Webcast: Biopharma HVAC design in response to COVID-19

May 20, 2020

On Tuesday, May 26, at 2 p.m. EDT, Pharmaceutical Technology magazine, in conjunction with INTERPHEX, will host a webcast on how biopharmaceutical companies can adapt their facilities in response to COVID-19. CRB’s Curt Firestine will share his insights on the topic, especially with regards to HVAC design.

Contamination control has always been a leading concern for biopharma facilities and operations. Facility and HVAC design, process workflows, and standard operating procedures for personnel and equipment are all designed to protect the product and people.

The COVID-19 pandemic requires biopharma companies to look beyond good manufacturing practices to assess how the potential spread of the virus may impact different areas of development and manufacturing facilities, employees, visitors, and product.

In this webcast, experts will review strategies for evaluating practices at existing facilities and will discuss options for designing new facilities that can accommodate future needs, including flexibility requirements and any emerging threats.

Topics include the following:

  • Moving beyond basic maintenance procedures
  • Using airflow modeling and simulation to optimize manufacturing, personnel, and material flow
  • Strategies for rapid process scale up, changeovers, and return to full capacity
  • Implementing science-based design principles for innovative, affordable facility designs
