5 Tips To Optimize The Biomanufacturing Supply Chain
By Rick Johnston, Ph.D. Founder & Principal, Bioproduction Group, BIO-G
This white paper addresses ways of modeling biomanufacturing networks that explicitly account for supply chain risks. Capturing the likelihood and effect of risks is a critical first step in determining how much inventory is needed to buffer against adverse events, and therefore the level of safety stocks that are required.


How RFID Is Changing The Pharma Cold Chain
By Lee Marts, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs Manager, American Thermal Instruments, Inc
Many companies consider wireless technologies to improve temperature monitoring efficiency. RFID is a primary component of this approach. In common usage for the past 20 years, RFID loggers (i.e. tags) store product information in a similar fashion to bar codes. Unlike bar codes, however, they wirelessly transmit data without requiring a clear sightline or close contact with a reader.

 

Now in its 14th year, TIDES® continues to build upon its reputation as the place to meet all the important players in the oligonucleotide and peptide therapeutics industries, from discovery all the way through manufacturing. Attendees will have access to all four conference tracks:

Spotlight On Supply Chain

Quality In The Global Pharmaceutical Supply Chain
Although regulations and guidelines are already in place in multiple industries, supply chain complexity has grown from simple domestic sourcing, manufacturing, and distribution, to a complex evolution of global sourcing, manufacturing, and distribution centers around the world.


Securing Provision K Status For A Client's API Helps To Expedite Shipping And Reduce U.S. Importation Costs
Importing APIs into the United States is guided by a sometimes arcane set of regulations and involves a complex interplay between FDA and the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency. The following case study is an example of how Marken helped a client avoid inappropriate duty charges and expedite importation of its API into the United States.


Does Joint Auditing Work? A Look Into The Rx-360 Pilot Program
Rx-360, an international pharmaceutical and biotech industry supply chain consortium, has set up a program of joint audits. The goal of this project is to expand audit coverage and reduce duplicated audit efforts. Here we discuss how the joint audits work and what the advantages are for both pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers.


Why Air Cargo Is A Viable Solution For Transporting Medical And Pharmaceutical Products
The ecosystem tied to the movement of medical and pharmaceutical products is complex and highly distributed. Shippers and receivers for these live-saving products are spread out around the country, and there are no centralized routes between them.
