All aboard! Your Automation Journey Begins Here!

Catherine Thacker, Director Life Sciences Marketing,
P. Eng.

Is your product suitable for automated manufacturing? Has your R&D team defined the product and process requirements to the point where you can author a detailed user requirements specification? Have you identified the in-process critical-to-quality attributes that you want to address with automation? How does the product demand forecast influence your manufacturing and automation plan? When is the right time to kick-off an automation project? Attend our session about planning for automation. We will share best practices for establishing a manufacturing strategy and building your business case, putting you on track to your final destination successful delivery of your project.

Emerging Technologies in Assembly Automation
Albert Kleinikkink, Director R&D, P. Eng., MBA

Pharmaceutical manufacturing systems operate inside of demanding constraints, but innovations are providing new opportunities to drive efficiencies and re-imagine these manufacturing systems. In this session, we will explore the state of the art in two such technologies – material conveyance in aseptic environments, and LED UV-curable adhesive processes for medical devices.

The Deviation Train Wreck: The Power of Line of Sight™ and PAT Tools for QbD Approach and to Assist with Batch Recovery

Zak Yusoff, PMP, Manager Global Technology Applications

Quality by Design (QbD) is expected by regulatory agencies, and rationalization will be required if this philosophy is not adopted. Creating QbD is made easy with the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) tools available within the SP Line of Sight™ (LoS). Understanding your process design space will ensure that your products maintain the quality required for patient safety. Managing deviations is one of the most laborious activities, putting your batch at risk for potential reject, and requiring extensive effort for rationalization to support acceptance, especially for lyophilized products. It impacts your business bottom line and triggers red flags for your products’ annual report and inspection. This presentation will help you prepare your organization for those events when data to support your product quality will be needed. We will discuss the benefit of QbD and the data you obtain through the LoS approach for batch recovery.

Lyobeads:  The New Approach to Pharma and Diagnostics
Brandon Cole, Business Development Strategy and Planning, Manager

We will explore what a Lyobead is, what benefits they offer over traditional forms of pharma and reagents, and how we create them. We will take a quick visual tour of BioDot dispensing and nitrogen wells, SP and Lyophilization and then talk about some adders such as automated handling, loading and aseptic enclosures.
