Many new medicines are highly potent and present additional manufacturing challenges over and above the normal pharmaceutical production issues. Potent entities can be both NCEs and biologics and include cytotoxics, hormones and ADCs.

NEPIC held a very successful conference in 2016 at Piramal’s Morpeth Facility on Continuous Processing and is pleased to present the 2018 conference at Arcinova’s Alnwick site.

This conference will cover a number of aspects of high potency processing including categorisation, process development issues, manufacturers’ perspectives, equipment available and engineering design issues.

Confirmed speakers
Arcinova; Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies; Safebridge Consultants;  YProTech; ProSys Sampling Systems; WH Partnership; Solo Containment; HPAPI Project Services & S3 Processing
