Lecture by Dirk Steinhäuser, 24.04.2024 – 09:30pm | Room 7

Are you planning the expansion or modernization of your pharmaceutical or biotech production or the completely new construction of a manufacturing facility?
We will find a sustainable, individual solution for your investment!

The pharmaceutical industry develops new and more efficient Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API’s) in their Research and Development centers. Time-to-Market is a key requirement for new pharmaceutical products, in particular for new API products. Fast and reliable scale-up methods from laboratory to pilot scale and transfer to commercial production are essential for the successful launch and implementation of new pharmaceutical products as well for the increase of capacity of existing production facilities. Pre-designed and flexible plant concepts enable fast and flexible API production under cGMP conditions.

The presentation will give an overview on a fast and flexible design approach by Glatt’s Engineering division for both chemical API and biotech API projects. Pre-designed and proven plant modules, layout typicals and facility structures are applied to accomplish rapid and ‘first-time-right’ plant conceptualization. The modular approach for both process and facility will be outlined with the help of visual examples for the different modular levels and project objectives. Further key points are:

  • Design principles, critical parameters, flexibility
  • Pre-designed and proven plant modules, layout typicals and facility structures
  • Handling of high potency active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs)
  • Conventional vs. single-use disposable systems
  • Fast track modular building and application of prefabrication
  • Key success factors and challenges

This Glatt’s presentation on ‘Modularization of Pharma chemical API synthesis facilities‘ will take place as part of the Lounges 2024 lecture program.

Visit us at the Lounges from 23  – 25 April 2024 in Karlsruhe, Germany. Let’s discuss in a pleasant atmosphere what we can specifically do for you.

We look forward to seeing you at stand G3.5
