As the need to accelerate biopharmaceutical development around the world continues to grow, biomanufacturers face a host of challenges so they, too, can grow. Increasing process productivity, reducing cost, mitigating risk, and bringing products to market faster are just a few of the issues frequently addressed. But with support in process development, cGMP manufacturing and training, accelerating bioprocess development can become less challenging.
Several biomanufacturers have successfully navigated these issues in collaboration with GE Healthcare’s Fast Trak Services. Whether it was through process and analytical development, process scale‑up, or manufacturing of drug material for use in toxicology studies, recent collaborations have yielded remarkable results. The following case studies describe projects in which collaborative efforts resulted in fast resolutions to common biomanufacturing challenges.
