Biomanufacturing Shows Signs of Maturity

In biopharmaceutical manufacturing today, quality management is critical for steering clear of production problems, capacity bottlenecks, and operation failures. The good news is that manufacturers appear to be doing a better job over the past 10 years. 
In or "9th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Capacity and Production", we evaluated, along with more than 80 other biomanufacturing trends, the frequency of batch failures among global biomanufactureres. We weighted information shared by 302 respondents to estimate the batch failure rate for the industry. Based on responses, batch failures occur on average every 60.3 weeks per facility. This is a significant improvement over last year's average of 54.5 weeks, and shows a continuing trend over the past five years. Indeed, in 2008, we found batch failures occur every 40.6 weeks. This means that in five years, the batch failure rate as improved by 49%
