This year’s Emerson Exchange will feature some interesting, cost-saving solutions for life sciences applications. Look for them:
Life Science Industry Solutions:
Faced with the aging population, healthcare reforms and the move to generics and disposables along with the global economic downturn, the Life Sciences industry today must meet huge challenges. Emerson Life Science Industry specialists understand these challenges and drive innovative global solutions that help position our customers for growth far into the future. At Emerson Exchange, customers can see:
- Process Industry Technology (PAT) demonstrations show how problems of science can be addressed with automation. The PAT booth provides a quick view of how an integrated Syncade software modules system can help bridge the science/automation gap. This demo will be lead by Ali Afnan, formerly a Senior Fellow in the FDA CDER Office of Pharmaceutical Science (OPS).
- At the Life Sciences Engineering Center, Emerson engineers will show technologies that have solved customer problems in areas such as API, Cell Culture, Fill finish, Packaging, and Oral Solid Dose.
- The use of Emerson solutions for skid-based applications has increased due to the flexible architectures and licensing structure of Emerson technologies. Skid-based solutions allow a consistent automated strategy to be used throughout the plant, and provide leveraging of intelligent field devices and predictive intelligence. Wireless technologies permit additional skids to be added anywhere in the plant – even hazardous and remote areas – quickly and easily. Emerson provides a variety of cross-industry skid-based solutions and has in-house and OEM partner capability for design, construction, installation, commissioning and lifecycle support.
With so much at stake, it is critical to utilize equipment that has been specifically designed to withstand the challenges inherent in pharmaceutical and biotechnological processing to maximize instrument life, and minimize maintenance while providing accurate and reliable process control.
On-line electrochemical measurements, such as pH, dissolved oxygen and conductivity, provide substantial improvements in the level of process control, quality, efficiency and profitability that can be achieved in biopharmaceutical processing.
As you can see, Emerson Exchange is expanding to meet the needs of all our customers. Be sure to check out the new application areas. We look forward to seeing you there September 27 – October 1, 2010 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. For more information: www.emersonexchange.org.
