Webinar: Reimagining Data Management for Faster, Smarter Bioprocess Development

Dirty data is one of the biggest impediments to reducing the time to commercial readiness for new biopharmaceuticals. This is because the traditional approach to data capture in bioprocess development is complex. A siloed combination of ELN, LIMS and instrument integrations leads to 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. Data scientists typically spend 80-90% of their time cleaning and reformatting data which leaves very little time for analysis.

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, simplify 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 a digital data backbone
