Course Description:

Expansions and renovations to existing biological facilities – and construction of new facilities – provide a unique opportunity to rethink basic design strategies and use new technologies to build a better facility that will reduce costs and improve compliance. This webinar will discuss how process and regulations are changing the modern biotechnology facility and process design paradigm.

There are multiple variables that must be considered in the layout of a biopharmaceutical facility, and many of these variables are interdependent. The adoption of modern process systems and techniques are allowing for a shift in the balance of those variables to enable smaller and more flexible facilities. This will include the elimination of many of the utility areas, allow for rapid product/process change over, greater product integrity, and increased compliance. This webinar will explore modern facility design options and configurations, and the realities of building a facility around the today’s process technology.

Join us for this 90-minute, live, online seminar, where you will learn:

  • What impact single use systems (SUS) will have on facility design
  • Basic principles of facility layout
  • Layout rules and options
  • The three key basic layout models for all modern biotech design
  • How to develop smaller flexible facilities that will allow your operations to scale without pain

This course will be of benefit to anyone involved in the production, engineering, or quality operations of biotech facility or a team member assigned to a new biotech project.  Additionally, those for communicating internally with engineering or operations personnel responsible for new production will find this course extremely beneficial.
