Bioprocessing Facilties 2011 Conference

Bioprocessing Facilities 2011 Conference
Planning * Construction * Operations
August 8-9, 2011
San Diego, California

New programs to accelerate and expand the development and production of biologics have major implications for facility infrastructure and equipment investments, operating costs, and operational processes. Pharma and biopharma firms are rethinking facility models to achieve greater flexibility and capacity with lower capital and operating costs. New players from the university and research hospital sectors are planning cGMP space for new research, pilot-scale, and even biomanufacturing unlike anything they have done before. Additionally, government research agencies are planning new facilities and funding to integrate the production of biotherapeutics with medical research programs

This conference sets out management experience, lessons learned, findings, and insights on new bioprocessing facility solutions. It addresses the major issues in planning, construction, and operation of facilities for research, development, scale-up and full-scale manufacturing of biologics, including vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, biotherapeutics, and biodiagnostics.

This is your team's opportunity to pick up innovative concepts, processes, technologies, and facility models that will lower operating costs, reduce capital expenditures, enhance flexibility, streamline facility operations and maintenance, maintain regulatory compliance, raise capacity, and assure personal and product safety.
