9:45 am - 10:20 am Defining Your Disposable Solutions Parameters – a Cell Therapy Case Study

Amy Shaw - Senior Scientist, Cell Therapy, Torque Therapeutics
- Asses the disposable technology currently available to decide whether it makes sense to move to a 100%
disposable facility or to use a hybrid system
- Create a spectrum of challenge and implement the most straightforward disposable components before
tackling the more complex
- Devise a cost benefit analysis to analyse at what point you should increase disposable uptake to move
towards 100%

11:20 am - 11:50 am Reverse Engineer Your Processes With The Final Requirements In Mind

Nadav Eshkol - Technology and Process Development Manager, Pluristem Therapeutics
- Discuss how to identify what your product’s post market commitments are likely to look like at the
beginning of the development cycle to ensure you design your manufacturing process to meet your
development requirements
- Minimise your ongoing production changes and maximise process reliability by commencing your
production and technology adoption with the end in mind
- Analyse the process impact on embedding scalability and flexibility at the beginning rather than end of
the design process
- Examine the cost benefit metrics around complete investment at the beginning rather than on a gradual
model
