How is a pharmaceutical giant using a food & snack manufacturing process to speed up the making of medicine?
The faster medicine can be made, the faster it can get to the patients who need it. Pfizer, a leader in pharmaceuticals, is taking a cue from food and snack makers.
Food and snack makers often use a process called “continuous manufacturing,” meaning materials are in constant motion and transformation, making the entire product journey faster and more seamless. Pfizer wants the pharmaceutical industry to catch on: They partnered with a food processing equipment manufacturer and a modular room designer to implement portable continuous miniature and modular (PCMM) manufacturing units.
