Meet the Continua Team at IFPAC® 2024: March 3-6

February 2, 2024

Learn About the Latest Developments in Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

March 3-6 | Bethesda, MD

IFPAC 2024 ‘Navigating the Future of Advanced Manufacturing’ features key presentations from the Continua Process Systems team. IFPAC is the preeminent forum for insightful discussions about the latest trends and applications in the fields of Continuous Manufacturing, PAT, Process Control, and Data Analytics. Meet our experts at the following sessions:

Digital Twin for Continuously Fed-Batch Bioreactor

Monday 3/4 | 1:05PM-5:40PM | White Flint Amphitheater
Mechanistic models and machine learning models can capture different aspects of process behavior and knowledge. Deploying these models offers the opportunity to improve real-time bioprocess monitoring to reduce risk and optimize production. In this presentation, Continua will demonstrate the development of a digital twin for a bioreactor with both machine learning and mechanistic models running in parallel.

Automation and Digitalization of Drug Manufacturing Processes

Wednesday 3/6 | 1:05PM-5:40PM | Grand Ballroom H
Training and deployment of machine learning for Spectral PAT have been a staple for the likes of drug products and drug substances. As the need for data and processing power to support emerging machine learning and AI applications grows, so too does the need for modernization of the data pipes that support these applications and operations. In this presentation, we will discuss the architecture we used to deploy the mechanistic and machine learning models that made up our mammalian cell bioreactor digital twin. We will talk about moving away from monolithic applications and point-to-point integrations into distributed applications that run with much higher computational potential.
