A Regional Biopharmaceutical Supply Symposium

Efficient and agile production of high-quality biopharmaceuticals is a key priority for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. CPI and its industry partners will host this symposium to explore the challenges and opportunities of regional biopharmaceutical supply. Keynote speakers from industry will explain the demand for regional biopharmaceutical manufacturing, and provide a case study of modular, integrated biomanufacturing technology in a regional context. 

From a technology perspective there will be presentations on process automation, data acquisition from process lines, better real-time analytics, improved control strategies and vendor agnostic platforms, which will all enable distributed manufacturing networks. 


  • The Demand for In Country/​Regional Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing – NGO and Health Provider 
  • Modular, Integrated Manufacturing Technology within Pharma – Case study 
  • Process and automation strategy — CPI and Applied Materials 
  • Economic and production capacity analysis of vaccine application — Biopharm Services 
  • Biocomputer technology utilisation — BiologIC Technologies 
  • Critical quality attributes: technology review — SCIEX and CPI 
  • Equipment and consumables supply options ‑Pall Biotech 

After lunch, there will be: 

  • A tour of CPI’s innovation centre with a focus on a demonstration of the technology created as part of an ongoing project, including a small scale modular, integrated mAb production unit scaled for in-country manufacturing. 
  • series of facilitated networking discussion groups covering small biomanufacturing demand and technology. 

The conference will conclude with a networking reception.
