Event | 12 – 13 April, 2023

American Biomanufacturing Summit

Join us in San Francisco – we are at booth 44.

Come and see us at the American Biomanufacturing Summit and hear how Skyland PIMS can help your team with smarter process and data management for clinical and commercial manufacturing.

Read our info sheet “Process Performance Qualification (PPQ): Early adoption of digital process systems puts you in control” to learn how our process information management system, PIMS for short, bridges the data gap between preclinical PD and clinical and commercial-stage manufacturing to ensure that processes are controlled throughout a product’s lifecycle.

As a centralized, single source of truth for your critical manufacturing process data, Skyland PIMS provides data transparency and embedded analytics to both expedite and reduce the risk of your scale-up and tech transfer.

Ken Forman and Brent Rognlie will be leading a workshop “Speed up your development pipeline and get your time back with digital transformation” on Thursday, April 13, 9:25AM PDT.

And don’t forget to join our panel “Effectively navigating the FDA digital landscape across QA/RA” moderated by Scott Weiss on Thursday, April 13, 3:05PM PDT.
