Integrating Equipment Design, Logistics Processes and Real-Time Informatics: The Arrival of QbD in Pharmaceutical Logistics, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Industry expert Mark W. Sawicki, Ph.D., chief commercial officer at Cryoport to discuss the Quality by Design process as it relates to logistics and evaluate its benefits during a live broadcast on Tuesday, July 11, 2017

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 23, 2017) - Quality by Design (QbD) is a concept that has become mainstream in the pharmaceutical manufacturing space in recent years. QbD is a science- and risk-based approach to quality that identifies, measures and defines the critical processes that impact quality and provides a pathway to introduce quality and risk management into the design process.

The QbD concept within logistics cannot be implemented without an in-depth understanding of the equipment and processes by which critical pharmaceutical commodities are packaged and shipped. The key to QbD implementation is the ability to measure and preemptively control variation in real time using modern tools such as GPS-enabled data loggers. In addition to providing the ability to measure and understand the in-transit variation that exists, GPS data loggers collect critical data to help forecast, analyze and design process controls to eliminate the deleterious effects of the observed variation, using three basic activities:

  1. Evaluate the actual performance of the equipment and in-transit processes
  2. Compare the actual performance of the equipment and in-transit processes with goals
  3. Act on any discrepancies observed during the in-transit process

Automating the risk management process through effective use of QbD using real-time informatics is a critical consideration when contemplating support of any commercial pharmaceutical product. Informatics that can capture, interpret and provide automated alerts and pre-defined escalation protocols based on the nature of the data captured for hundreds if not thousands of concurrent shipments will be critical in the effective launch of next generation therapies. QbD processes provide the foundation enabling such an approach to be effective.
