The BioPhorum plug and play standard was conceived and developed through an industry-wide collaboration to enable the rapid deployment of modular equipment in biopharmaceutical facilities. The standard, co-developed by equipment providers, automation suppliers, and end-users, provides a common structure for defining an equipment’s automation capability. It utilizes existing and proven industry communication standards, eliminating the need for custom communication interfaces. BioPhorum estimates that a manufacturer utilizing the standard would save considerable costs in engineering and validation during the construction of a new manufacturing facility. Eliminating custom interface development can save weeks and even months in deploying automated equipment.
