GEA and RCPE to support Pharma’s adoption of continuous manufacturing5 Oct 2017
Düsseldorf (Germany) – GEA and the Research Center for Pharmaceutical EngineeringGmbH (RCPE) are working together to facilitate the industrial implementation of continuous manufacturing technologies.
The collaboration between GEA, a supplier of advanced engineering services and process equipment, and theRCPE in Graz (Austria), experts in process and product optimization, will help pharmaceutical companies to better negotiate the regulatory submission process, shorten timelines, reduce risk and expedite drug development fromR&D through tech transfer to commercial production.
The partnership provides a single-source repository of process technology, design, and material science know-how, as well as simulation and modeling expertise, to optimize the integration and use of process technologies and unit operations for the production of oral solid dosage (OSD) forms.
RCPE’s Massimo Bresciani, Executive Director, Scientific Operations & Business Development, said: “We are proud and energized to collaborate with GEA. It’s a unique opportunity to further expand our remit in the area of advanced manufacturing science and, specifically, in continuous manufacturing. By combining our experience and industry presence, GEA and RCPE can more effectively support pharmaceutical companies to adopt innovative continuous manufacturing solutions and meet their regulatory requirements.
”Frans K.A. Maas, Vice President APC Pharma Solids at GEA, added: “The collaboration with RCPE is another step towards expanding our ecosystem, de-risking the migration from batch-based to continuous processing and delivering added value to the pharmaceutical sector. By working with academic organizations such as RCPE, our ultimate aim is to get safer medicines to market in a more efficient and cost-effective way so that everyone has access to the most efficacious pharmaceuticals, wherever they are in the world.”
