Economic Analysis on Continuous Biopharmaceutical Process
Economic analysis can provide preliminary cost assessment for industrial process at the design stage. In recent years, continuous biopharmaceutical process has become increasingly popular due to its advantages in flexibility, product quality, productivity, and profitability compared to traditional batch process. However, the continuous process is inherently more complex and the associated process design is yet far from mature. Therefore, our study applies economic analysis to the continuous biopharmaceutical process and aims to guide the selection between batch and continuous processes industrially.
