Early-Stage Adoption of Flow Chemistry to Avoid Waste of Capital Investment


Flow chemistry stands as a valuable tool to make the process development stage of your drug development cycle more efficient. This workshop explores the potential of adopting flow chemistry earlier into your process development and how this can attract investment for your flow manufacturing process.

It will specifically focus on:

  • Benefits of early adoption of flow process
  • Complying with regulatory guidance to develop your flow process
  • Appropriate strategical approach when developing your flow process
  • Conversion of flow process from early to late-stage processes

9:00 – 11:30
Workshop A

12:00 – 14:00
Workshop B

Scaling Up from Lab to Commercialization


Executing the best strategy for scaling up can prove challenging. Collective Workshop Leaders: experience shows that the most common and difficult challenges encountered during flow process scaleups are particle formation, liquid/ liquid separation, agitation, and the presence of trace impurities. This workshop will focus on the best approach when you are scaling up from a lab setting to a manufacturing process.

It will specifically focus on:

  • Appropriate strategy to implement before you starts scale up
  • Selection of the right equipment: pumps, reactors, tubing
  • Setting up of the relevant equipment (including modular set ups)
  • Preventing common challenges e.g., clogging
  • Reduction of waste
  • Reusing materials
