Vaccines development, regulations and manufacturing Part-2

 

In Part 2, we will review vaccine processes with examples based upon influenza vaccine, inactivated Polio vaccine and an overview of the different types of vaccine production processes from cell expansion, USP and DSP, to the formulation and filling operations to make the finished product. We will talk about vaccine production facilities, how equipment is integrated their operating principles and biological safety levels for containment. Finally, we will look at the vaccine industry today, the supply chain and globalization, and how important vaccines are in pandemic preparedness, availability, and time to market.

Getting Ready for SUT X-Ray Irradiation

Biotech | Pall Corporation webinar series

Why the introduction of X-ray sterilization technology is a critical change for single-use industry, and how gamma and X-ray irradiation compare

 

The market demand for gamma irradiation, the current primary method for the sterilization in SUT, will soon significantly exceed supply, creating an urgent need for alternatives.

 

Join Christelle Marcoux from GSK Vaccines (BioPhorum workstream member on alternatives to gamma sterilization) and James Hathcock, PhD of Pall Corporation (Bio-Process Systems Alliance X-Ray Committee Co-Chair) as they discuss the introduction of X-ray sterilization technology.

 

You will learn more about:

 

  • Why this is a critical change for industry and the responsibilities of each stakeholder
  • Key questions to address for biomanufacturers
  • How gamma and X-ray irradiation compare
  • What testing has been completed and key milestones for readiness for industry
  • An example of how to qualify a SUS sterilized with X-ray irradiation
