Pharmaceutical Process Scale-Up
The scale up of a pharmaceutical process has many hidden pitfalls that can challenge a successful project. A pharmaceutical process may be done in a laboratory by technicians who accomplish labor intensive tasks quite easily to allow a process to be successful. Transition of a small chemical process from a laboratory to full production for a chemical reaction or process needs to be done correctly, but typically involves a bigger reactor vessel pumps and heat exchangers. Some pharmaceutical processes involve some very labor intensive and aseptic requirements that are difficult to duplicate in large scale production. A realistic mock example will be discussed with a concentration on aseptic large scale production techniques. This will be of general interest to Consultants whose work leads to product scale up.
