A Continuous process is a process where raw materials are continuously fed into a system at the same time as finished product is continuously removed at the end of the process train. The raw materials are processed in very small quantities, compared to batch processes, and in a controlled manner, which allows the operator to have consistent control over the critical process parameters and therefore the critical product quality attributes.
At GEA, we believe that continuous processing improves the quality of pharmaceutical end products: by focusing on quality during the whole product lifecycle, not just “tested in” quality; and by understanding the capability of your processes, managing sources of variability and decreasing any associated risks.
