Past event: Disposable Solutions For Biomanufacturing Conference

Scale Your Manufacturing Capabilities and Achieve Process Excellence through Disposable Technologies

Now in it's 12th year, the 2020 Disposable Solutions for Biomanufacturing Forum is the only global forum that focuses on the use of disposable products and single use systems in biomanufacturing. Be guided through your journey and understand how you can run 100% disposable sites and scale your manufacturing capabilities with our newly designed program focused on implementation, systems management and future technology.

Join us for three packed days of case studies and interactive sessions to identify new technologies, determine how to approach automated systems, transition to continuous processes and learn how to implement best practice in system testing & life cycle management!

Brought to you with a brand new three day format

  • Join Novo Nordisk to identify a playbook to fully utilise closed systems in modern biopharma facilities
  • Be guided through your safety assessment of extractables & leachables with Bayer
  • Identify the challenges of integrating vaccine and biopharmaceutical processes with Zoetis
System Management
  • Discuss with Janssen supplier material qualification of disposables - standardisation & challenges
  • Gain insights from ExcellGene on high density cultures of CHO cells
  • Join Bayer to consider the manufacturing concept for a robust cold chain, ensuring flexibility and scale-up opportunities, and development considerations
Future Technology
  • Uncover the challenges and opportunities of using disposables in cell therapy manufacturing with Pluristem Therapeutics
  • Understand the industrialisation of single use solutions: learning, attention points & opportunities with UCB
  • Gain insight of a combined USP/DSP line (SUB + 1. column) using disposables and automated systems, and a connected process with Roche Diagnostics

"Conference of this size usually provides the best mix of learning and discussion"
