UPSTREAM BIOPROCESSING: IMPROVING EFFICIENCY THROUGH DIGITAL TOOLS
People Are Key to the
Digital Evolution of Biopharma
B
iopharmaceutical industry adoption of digital
manufacturing techniques-those in which
process data is used to model and control
processes-has increased in recent years.
According to analysis by PwC, emerging challenges
like globalization, supply chain complexity, price, and
cost pressure have helped the biopharmaceutical
industry overcome its previous reluctance and embrace
innovation. Similarly, Bain & Co says cost pressure has
prompted industry to invest in digital manufacturing.
These views are shared by Véronique Chotteau,
PhD, of Sweden's Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)
cell technology group, who says biopharma adoption
of digital manufacturing is accelerating.
" There is a clear movement towards digitalization
in the biopharmaceutical industry, " according to
Chotteau, who coordinates an EU project developing
in-line sensors and high-throughput miniaturized
bioreactors for industrial use.
" The range of applications for digitalization within
bioprocessing is very large, stretching from Internet
of Things (IoT), cloud and database handling, to automation
and systems based on mathematical models. "
And the change is being driven by large pharma
companies willing to invest in the necessary infrastructure,
Chotteau adds, citing AstraZeneca's use of
digitization and lean manufacturing at its facility in
Södertälje, Sweden, as an example.
