieve these goals, design firms in the Life Sciences market are now capturing many of their best practices for flexible manufacturing into a prototype facility design where modular and other pre-engineered systems can be evaluated for use on a project. The platform-modular approach along with a set of analysis tools allows life science companies to rapidly ascertain the economic advantage of using a prototype design and the degree to which modular and pre-engineered systems can be leverage to reduce cost and schedule while retaining the overall quality they need.
This presentation will show recent modular prototype designs and the platform approach that was used to create them. The prototypes presented will also highlight how to take advantage and leverage the best systems the modular market now has to offer.
