We conclude our series on improving cell therapy manufacturing with a closer look at the review by exception process. In the manufacturing process of cell therapeutics, product cycle times are extremely short and any exceptions occurring during the production process must be found and addressed quickly. Emerson’s Bob Schiros notes that manufacturing execution systems, such […]

Manufacturing processes have long been paper-based with log entries, initialing, signoffs and other transactions to manually record. While automation systems have captured some of this manual recordkeeping, they have not been able to capture everything. In batch manufacturing processes that produce thousands of batches each year, maintaining paper records for each batch is a time-consuming, […]

Medicines produced by pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers are manufactured in many ways. One particular type of treatment, cell therapy, is defined as: …the transplantation of human or animal cells to replace or repair damaged tissue. From a manufacturing perspective, each therapeutic batch must be perfect the first time — because each batch is produced for […]
