Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual

Continuous Processing in Biopharm Manufacturing

Enabling Wider Adoption and Consistent Product Quality

August 12-13, 2019

While the adoption rate for continuous bioprocessing has been slow, the industry is optimistic that continuous bioprocessing will happen once the initial challenges are resolved, and when current products are developed using such methods.

In upstream, perfusion technologies are becoming more popular with examples from many major biopharmaceutical companies. Downstream operations such as purification, however, have met with more barriers to adoption, particularly for clinical to GMP manufacturing.

CHI’s 5th Annual Continuous Processing in Biopharm Manufacturing invites researchers to share their latest endeavors in developing up- and down-stream continuous processes for clinical and GMP products, and in exploring strategies and technology enablers for continuous bioprocessing, including process intensification, PAT, single-use and advanced process controls.


Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Current State of the Industry on Continuous Process Implementation
  • Moving from Batch to Continuous – Examination of Economics vs Risks, Workstream vs Resources
  • From Process Intensification to Continuous Bioprocessing
  • Continuous Upstream Processing
  • Continuous Downstream Processes for Early Phase to Clinical Products
  • Continuous Virus Inactivation
  • Economics and Initiatives for Continuous Processing of Non-mAbs – Vaccines, Viruses, and Complex Proteins
  • Challenges in Scaling-Up and Integration of Up- and Down-stream Continuous Processes
  • Role of PAT, Single-Use and Automation in Continuous Bioprocessing
    • Raman Spectroscopy
    • Sensor technology
    • Integration of PAT and data analytics in a continuous process
  • Control Strategy and Advanced Process Analytics
    • Enabling predictive process control and ultimately real-time release with continuous processes
  • Regulatory Perspective on Continuous Biomanufacturing
