Event Agenda

10:30 - 10:45 Arrival and Networking

10:45 - 11:30 State of Animal Health Industry in the Corridor

Karthik Ramachandran, Ph.D., VP & Co-Founder, Likarda, LLC

The multibillion dollar animal health industry continues to thrive as companion animals become a large part of the family dynamic. Furthermore, as global demand for protein-based food rises with increasing populations, animal health plays an increasingly important role in protecting our global food supplies. Kansas City is at the heart of the animal health industry and companies located in the region shape this industry. We will discuss an overview of the industry including trends, opportunities, and new innovations as the industry changes to meet demands.

11:30 - 12:00 Pre-engineered Modular Cleanrooms for High Containment Labs

Komal Hatti, NCARB, LEED AP, Senior Process Architect, IPS

High containment labs are complex research facilities with BSL-3 and higher classification. The presentation will discuss their engineering and construction challenges. The presentation will make a case for pre-engineered, turnkey and modular solution with pharmaceutical underpinnings as the safer, smarter and more sustainable approach for these complex facilities. It will demonstrate a product platform using a flex ABSL-3 module, in which components are added or subtracted to achieve variation in complexity for BSL-3, BSL-4 and ABSL-4 labs, while accommodating varying lab sizes.

12:00 - 1:00 Lunch Break

1:00 - 2:00 Production of USP WFI with Vapor Compression Stills

Darren Haney, Midwest Region Manager, MECO

The training will focus on understanding the criteria involving the selection of Vapor Compression Stills to produce USP WFI vs. other methods. The session will also review VC WFI feed water system design, and important considerations involving unit installation. It will conclude with a summary of operating characteristics and maintenance.

2:00 - 3:00 SP Scientific Equipment Overview

John Erdner, SP Scientific

This training will provide an understanding of Lyophilizer applications in animal health and review system design considerations for specifying your system. It will include a review of the Lyophilizer system cycles, loading and unloading options, stoppering, mechanical systems, and CIP/SIP. This session will give an overview of how redundancies provide more uptime and streamline maintenance activities.

3:00 - 3:15 Break

3:15 - 4:15 CIP Technologies for the Bio-Pharmaceutical Industry

Chris McNulty, Director of Business Development, Bio-Pharmaceutical, Sani-Matic Inc.
