(NORWALK, Conn., November 12, 2010) – The organizers of INTERPHEX and members of its 2011 Advisory Board have announced the initial roster of programs for the upcoming event, which will be held at New York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on March 29 – 31, 2011. The INTERPHEX educational program will feature sessions on key topics affecting biopharmaceutical manufacturing, under the heightened criteria the board instituted earlier this year.
The 2011 technical sessions will include:
- Continuous Manufacturing: A Regulatory Perspective
- Rapid Deployment of a Single-Use Biotech Facility
- User Experiences with Pre-Fabricated Containment Solutions
- The Role of "Context" in Converting Process Data into Process Information
- Establishing Design Space for Lyophilized Drug Products
- A Paradigm Shift from Qualitative to Quantitative: The Practical Approach to Six Sigma
- Scale Up: A Novel Approach to an Age-Old Challenge in the Pharmaceutical Industry
The topics were selected following peer-review for relevance and quality, and their value includes knowledge transferable across dosage forms, company size and of use to all professionals following cGMPs as practiced in the industry, proposed by organizations and enforced by regulators. All sessions will be moderated by an advisory board member.
Complementing the technical program will be two Luncheon Roundtable presentations, sponsored by BioProcess International, that will focus on vaccines and cell therapies.
Three Signature Series presentations, sponsored by Pharmaceutical Technology, will also be held on the INTERPHEX Main Stage, including a return of the popular State of the Outsourcing Industry report by Jim Miller, President of PharmSource.
Also returning will be the Poster Sessions on the exhibit floor, which were launched in 2010 to showcase current innovations in research and technology.
"The knowledge available at INTERPHEX 2011 will permeate the event, through the technical curriculum, presentations by industry leaders, and an expended schedule of networking sessions that will enable peers and subject matter experts to connect on an individual basis," said Cindy Strachan, Director of Industry Development at INTERPHEX. "We will also be continuing enhancements to the show floor that proved so popular in 2010."
This includes the organization of the show floor into industry segments, resulting in exhibitor zones: Facilities, Manufacturing, Automation Systems & Controls and Sourcing & Services. Winners of the Facility of the Year Award competition, sponsored by the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE), INTERPHEX and Pharmaceutical Processing magazine will again be showcased in Facilities.
