Evolution in Bioprocessing: Going intensified, connected and continuous

The move towards next generation bioprocessing — from process intensification to connected to fully continuous processing — is real and is happening now and we’re all in it together: Biomanufacturers are seeking new strategies to deliver higher productivity, improved economics, and to achieve greater flexibility and enhance quality as well as safety. Suppliers are developing novel technologies and game-changing solutions. Regulatory agencies are helping to safeguard the way forward.

While the benefits of next generation bioprocessing are clear, there are multiple pathways to success and many options across a range of disciplines must be considered. For some applications and biomanufacturers, the focus will be on improving unit operation’s interoperability, for others the goal will be connected or fully continuous processing.
