Security Of Supply For Chromatography Media

Source: GE Healthcare Life Sciences

Manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals is a large commitment to the public health and helps save the lives of millions of people. The complex nature of biopharmaceuticals makes manufacturing a challenge, in which a consistent, high-quality end product is dependent of the use of equally consistent, high-quality key manufacturing components.

Key manufacturing components are often single-sourced. As it many times is costly and time-consuming to replace components of a regulated manufacturing process, it is important to secure the supply of these components. Considering that a biopharmaceutical can have a lifetime of 30 years or more, reliable, long-term supply of key manufacturing components is essential.

Chromatography medium (resin) is an example of a key manufacturing component. Being one of the world’s leading suppliers of chromatography media, GE Healthcare Life Sciences has taken extensive preventive actions to help secure a continuous supply of media to our customers. We have implemented a security of supply program to help our customers maintain manufacturing of vital biopharmaceuticals, even under unforeseen circumstances.
