  • Biopharma Supply Chain Considerations 2021

    Before COVID-19 asked us to drop everything and reallocate so much of the biopharma industry's collective attention, fast-approaching requirements of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) were already placing stress on biopharma supply chain professionals. Notably, biopharmas were busy working to meet the Act's upcoming aggregation requirement, which goes into effect in a little more than two years and calls for a process of creating hierarchical relationships between unique identifiers assigned to packaging containers. It's all part of the November 27, 2023 interoperability timeline, which calls for the entire supply chain (including manufacturers, repackagers, distributors, and dispensers) to demonstrate the unit-level traceability and aggregation requirements mandated by the Act.

  • Outsourcing Fundamentals For Emerging Biopharmas

    One of the most important decisions you'll face in the early stages of your biopharma journey is whether or not to entrust a CDMO (contract development and manufacturing organization) with the development of your molecule. The quality, regulatory, cultural, and longer-term scale-up implications are heavy, and the checklist to ensure your outsourced partner operates as a true extension of your team is long. You'll need to vet their personnel, their finances, their facilities and equipment, their technology infrastructure, their quality and risk management strategies, their communication and transparency, their regulatory commitment and track record, and more.
