Introducing INNOPHEX for 2019
In collaboration with IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC (IPS) (a top provider of Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management, and Validation (EPCMV) services), INNOPHEX presented exhibits, a technical conference, and valuable networking opportunities dedicated to cell processing, gene therapy, and Pharma 4.0 technologies. Some technology highlights included robotics, 3D printing, and augmented/virtual reality.
With the strength of the North American gene therapy market and the emergence of Pharm 4.0, INNOPHEX offers access to knowledge and solutions to reduce operational costs, increase flexibility and improve processes and productivity in new and innovative ways. We believe adding INNOPHEX to the show floor further strengthens the value proposition of INTERPHEX.
