Reimagining Data Management for Faster, Smarter BioProcess Development

The traditional approach to data capture in bioprocess development is a combination of ELN, LIMS, and instrument integrations, which create blind spots throughout the BioPharma lifecycle.

Like cooking in a messy kitchen, it’s hard to discover and apply process findings in such a disjointed data landscape.

IDBS’ Polar BioProcess is designed to simplify how data is captured and contextualized within a digital data backbone, to make process understanding easier and more efficient.

Polar BioProcess provides an end-to-end solution for process/data tracking from early development through manufacturing, providing the capacity to perform comprehensive analytics, generate simplified tech transfer, and reduce time to commercial milestones.

In this session, you will learn: 

  • Current challenges in bioprocess development digitalization
  • Best practices for laying the foundation for advanced analytics, AI/ML
  • Business benefits of digital data backbone
