The Value of Analytics for Achieving Successful Manufacturing Process Transfer

The Value of Analytics for Achieving Successful Manufacturing Process Transfer

Date: February 11, 2016, 3:00 p.m. EST

By Christina Vessely, PhD

Overview

The biopharmaceutical product development lifecycle often requires the transfer of a manufacturing process from one facility to another. These transfers can occur at any point along the development path, and may be driven by increases in material needs to support clinical studies or the commercial market. Demonstration of analytical product comparability between sites will decrease the likelihood of a regulatory agency (whether it be the FDA, EMA or another entity) requiring clinical and/or DMPK studies to support the transfer of a manufacturing process.

For biopharmaceutical companies of all sizes, a thorough understanding of the regulatory expectations and the development of a plan to address the regulatory requirements involved in facility process transfer is essential to avoid delays, additional studies and unnecessary costs.

This webinar will guide participants through the latest Agency thinking and Industry standards for the following:

  • Realizing the Value of Risk Assessments to Successful Transfers
  • Early Establishment & Alignment of Analytical Methods Between Sites
  • Alignment of General Practices Across Sites & Regions
  • Successfully Overcoming Linguistic & Cultural Barriers Between Sites
