Optimizing Bioprocessing Techniques for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Author(s): Angelica Ray

Pharmaceutical bioprocessing refers to the use of biological systems, such as cells, microorganisms, or enzymes, to produce pharmaceutical products, including therapeutic drugs, vaccines, and biologics. This process involves various stages of development, optimization, and production to ensure the efficient and cost-effective manufacturing of pharmaceutical products using living organisms. The process begins with the identification and selection of suitable cell lines or microorganisms that can express the desired pharmaceutical product efficiently. Upstream Processing: This stage involves the cultivation and growth of the selected cell lines or microorganisms in bioreactors under controlled conditions. The cells are provided with appropriate nutrients, temperature, pH, and oxygen supply to promote optimal growth and productivity.
