Innovative direct dispense technology to ensure in-time delivery and release during continuous biomanufacturing


On demand


In biologic manufacturing, caking is a phenomen that can affect a wide range of hygroscopic solid raw materials and excipients. Apart from the sourcing and logistics considerations for these materials and the direct costs related to caking, lost batches due to unreliable product supply, inconsistent product quality or inconsistent product release are other challenges that companies must overcome.

This webinar will highlight the J.T.Baker® direct dispense platform, an innovative packaging technology for the storage and dispensing of pre-weighed solid raw materials and excipients.

Topics include:

  • Large scale biopharmaceutical manufacturing challenges and opportunities
  • Improvements in flexibility and process economics through continous and single system based process offers
  • Case study: how the J.T.Baker® direct dispense platform aided a customer in de-clumping material in their buffer preparation

Presented as part of the Avantor webinar programme in June 2019.
