Best practice workflows

Drive efficiency, quality, and insight

The journey towards the vision of Biopharma 4.0 starts with improved process understanding and characterization. Accelerate return on investment and reduce implementation risk with out-of-the-box workflows and reports that mirror core bioprocess development and sampling activities from cell line development through to analytical development.

Polar BioProcess workflows offer out-of-the-box biological inventory management linked to a comprehensive data model, thereby maintaining the genealogy of product development and enabling the inputs and outputs of each unit operation to support the execution of adjacent steps.​ Capture process data at the point of execution in a consistent and standardized manner and automate calculations to remove the burden and risks associated with manual transcription. ​The result is better documented process execution and reporting to help you develop more robust, scalable and transferable bioprocesses.
