Event Preview Ready for Business?

ICSE, part of the CPhI Worldwide portfolio of leading pharmaceutical events, is returning once again to offer pharma executives an opportunity to source new suppliers, network and learn.

This year, ICSE and co-located events are being held at Feria de Madrid, Spain, from 9th-11th October 2012. In addition to ICSE and CPhI, which focus on pharma contract services and ingredients, there is P-MEC Europe for pharma technology, equipment and machinery and InnoPack for pharma packaging. Together, the shows cover every stage of the pharma value chain, with exhibitors in every area from CMO to CRO, (pre-) clinical trials through to pharma ingredients, technology and packaging.

The event has a genuinely global focus, attracting visitors and exhibitors from all over the world. Last year’s event, held in Frankfurt, Germany, attracted over 30,000 attendees and more than 2,200 exhibitors from over 140 countries.

All four shows are subdivided into zones, each dedicated to a different area of expertise within the sector and designed to showcase its distinct qualities. Zoning has been warmly received by attendees because it makes the event easier to navigate and enables quick movement between areas.

ICSE and co-located events are renowned within the pharma industry for the audience they attract, even in comparison to other pharma-specifi c events.

Past exhibitors have reported that having a stand at the event puts them in front of senior commercial decision-makers, allowing them to forge highly productive, longlasting business relationships face-to-face.

For the last few years, ICSE, CPhI and co-located events have hosted the Innovation Awards, which recognise outstanding innovation among the event’s exhibitors. This year, the scope of the awards has been broadened, and they’ve been renamed accordingly, becoming the CPhI Pharma Awards. The CPhI Pharma Awards feature three categories: Best Innovation, Best Sustainable Packaging and Best Sustainable Stand Design. Best Innovation recognises outstanding achievement in pharmaceutical R&D, highlighting pioneers in new, commercially scalable technologies.

Entry to the CPhI Pharma Awards is open to exhibitors at CPhI Worldwide, ICSE, P-MEC Europe and InnoPack. The deadline for Best Innovation and Best Sustainable Packaging is 10th August 2012, with Sustainable Stand Design remaining open until 31st August. The shortlist will be announced on 7th September, with presentations being held by shortlisted exhibitors at the CPhI Speakers Corner on 9th October. Details of how to enter can be found at

Other new and returning features include: CPhI Global Meetings, a newly launched ‘Match and Meet’ service for exhibitors and visitors; the Pre-Connect conference on 8th October; Lunchtime Education sessions during the show days; and the popular Speakers Corners in the ICSE – proudly sponsored by Samedan Pharmaceutical Publishers Limited – CPhI and InnoPack areas.

A custom-built mobile app is in development that will offer quick and easy access to key information about the event. More details will be published on the ICSE website ( and via the various social media channels in due course.

Delivering Fit For Purpose Biomanufacturing CHO Cell Lines

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

The challenge during mammalian cell line development is to identify and isolate stable, high expressing cell lines producing product with the appropriate critical product quality attributes rapidly, reproducibly and with relative ease. Obtaining a host cell line that inherently exhibits desirable biomanufacturing attributes can therefore have a significantly positive effect on the identification of recombinant cell lines with desired traits during cell line development screens. In this study, we demonstrate that it is possible to exploit intrinsic heterogeneity within host cell populations and identify host cell lines which are more “fit for purpose”.
