SES215b - A Paradigm Change in Fill Finish via Collaboration

Nov 1, 2022 4:00pm ‐ Nov 1, 2022 5:30pm


Major issues affecting the drug product industry include long lead times, high equipment costs, and a reliance on modified legacy technologies that introduce operational compromises. To meet the unprecedented demand for pharmaceuticals, the industry needs to adopt a more responsive, modular, technology approach that overcomes the major issues affecting the industry.

This presentation introduces a paradigm shift in Fill Finish technology (to be made public in Q2 2022). Using the backdrop of a collaboration case study between three international companies, each offering something very different, it describes the innovation journey from vision to solution. By starting with first principles and adopting a range of technologies such as robotics, smart manufacturing, modular design and construction, the presentation will describe how the companies combined their knowledge and skill sets, and modified existing product offerings, to design and build a flexible equipment offering that is unique within the industry. This pre-engineered, pre-qualified, and cost effective solution, offers the industry a scale-out, in-country solution that will enable wider filling opportunities.

Similar to Operation Warp Speed where industry demonstrated how collaboration resulted in delivering unimaginable results, this presentation reinforces the notion that collaboration between companies, can deliver enhanced outcomes for the benefit of the industry.
