Advantages of Lab-scale Production of Live Biotherapeutics
Live biotherapeutics are a class of medicines which is used for the prevention, treatment, or cure of a disease or condition. In the early development stages of live biotherapeutics, lab-scale production provides a more flexible platform for the research and application of live biotherapeutics. Compared with large-scale production, small-scale production has several advantages:
- Low Cost: Lab-scale production for live biotherapeutics refers to the production of a live biotherapeutic product with a small plant-size firm. It requires less capital, time, and manpower.
- Low Risk: Lab-scale production can adjust its production strategy in time to avoid material waste.
- Personal Attention to Customers: Lab-scale production pays more attention to customers' needs and can adjust production strategies according to customers' temporary decisions.
