#134 - Batch to Continuous Pharmaceutical Processing Challenges (T5007)
For most companies in the pharmaceutical industry, converting a batch API process into continuous process is likely to go beyond being a technical challenge to the development chemists and engineers. Supporting groups in regulatory, EHS and Quality roles will also be impacted. In this session we want to identify and explore the big challenges facing the development of continuous processes and the conversion of batch to continuous processes.
