Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual
Single-Use Technologies and Continuous Processing
Advancing Bioprocessing through Technological Innovation
January 9-10, 2017 | Hilton San Diego Bayfront | San Diego, CA

The steady adoption of single-use technologies and subsequent move toward continuous processing (CP) for clinical and commercial manufacture have created a great need to evaluate the risks, challenges, opportunities and strategies for implementing these types of technologies into modern-day bioprocessing. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual Single-Use Technologies and Continuous Processing conference once again gathers technology and equipment providers, end users, and regulators to discuss innovative approaches to current challenges, update companies on the trends in technology, share case studies on successful implementation, and ultimately identify how to derive as much value as possible from these technological advances.

We invite presentation proposals on the following preliminary topics:

Highlighting the Value and Advantages of Single-Use and Continuous Processing

Technological Advances in Single-Use Technologies and Continuous Processing Equipment

Standardization and Best Practices for Single-Use Technologies and Systems

  • Definition and Benefits of Standardization
  • Areas for Standardization, Guidelines and Best Practices

Challenges to Industrial Adoption and Commercial Implementation

  • Regulatory Challenges
  • Process Complexity and Control Challenges
  • Contamination: Extractables and Leachables
  • Scale and Downstream Process Limitations

Complementing Continuous Processing with Single-Use Technologies

  • Single-Use Perfusion Bioreactors for Upstream Cell Culture

Continuous Processing in Downstream Manufacturing: Overcoming Downstream Scale

Limitations of Single-Use Technologies

Case Studies of Continuous Processing

Challenges and Limitations in Continuous Processing

Designing the Facility of the Future – Disposable, Continuous and Modular

Please click here to submit a speaking proposal for review.

Deadline for submission: May 27, 2016

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference will be given to abstracts from those within pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, regulators and those from academic centers. Additionally, as per CHI policy, a select number of vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
