Revolutionizing Biopharm Manufacturing: The Future of Bioprocessing

Lisa Bero

Bioprocessing in the pharmaceutical industry refers to the use of biological systems, such as living cells or enzymes, to produce therapeutic drugs and other valuable products. This innovative approach harnesses the power of biological agents to manufacture complex molecules, like proteins and antibodies that are difficult or impossible to synthesize through traditional chemical methods. The process involves various stages, starting with cell cultivation in bioreactors, where nutrients and environmental conditions are carefully controlled to promote cell growth and product formation. Once the cells have produced the desired compounds, downstream processing steps, including purification and formulation, are employed to isolate and refine the target molecule.
