Last week, ISPE's SF-Bay Area Chapter hosted a full-day symposium on Single-Use Technologies (SUT). Hosted by Genentech’s Adam Goldstein and Ken Hamilton, and chaired by Delta PM's very own Feras Al-Zubaidy, this event presented an honest assessment of the state-of-the-art single-use technologies in bio-manufacturing. Speakers from Lonza, Genentech, CRB, Bayer, BioMarin, Fluor, Atara, and Boehringer Ingelheim shared their experiences, successes, best practices, and hopes for common solutions to shared challenges. Discussions encompassed SUT ROI Modeling, Manufacturing Facility Design, Material Selection, and SUS Integration for Plant Automation, as part of several key topics.
Nearly 300 people from across the Nation came out to participate by asking thought-provoking questions and sharing their successes and best practices with the speakers and fellow attendees. Networking breaks and a cocktail reception provided ample opportunities for deeper discussion and sharing.
Many thanks to Germaine Bickel, Carmen Farnan, Simon Fong, Antony Bonifacio, and the rest of the amazing Genentech crew, the ISPE SF-Bay Area Chapter, and all the speakers and attendees for making this event a huge success. Looking forward to continuing these conversations and seeing you at future events!
