BioProcess International Awards: Best Technology Application — Upstream (user or supplier)

The 2014 BioProcess International Awards celebrate and recognize the outstanding people, organizations and technologies that have significantly changed, impacted, and advanced the efficiency of biotherapeutic development and manufacturing process ultimately allowing the industry to deliver better, more effective treatments to a global patient base.  We're accepting nominations through June 27, 2014.   In the weeks leading up to the nomination deadline, we'll be spotlighting many of the award categories here. Visit the webpage to find out more.

Today, we spotlight the award for:
Best Technology Application — Upstream (user or supplier)

From the point at which a lead candidate enters development, and through its early production and process development stages, it often receives undue “hype” for as-yet unmet promises of success. The winner in this category will offer more than hype: It will have shown through adoption and application of an existing technology or development of its own materials and methods that it is paving the way toward a new approach to process design or a new apparatus that shows well-documented improvement over existing equipment. The winner may, alternatively, be a software program or other automated system that helps reduce contamination as well as product variability; in upstream applications, the winner may be able to document hitherto unreachable titers through application of its own or a supplier’s technology. The possibilities are many and varied, and the award will be given to the nomination that offers the best documentation and justification.

The BioProcess International Awards will be handed out this October at the BioProcess International event in Boston.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Jennifer Pereira.
