PAS-X for biosimilar and personalized biotech production

In addition to its established role in classical biotech production, Körber’s PAS-X solutions are also the optimal choice for biosimilar and personalized biotech manufacturing.


Biosimilar manufacturing is complex and requires extensive analysis and comparative studies to meet the same quality, safety, and efficacy standards as biologics. Our solution can help optimize the development and production of biosimilars by developing complex models that consider factors influencing biosimilars, such as cell lines, production patterns, process parameters, quality attributes, etc. PAS-X Savvy simplifies and accelerates data analysis by extracting and reviewing critical process parameters (CPPs) and critical quality attributes (CQAs) to meet biosimilar specifications. Our PAS-X MES offers the classic benefits of a paperless system, including traceability, compliance, efficiency, etc., and can also improve data provisioning for biosimilar development and approval by storing and transferring data in a standardized and integrated format. We also provide a systematic approach to ensure analytical biosimilarity to maximize the chances of drug approval.
