Pharmaceutical Water Storageand Distribution Design

Pharmaceutical water systems provide a vital service to any pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. The key concept of pharmaceutical water storage and distribution design is to ensure that the system does not significantly deteriorate the quality of supplied process water. The system may incorporate process changes, such as temperature and pressure, to suit the end user's requirements, but the overriding factor is to deliver water within the correct validated specifications required for the application.

The major design considerations for pharmaceutical water storage and distribution systems are the quantity and quality of water required, along with the system's installation and operating costs. To maintain water quality, the storage and distribution system should be designed to inhibit microbial growth and to minimise any outside contamination of the circulating water. The fundamental points that help meet such requirements include:

The Flexible Factory Concept: A flexible bioprocessing platform to meet the changing needs of biomanufacturing

GE Healthcare Life Sciences

For the past several years, the biopharma industry has been buffeted by dynamic market conditions that are rapidly reshaping manufacturing requirements. These factors include: • The rise of small-market pharmaceuticals that do not require the production scale of the previous “blockbuster” drug model • Increased titers and process productivity that generate more bulk-product within a much smaller manufacturing footprint • The emergence of biosimilars and continued evolution of healthcare reform, which will increasingly pressure drug pricing and require greater cost discipline • Greater competition and shorter patent protection timelines, which will further ratchet up time-to-market pressures • Tighter capital markets that will create heightened scrutiny for all new investment projects
