Scale-up? Scale-up manufacturing means using a larger bioreactor to produce the material needed for late stage clinical trials or market demand compared to the size of bioreactor used for early stage clinical production.
Just so, how does pharma determine batch size?
It should be sufficient enough to allow process capability to be established. For example, a commercial batch size for solid oral dosage forms should be at least 100,000 units unless justification is provided. The equipment capacity and maximum quantity allowed determines the maximum batch size.
Likewise, why do you need 3 batches for validation?
In process validation, initial three batches are taken for validation. The number of batches to be taken under validation depends upon the risk involved in the process of manufacturing. The less knowledge about the process requires the more statistical data to confirm the consistent performance.
What is a validation batch?
Validation batches are commercial scale batches that are manufactured consecutively in order to validate a process according to a validation protocol that was developed and authorized.
