Bio pharmaceutical plant design and manufacturing principles IntroductionThe standards and requirements for APIs within the context of new drug application are described in this paper. The importance of the guidelines about the processes regarding manufacture of drugs along with biologic APIs is underlined. This includes the veterinary products also. The procedures and infrastructure needed for chemical isolation and purification processes for APIs are examined. The discussion and the analysis in this paper is regarding the needs of present good manufacturing practices. The important practices will be about processing, packing and holding.
The storage place for the pharmaceutical ingredients is important in the construction of the facility regarding it. The manufacturing principles should be according to the Good manufacturing principles regulations. These are framed for finished pharmaceutical products. The identification of the CGMP guidelines for the manufacturing of APIs are important. These must reflect in the clinical trials also. This is important for a company that have processing units for DNA vaccines. The useful engineering and construction activities for the processing activities in the plant are discussed. The various steps taken form initial to the final purification stages are identified.
The construction needs of those requirements are identified and analysed. Avoiding the adulteration is an important concept in manufacturing of pharmaceutical processes. The standards maintained in the facility should avoid the adulteration. For this adherence to the strict principles are necessary. The practices that are capable of bringing a positive effect on quality and purity of the APIs are considered can be good management practices. The strict adherence to CGMPs while producing the APIs is needed. The principles about processing controls, sampling and testing need documentation.
Necessities in a biopharmaceutical manufacturing Facility Construction requirementsDesign and ConstructionDifferent facilities are required to create flow for the raw materials, intermediates and APIs in the facility. The flow created must avoid the contamination. The wrong mix-ups also can be termed as contamination. The possibility of wrong mixing will result in contamination also. These can occur in flowing process. By defining areas according to the need and control systems contamination and wrong mixing can be avoided. For this purpose, feasible design, size, construction and location are needed for a pharmaceutical facility.
The location and the nature of construction is also important for the pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Sufficient space is needed for the disciplined arrangement of the substances. This enables the processes of cleaning, avoiding the contamination of raw materials to be done in time and with perfection. The next aspect to be considered in this chapter is the process of manufacturing and processing operations in it. The facilities, which provide the arrangements for the flow of the operations, can be considered as the part of the processing facilities.
The products should be packaged and labelled after the manufacturing. The quantitative storage is as important as the qualitative one. The quantitative storage depends upon the demand for the products of the company. So, this facility must be constructed in a manner to easily extend in future. When we consider the qualitative arrangements in storage facilities, the facility should provide storage at all the temperatures. The temperatures should range from sub zero to higher temperatures. Generally it is well known that the pharmaceutical products are stored in cool places, more space can be provided for that.
