The multi-modal manufacturing movement - you don't need to know the future to be ready for it

Contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) need the flexibility to respond to ever-evolving client needs. Likewise, manufacturers who are bringing their ATMP production activities in-house have complex product pipelines and need the flexibility to develop different modalities in parallel, unsure of which will ultimately go to market. Both are united by the same challenge: they need a facility that can accommodate a pipeline of four or five product types, each requiring a highly sensitive process.

But designing a bespoke production suite unique to each modality would lead to astronomical costs and a sprawling, inefficient facility. Why not fight cancer with an mAb product? Fight a pandemic with a vaccine platform? Do it all in the same manufacturing suite, weeks apart. Hypersonic speed-to-market, powered by a new breed of highly responsive multi-modal facility design is upon us.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to easily scale your facility as pipeline evolves
  • How to get up and running with industry-leading rapid deployment
  • How to protect investments with a flexible and adaptable facility
