New vaccine process designs – and all the kinks that go with them – are typically hammered out in a small scale capacity, for example, prior to manufacturing for early phase human clinical trials. They are then upsized and further defined for industrial scale to supply the vast market. Single-use technologies (SUTs) have been a hot topic for several years now and their advantages well-known: easy product changeover, processing in lower classification areas, reduced CAPEX, elimination of glass, sterility assurance, to name a few. In vaccine manufacturing, SUTs are used throughout the processing stages, from cell culture all the way to filling. SUTs are quickly and conveniently designed, purchased and implemented for short-term manufacturing of clinical trial phase materials. Here a large percentage of new vaccines in Research and Development do not even make it to market.
As the final production stages are critical as they are the last stages before patient injection, the scope of thisarticle covers SU applications involving drug substance formulations, adjuvant processing, final bulk formulation and filling. The actual process itself may include some or all of the following: filtration, pumping, ingredient addition, mixing, adsorption, filling, labelling, sampling and and storage.
In this presentation only liquid formulations (“presentations”) will be discussed.

By the time sophisticated cyber criminals gain access to your network, they may already possess incredible insight into the culture, infrastructure, security and day-to-day operations of your company. How are they able to obtain such information? Reconnaissance is the FIRST stage in remote exploitation performed in a targeted attack and can take place over a period of days, weeks or even years prior to the attacker ever delivering his first phishing email. Just what sensitive information has your company, your employees, your vendors or your customers made publicly available, either knowingly or inadvertently? Though a tweet or social media post may be harmless on its own, in aggregate, a company may suffer a weakened security posture if details such as key individuals, sensitive projects, financial projections and internal politics are disclosed in a public forum.This talk will focus on ways you can access and reduce your online disclosures. Take the "win" out of reconnaissance for the attacker by cutting off his pre-attack intelligence sources.Read more >
