4 | SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 | T he next major step for the biopharmaceutical industry could be the adoption of integrated continuous bioprocessing on a broad scale for biologics manufacturing. The biopharma industry's interest in continuous processing is driven by expectations of reducing cost, improving quality, and increasing productivity. The key to its success, however, is the availability of novel upstream and downstream technologies that will not only reduce facility footprint and capital expenses but will also increase process flexibility and further facilitate the utilization of single-use and/or disposable technologies. GEN put together this special supplement on continuous bioprocessing to give our readers up-to-date information about the current state of the approach and to suggest when and where it will be more widely adopted. The articles include: • Continuous Bioprocessing Is Coming • Integrated Continuous Manufacturing of Biologics: Trends in the Field • Continuous Bioprocessing: Is It for Everyone? • Moving toward Continuous Bioprocessing • Bioburden Control in Continuous Capture of Monoclonal Antibodies • Single-Use Sensors in Continuous Bioprocessing • MilliporeSigma Sees Promising Opportunity in Continuous Processing • Case Study: Insulin Increases Influenza Virus Yield As you learn more about continuous bioprocessing, from this GEN supplement and other sources, you might decide it's worth exploring for your own company's biomanufacturing operations. We wish you the best of success in all your bioprocessing activities. From the Editor in Chief John Sterling CO N T I N U O U S B I O P R O C E S S I N G
