At the end of the registration process, after you select your registration category, you will have the option to choose the Floor Tour you are interested in. There is no cost to attend either INTERPHEX or Exhibit Hall Technology Floor Tours.
OSD Technologies Tour – "Multi-Product Facilities…There is More to Them Then Cleaning"
Tour Leaders: Sam Halaby, Russ Somma, PhD, Mike Vileikis
The continued success of a Multi-Product Facility depends on operational areas designed with multi-functionality. Multi-functionality design allows for the flexibility to change out unit operations for various drug products, as well as the capability to "scale-out" to accommodate the dynamics of capacity, market demand, and product changes.
Tour attendees will gain insight on designing successful flexible operational areas that can accommodate numerous types of process equipment, execute various functional operations, and allow for an equipment change-out and functional overhaul. Additionally, attendees will find out how take advantage of the latest modular equipment that are offered by selected tour vendors.
Participating Exhibitors: Biopharma Systems/Telstar Life Sciences, ChargePoint Technology, Fette America, The Fitzpatrick Company, GEA Process Engineering Inc, Gerteis Maschinen & Process Engineering AG, ILC Dover, LP, LB Bohle LLC, Sani-Matic Inc, Walker Barrier Systems
Advanced Aseptic Technologies Tour – "The Latest Innovations in Aseptic Barrier Filling Technology"
Tour Leaders: Sterling Kline, RA; Jason Collins, RA. NCARB; Rob Roy, PE; Jerrod Shook
Innovation in Aseptic barrier filling technology continues to improve. This Tour offers the opportunity to see the evolving 4th generation of barrier technology which continues to simplify and shorten manufacturing processes. Leading industry vendors offer new introductions and current trends in aseptic processing along with meeting current regulatory expectations.
Tour attendees will gain insight into the latest innovations in fully integrated process of aseptic manufacturing and how to take advantage of the latest equipment that is offered by vendors and internationally recognized experts.
Participating Exhibitors: Bausch & Stroebel Machine Company, BOSCH Packaging Technology, Groninger USA L.L.C., IMA Life North America Inc, Optima Pharma, Rommelag Inc, USA, SKAN
Biomanufacturing Technologies Tour – "Biomanufacturing"
Tour Leaders: Jeff Odum, CPIP; Chuck Stock, CxA
With increasing insights into product requirements and product characterization, the critical path for the development of new products is shifting to process development and manufacturing timelines where speed and flexibility are critical. Future manufacturing systems must be agile enough to deliver more types of products in a shorter timeframe.
Tour attendees will gain insight on identifying new enabling technologies and innovative solutions that provide a platform to support biomanufacturing operational excellence, including efficiency, flexibility and reducing overall costs.
Participating Exhibitors: Applikon Biotechnology Inc, EMD Millipore Corp, GE Healthcare, Pall Life Sciences, Sartorius-Stedim, Thermo Scientific
Modular Construction Technologies Tour – "Optimizing Execution with Modular Construction"
Tour Leaders: John Gilroy, PE; Gene Martini, PE
This Tour offers a different way to think about modular facilities and achieving flexible environments. Today, modular is much more than a completed facility organized in shipping container sized units. For smaller expansion and upgrade projects within existing facilities, plant owners can take advantage of customized modular product delivery to reduce overall project schedules, increase quality with minimal disruption to site operations, and potentially realize cost benefits.
Tour attendees will learn how to take advantage of modular options and employ custom modularization options in order to accelerate commercial construction and achieve a flexible manufacturing environment.
Participating Exhibitors: AES Clean Technology Inc., AWS Bio-Pharma Technologies LLC, Biologics Modular, Cotter Brothers Corporation, GE Healthcare, G-CON
