Bioprocess Knowledge Is Power
Outsourcing can be an effective way to access in-depth bioprocessing expertise, but leaning on external resources can restrict internal learning. Is there a way to get the best of both worlds?

Developing the most efficient and effective bioprocess possible can increase competitiveness by raising facility productivity and reducing the cost of goods of biologic drugs. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. Truly understanding and optimizing a bioprocess requires significant technical competencies. Developing these competencies in house can be expensive, and is typically only an option for highly resourced (and financed) biomanufacturers. An alternative is to outsource production and to take advantage of a contract manufacturer’s technical skills. Outsourcing in this way can, however, restrict the development of in-house capabilities and lead to a reliance on the external manufacturing partner, which is not ideal in the eyes of all companies.
