WellSpring Publishes Their Second eBook: Technology Transfer Success With A CMO Partner

Posted by Michelle Puglielli

Technology transfer is a critical undertaking that can be methodical and smooth. Or, tech transfer can be a nightmare resulting in extensive delays and unexpected costs.

Put in more precise terms, technology transfer can and arguably should be a mature and structured discipline that is repeatable, well managed and predictable.  For organizations that do not place importance on the strategic management of tech transfer, the process is most often volatile, unpredictable and fraught with problems.

How Our eBook Can Help

Assuring-Pharmaceutical-Technology-Transfer-Success-eBook Any successful tech transfer boils down to the following six principles:

  1. Robust information exchange
  2. Careful front-end planning and project management
  3. Making sure analytical assays are transferred ahead of the process
  4. Performing verification at the receiving site
  5. Always perform pre-GMP engineering runs
  6. GMP runs are the end game

In addition to these six basic elements of success, there are four areas we believe need to be challenged:

  • Packaging line trials - if a product is a new SKU to the site, it is crucial to perform line trials, filling the product into the proposed bottle or cap
  • Stability indicating methods should already be in place, enabling onsite transfer against the protocol signed off by the client
  • Cleaning validation needs to be assessed; specifications and batch records need to be written
  • A Health and Safety Review needs to be conducted to ensure the ability to safely handle the product

Within the eBook we explored topics ranging from defining technology transfer within the context of working with a CMO partner, discussion of cost variables, management of analytical method transfer, as well as an overarching exploration of best technology transfer practices.
