CGT actors and process maps: Who does what in the supply of different cell and gene therapies

This document contains a set of reference models explaining who needs to be involved in the supply of different types of Cell and Gene Therapies (CGTs) and, at a very high level, what they do. It can be used by anyone who wishes to better understand the manufacture and delivery of CGTs, and in
particular how IT systems can support that.

Trace element variation for chemically defined cell culture media: biopharmaceutical industry requirements and cross-company collaboration to mitigate risks

Trace element variation for chemically defined cell culture media: biopharmaceutical industry requirements and cross-company collaboration to mitigate risks

A proactive risk-based approach to understanding key factors that can introduce product variability is necessary to avoid delays. One such factor identified is elemental impurity variability introduced by cell culture media. Though the impact of the variability will differ, it is important
that both manufacturers and supply partners understand the sources of elemental impurities and perform risk assessments to identify mitigation strategies. Such assessments will allow an understanding of the level of risk, and what steps may be taken to dissipate it. This paper is an effort to drive regulatory bodies, drug manufacturers, supply partners and N-1 suppliers toward a common understanding of the problem and possible solutions that can be taken towards risk mitigation. Though there may not be a single or ideal solution for this issue, a common rational approach can be taken by all parties to understand the impact on their processes and products, to drive identification of mitigation strategies.

The benefits of progressively more sophisticated lab instrument integration in the quality control labs

The benefits of progressively more sophisticated lab instrument integration in the quality control labs

QC labs play a key role across biopharmaceutical organizations to ensure product quality and patient safety. However, they have yet to achieve full digital maturity. Poor digitalization and integration have led to many non-optimal solutions for labs, such as workarounds and tailored solutions that are too expensive to upgrade. Often teams cannot take advantage of the latest innovations. With the help of this document, advocates for change can persuade other stakeholders to raise their game by showing the opportunity for significant benefits. The origins of this analysis in cross-industry collaboration and alignment represent a weight of common intent that should not be ignored.
