Designing Scalable, Safe & Economical Processes

Technology Transfer is a critical cross-functional process for achieving timely and successful delivery of your drug substance. It involves meticulous planning, accurate documentation, eicient procedures and skillful handling by our own specialists. The team at Sai Life Sciences delivers best-in-class technical services for scale-up and manufacturing and plays a strategic role in designing scalable, safe, and economical processes.

Designing Scalable, Safe & Economical Processes

Role of the Technology Transfer team

  • Selection of fit for purpose plant, machinery, and
  • Developing in-depth understanding of customer needs
    and process benefits to develop campaign reports
  • Seamless technology and knowledge transfer from the
    bench to the plant across all geographies
  • Executing the scale-up process under the close and
    comprehensive monitoring of process engineers to
    ensure reproducibility and further refinement of
    subsequent procedures
  • Utilizing a range of software tools such as Dynochem,
    AspenOne, and MixIT to anticipate process performance under varying scales and operating conditions. Through process simulation, engineers can fine-tune essential parameters to achieve first time right scale-up and enhance process efficiency.
