IFPAC® - 2019

Advancing the Understanding & Control of Manufacturing Processes

PAT Applications in BioTechnology
March 3-6, 2019
North Bethesda, MD, (Washington, D.C.) U.S.A.

Welcome to IFPAC 2019!  

At IFPAC-2019 we have increased our focus on BioTechnology.  View the IFPAC-2018 Press Release.

More Details on IFPAC-2019 Biotechnology Track coming soon!

To support increased biologic drug manufacturing, IFPAC has added a tremendous lineup of sessions, workshops, and discussions focusing on the latest in Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to achieve and maintain drug quality and manufacturing efficiency in the biopharmaceutical arena.  Representatives from the FDA, USDA, NIST, industry leaders and academia from across the globe will be in attendance.

IFPAC's BioTechnology Track bridges with the IFPAC annual event which brings in case studies from industries using PAT for nearly 60 years; providing further opportunities to hear lessons learned that can be applied in the biotechnology industry.

A comprehensive exhibition showcasing the latest instrumentation and services will also be available.

Program Overview

The implementation of Continuous Manufacturing is on the rise in the biotechnology/biopharmaceutical industries in order to achieve the highest product quality and optimal manufacturing efficiency and flexibility.  The use of PAT Applications to monitor biologics-based drug manufacturing in real time, rather than the finished product, is an important area that will be covered during this symposium including new technologies, best practices, case studies, and a look to the future in biotechnology manufacturing.  In addition we will have sessions on BioSimilars and comparisons of real time analytics in small vs. large molecule drug production.

Topics to Include

  • Process Control for Biotechnology/Pharmaceutical
  • Real-Time Monitoring: BioReactors and Bio-Processing
  • Advanced Manufacturing and BioPharmaceuticals (BioManufacturing Consortium)
  • Smart Sensors for Bio-Processing
  • BioSimilars
  • Synergy of Real Time Analytics in Small vs. Large Molecules
  • And more!  View the full program.

IFPAC-2018 will also feature comprehensive Pharmaceutical, Chemical/Petrochemical, OnSite, and Food Safety tracks.


IFPAC is the essential meeting place for the latest developments in Process Analytical Technology...PAT and Quality by Design...QbD within the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Food Industries. IFPAC is known for being a collaborative forum to exchange ideas and network through panel discussions, evening sessions, poster sessions, and the exhibition. For over 30 years IFPAC has brought together practitioners from industry, academia and government to discuss new trends in technology, standards, and controls.
