Thursday 15th March 2018
Continuous manufacturing
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Continuous manufacturing offers great promise in improving productivity, efficiency and the intrinsic quality of pharmaceutical products. However, despite strong regulatory support aimed at encouraging the early adoption of new technologies, which in turn would facilitate the application of modern quality management techniques to all aspects of pharmaceutical production and quality assurance; uptake by Industry has been very slow.
This symposium will critically examine some of the challenges and opportunities that arise from adopting continuous manufacturing. Leading regulators, industrialists and academics will be sharing their experiences in the development, manufacturing and quality assurance of continuous manufacturing.
