    • Technical Data Digital Technology Roadmap

      The Digital Plant Maturity Model (DPMM)1 describes one characteristic of a Level 5: Adaptive Plant as “In-line, real-time, continuous, closed-loop, process verification and control with automated realtime quality release”. This is the pinnacle of ‘Industry 4.0’, a term coined around 2011 to outline the advantages that a wide array of digital technologies running in concert can bring to manufacturing and critical facilities. For most pharmaceutical manufacturers, the strategic advancements these technologies can deliver have not been realized.

    • Technical Data Operational vision: Adoption of in-line monitoring and real-time release

      Historically, the biopharmaceutical industry has relied on traditional pharmaceutical manufacturing practices to make and release products. This publication examines the future of biopharmaceutical manufacturing by presenting the vision of fully implemented in-line monitoring (ILM) and real-time release (RTR) (as described in BioPhorum biomanufacturing technology roadmap first edition¹).

      This aspirational vision includes full ILM, predictive analytics and advanced process controls (APC) enabling release of product in real time, with concomitant predictive and preventative alerts and resolution of process, equipment and other production issues.

    • Technical Data Current and near-future bioprocess supply situation and trends post COVID-19

      This paper provides an overview of the current and near-future bioprocess supply situation and trends. Prior to COVID-19 the bioprocess supply industry was growing at 12-14%. While some supply segments, such as single-use systems (SUS), have been growing faster than this average, overall, the bioprocessing industry pipeline continues to generate very strong demand for supplies and consumables for both COVID and non-COVID vaccines and therapies. However, recent order declines seen by suppliers have created concern. Challenges during the Pandemic created supply chain problems for biologics manufacturing that remain unresolved.

      In this podcast, Emmanuel Abate, Vice President Genomics and Cellular Research and Sustainability Executive Leader, Cytiva, talks about BioPhorum providing an excellent space to have facilitated discussions along the supply chain, allowing members to ‘lift the curtains’ on what they want to do better, and how they can do it jointly. Whilst the industry is traditionally secretive to protect IP, there are many common challenges they can work on together. One such challenge is the responsible use of single-use technology.

    • Podcast BioPhorum introduces – Sustainability in conversation with Ipsen

      Ipsen has a clear view of what it will take to deliver a 1.5-degree aligned reduction, but global availability and maturity of solutions are holding them back. 

      Colm Murphy, VP Global Environment, Health & Safety, believes Ipsen has an advantage in the fact its CEO is passionate and challenging about sustainability and this, along with the company’s size, helps when connecting corporate strategy with frontline execution.

      With one of the biggest sustainability challenges centred around supply chains, How can collaboration in BioPhorum Sustainability help to meet the targets?

    • Podcast BioPhorum introduces - Sustainability in conversation with Corning

      Sustainability for many organizations is mission-critical and materials science group Corning is making great progress. Most recently, using guidance developed by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and in alignment with a 1.5°C future scenario, two more goals were added to their list of climate commitments: reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% (absolute basis) and relevant Scope 3 emissions by 17.5% (absolute basis) by 2028 compared to a 2021 baseline.
      In this podcast, Christie McCarthy, Director of Sustainability at Corning Life Sciences, talks about being the conductor of a sustainability orchestra, building on from pockets of goodness, connecting the dots between employees and impact, and the importance of industry engagement.
    • Webinar Developing a Sustainability Roadmap for the Biopharma Industry

      Despite broad agreement across the biopharma sector on common long-term environmental sustainability goals , there remains a lack of industry specific standards, regulations, and metrics. For the past year, BioPhorum members have collaborated across the value chain to chart a roadmap for the biopharma industry; setting out the key enablers necessary to deliver decarbonization and embed circularity. All disciplines: scientists, process engineers, procurement teams, facility designers, regulatory experts can begin to explore the vital role they play in maximizing the contribution the biopharma industry can make to repairing the planet whilst at the same time accelerating access to healthcare for all.
