UiO:Life Science and the SPARK Norway partners organize monthly open meetings.

On November 6th, Bjørn Pedersen, Managing Director of Diatec Monoclonals, was together with Catapult Life Science, invited to speak on the topic “Early phase production”.

Key talking points were: Procedures that work in the lab don’t always scale-up seamlessly into production in the life science industry. Process development while staying compliant will be required. What should be considered when you work in lab-scale to make the transition to production smoother? What are the common pitfalls, and what are the dos and don’ts?

Bjørn emphasized the importance of Quality Management.
