Strategies for Scale-up & Scale-out

Guest Editor: Prof. Nik Willoughby, Heriot-Watt University, UK

This spotlight will examine the latest innovative solutions and critical issues around product scale-up and scale-out. Discussions will be centered around the following topics:

  • Key cost drivers of scalability and measures to overcome comparability and scale-up challenges in cell therapy production.
  • Process development technologies and facility design options for scale up of allogeneic cell therapies and approaches for GMP-compliant scale up platforms.
  • Advances in microfluidic technologies for the scale up of cell and gene therapies.
  • Manufacturing models and regulatory considerations for the scale out of autologous cell therapy products;
  • Challenges in developing scale-out manufacturing processes.
