BioProcess International Session Spotlight: Facility of the Future – Single Use Facility, A Case Study from Biogen Idec

Single Use technologies have become widely deployed in bioprocessing and biopharmaceutical manufacturing for various applications. However, there are still a number of applications where single use technologies are not being used that offer opportunities for increase efficiency. Much more is being learned as companies test out disposable technologies and a number of practical challenges are being discovered.

This week, we profile the session Facility of the Future – Single Use Facility, A Case Study from Biogen Idec.  This session will highlight the practical experiences and lessons learned by companies who are actively trying to exploit single use technologies in their facilities and bioprocess operations. You will learn unbiased opinions about what works, what doesn’t and improvements that still need to be made to better incorporate this exciting technology for maximum benefit.

The BioProcess International Conference will take place September 16-19, 2013 in Boston, MA.  For more information on this session and the rest of the program, download the agenda.  If you'd like to join us, as a reader of this blog when you register to join us and mention code BLOG13JP, you'll save 20% off the standard rate.

Featured Session: Facility of the Future – Single Use Facility, A Case Study from Biogen Idec

Featured Speaker: Chien Lin, Senior Manager, Process Engineering, Global Project Engineering, Biogen Idec, Inc.

About the Session:  In 2012, Biogen Idec completed its first single use disposable manufacturing facility named FVM (Flexible Volume Manufacturing). This new manufacturing facility incorporated many innovative designs and seamlessly integrates operations into its existing facility in RTP (Research Triangle Park). This case study will highlight some of the design feature and intent, compare the cost of construction of this facility versus comparable traditional stainless steel facility, and finally some lessons learned from its first campaign.
