Learn How to Build Reliable Quality and Manufacturability into Your Product

The drive toward late development requires a significant increase in financial commitment. This makes it all the more important that the moment you receive regulatory approval, everything is in place for a rapid and efficient move into production. What you do at this critical stage will determine your success later.

This half-day seminar will cut straight to the bedrock science underlying the development of a process that is robust, reliable and repeatable. Core topics will include:

QbD – Establishing expectations, issues and challenges
Scale-Up – Building a robust process suited for every stage
Technology Transfer – How to move with efficiency across a facility or around the world
Regulatory Compliance – Informed planning to avoid costly, unnecessary delays

Our experts will answer your questions through interactive Q&A sessions after each presentation. There will also be opportunities for scientific discussions during the networking lunch at the start of the proceedings. In addition, Patheon would like to offer the opportunity to tour our modern facilities at Bourgoin and to join the Patheon team at a networking reception.
