Revolutionizing Drug Production: A Shift to Continuous Manufacturing

Batch production is time consuming yet remains a popular and time-tested method used in the pharma industry today - but some industry leaders, along with the FDA, have taken steps toward or are now contemplating a shift to continuous manufacturing. This means all stages of drug production run through to the final product, without a stop during its production, thus shut down of equipment between “batches” is required, which eliminates down time.  CM  saves time and reduces the likelihood for human error, but is it realistic at this point in time? In this episode we cover the pros and cons in transitioning to a continuous manufacturing system.
