Next Generation Bioprocessing

Join our 2-day technical forum to discuss a variety of topics on advancing biomanufacturing through intensified, connected or continuous processing.

Meet with your peers and technical experts to exchange on ideas, case studies, industry and regulatory trends.

During this forum you will learn more about:

  • Integrated continuous bioprocessing for mAb manufacturing
  • The development of robust unit operations, alternative technologies and constant mass flow
  • The implementation of supplier upgrades in support of next generation manufacturing
  • Regulatory strategies for intensified and continuous processing
  • Digital transformation

We look forward to welcoming you for an insightful exchange on the future of bioprocessing.
