Quality by Design: You Can’t Manage What You Don’t Measure
Discover »Develop »Manufacture

Pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers face unprecedented pressures today as they strive to bring safe, cost effective new treatments to market as efficiently as possible. For the past few years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been encouraging the industry to take a more scientific approach to drug development and manufacturing. With the mantra of “Quality by Design,” the Agency has promised regulatory flexibility to those who know their processes and who can control and improve them.

Getting a process right the first time requires a deep understanding of risk, as well as the factors that are critical to product safety and quality, starting at the beginning of the R&D cycle.

Modeling and statistical analysis are essential, but they won’t work without data---measurements of critical parameters within the process as it evolves from preclinical to clinical, scaleup and manufacturing stages.

Uniting the broad capabilities of Thermo Electron and Fisher Scientific, Thermo offers capabilities ranging from informatics and bioinformatics tools, to help speed the discovery process, to analytical tools that will help optimize both small molecule and biopharma process development and manufacturing.
