Our article in Pharma Horizon is now available (link). In this article we examine how continuous manufacturing technology enables the design of highly automated, small footprint, chemical manufacturing plants at relatively low cost when compared to traditional batch production. This capability will eventually allow for the design of distributed, point-of-use manufacturing. The article explores the implications of the adoption of continuous manufacturing technology and the new supply-chain logistics made possible. We see continuous manufacturing as an important tool to ensure and expand access to essential medicines worldwide.
