Vaccine Manufacturing Facilities of the Future

Presented at: Informa Life Sciences Vaccines EuropeLondon, UK, 2010 Dec 1-2, 2010

While the diverse technology platforms used for the production of vaccines make it difficult to standardize facility design and equipment, recent advances in bioprocessing technology will have a definite impact on vaccine manufacturing facilities of the future. The rapid advance of single-use and disposable-format bioreactors and other technologies for rapid and efficient production of vaccines coupled with increased development of cell culture based methods for their manufacture will enable smaller, more flexible facilities. Based on this a concept for modular biomanufacturing facilities which incorporates multi-product capabilities, maximum flexibility, and disposable technologies will be presented.
