Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 10th Annual

Intensified & Continuous Processing

Efficiency, Sustainability, and Speed

August 19-20, 2024

 

Join leading scientists, engineers, and industry experts to tackle real-world challenges and explore applications of continuous bioprocessing and process intensification across a wide spectrum of modalities. The event will deep dive into innovative solutions for both upstream and downstream processing, catering to cutting-edge therapies like bispecifics, multispecifics, viral vectors, cell-based therapies, mRNA, oligonucleotides, peptides, and exosomes. Learn about the latest advances in PAT, automation and machine learning for continuous control, monitoring, modeling, and prediction; hear how sustainability becomes a strategic driver in continuous processing to minimize waste and environmental impact. Join us at the Intensified & Continuous Processing conference, where we will delve into the future of efficiency, sustainability, and speed in the industry.

 

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

 

PERFUSION AND CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS FOR UPSTREAM PROCESSING

  • Antibody-based therapeutics (multispecifics, bispecifics, fusion proteins)
  • non-Mabs (viral vectors, cell-based therapies, mRNA, exosomes, antimicrobial resistance)
  • Process intensification for viral vectors at high cell density

DOWNSTREAM PROCESS INTENSIFICATION

  • Process intensification for higher activity, potency, and purity
  • Continuous chromatography—multi-column chromatography, mixed-mode chromatography
  • Membranes and monoliths
  • Downstream challenges for complex molecules
  • Challenges in continuous viral inactivation

PAT, AUTOMATION, AIML IN CONTINUOUS UP- AND DOWNSTREAM PROCESSES

  • Implementation of PAT, automation, and soft sensors in continuous monitoring and control
  • AI/ML to enable data collection and analysis
  • Predictive modeling and digital twin applications in continuous biomanufacturing
  • Microscale experimental platforms

SUSTAINABILITY IN CONTINUOUS PROCESSING

  • Comparison of batch vs. continuous mode; stainless steel vs. single-use bioreactors, small-scale vs. large-scale
  • Sustainability scoring and performance indicators
  • More efficient use of resources, reduction of carbon emissions, recycling/upcycling of plastic disposables
  • Circular bio-economy

 

The deadline for priority consideration is February 2, 2024.

 

All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
