An on-site testing facility is helping to strengthen Parker Bioscience Filtration’s presence in the global biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry.
The SciLog Suite, which was opened at Parker Bioscience Filtration’s Birtley, UK site in 2019, provides personnel from across the biopharma sector with the opportunity to undertake interactive demonstrations with Parker Bioscience Filtration’s automated single-use bioprocessing systems and run trials to determine how the equipment can be used to optimize their processes. The facility is also used for in-depth training of operators and engineers.
Since its launch, personnel from countries including France, Germany, Ireland, Russia, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, as well as the UK, have used the SciLog Suite at the Birtley site.
The SciLog Suite features the SciLog SciPure FD system, which automates, standardizes and encloses final bulk filtration and dispense operations. Biopharmaceutical manufacturers are able to use this testing facility to gain a greater understanding of how their bulk filling processes could be improved through enclosure and automation.
Last year, Parker Bioscience Filtration opened the doors to new, expanded facilities at its Birtley site. These included new state-of-the-art office and conferencing spaces, extended laboratories and new clean room, manufacturing and testing facilities.
With another site in Oxnard, California, Parker Bioscience Filtration supports companies both locally and globally in improving process control, efficiency and supply chain security throughout their production and packaging processes.
Commenting on the success of the SciLog Suite, David Heaney, market development manager at Parker Bioscience Filtration, said: “We are dedicated to working closely with organisations across international biopharmaceutical manufacturing and strengthening their operations with systems such as the SciLog SciPure FD system.
“We created the SciLog Suite as a resource for our international customer base and we’re pleased that it is now helping companies to optimise processes and generate greater efficiencies.”
