“It was a pleasure being at INTERPHEX and participating.  The show and the sessions were a blast.  In my amazement, at the session, all the chairs were filled and many were standing in the back and on the sides. Many attendees stayed afterwards and asked many questions.  INTERPHEX has improved on quality and accessibility for attendees on all fronts and I am glad to be a part of it.”
Robert Dream, Managing Director, HDR Company LLC

“INTERPHEX 2016 is an important platform that allows us to demonstrate to existing and new customers the technical ability and forward thinking of Marchesini Group for the industry.”
Roger Toll, Executive Vice President, Marchesini Group USA

"One of the biggest threats to public health in the U.S. is drug shortages and, in order to solve this growing problem, we have to approach manufacturing in a very different way. Through a public and private partnership, we can create a financially viable, hybrid manufacturing operation where we can ensure quality, consistent drug production and keep costs down. Technology is a major component to making this happen, and that is why INTERPHEX is such an important event - it's where pharmaceutical science and commercialization merge."  
Stephen Spielberg, MD, PhD, CEO and President, Secure Affordable Quality Supply (SAQS) Alliance

“We see INTERPHEX as a key platform to connect with the market, and gauge the pulse of the industry. Undeniably, continuous processing was the talk of the show, and at Pall Life Sciences, we have developed several technologies designed to enable continuous processing in key downstream unit operations, It is extremely valuable to hear the input from customers as we continue to develop this industry leading platform, and create new solutions to continuously improve bioprocessing for the industry. Our team looks forward to sharing our advances in continuous bioprocessing in 2017.”
Michael Egholm, PhD, VP & General Manager of Biopharmaceuticals, Pall Life Sciences
