The Wait Is Over: Real World Data from The Factory of the Future

Thursday, April 11 2013
8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Location: MassBio, 300 Technology Square, Cambridge




The promise and reality regarding the “Factory of the Future”, implementing single use / disposable technologies, and alternative new processing technologies, have not always been in sync. 

However, there is already a working development, clinical, and commercial manufacturing site that has embraced multiple leading edge technologies and processes to benefit biotechs of all shapes and sizes.

During this scientific symposia, sponsored jointly by Gallus BioPharmaceuticals and MassBio, you will hear from the leading technology providers AND the scientists who have implemented these technologies and processes in the “real world” – their own labs and production suites. 

  • Hear about the pioneering work of Genzyme in developing continuous processing, as highlighted in the recent MIT publication.
  • See the data from user case studies demonstrating:

Improving average titers by over 25%
Ability to scale from small to large disposable bioreactors
Increased productivity due to the use of disposables
Reduce COGS with the implementation of new disposable technologies

  • Engage with leading technology companies and users from companies such as:

GE Xcellerex
Refine Technologies
Natrix Separations
Gallus BioPharmaceuticals

The panelists will share their lessons learned while attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions relevant to your own organization’s assessment / implementation of these game-changing initiatives.

The presentations, interactive Q&As, panel discussions, data sharing, and a networking lunch will provide you with the context and considerations as you continue on your own journey to the “Factory of the Future.”

You should attend if you are responsible for assessing novel technologies, developing processes, planning capacity needs and managing contract manufacturing resources.
