Machines & Medicine – New podcast from Syntegon 

Six episodes available on Spotify and YouTube 

Among the guest of the Syntegon podcast, Mathias Romacker, Kymanox Executive Advisor and PDA board member, discusses the challenges of parenteral drug manufacturing in episode 4.

The pharmaceutical industry faces regulations and challenges like no other. Drug manufacturers are subject to the highest quality and efficacy standards, all the while under increasing pressure to be flexible and develop fast time-to-market strategies for newly developed drugs. To break these complex topics down into an easily digestible format, Syntegon has launched a new podcast series ‘Machines & Medicine’. Every six to eight weeks, Laura Moody, director of Product Management Pharma North America, engages with experts from pharmaceutical manufacturing companies to discuss real issues in the industry. In the 30-minute episodes, the host and her guests provide revealing and exciting insights into the topics and trends that currently matter most to pharmaceutical manufacturers and beyond.

Informative, educational, and casual

Machines & Medicine was created as a global format for conversations related to pharmaceutical manufacturing from a machine builder point of view. The first six episodes focus on Annex 1, sustainability, nutraceuticals, parenteral drug manufacturing, robotics, and isolators. 

“While we started with a lens on equipment, the topics don’t stop there. Our informative yet casual atmosphere fosters discussions around everything related to pharma, with a little laughter along the way,” Laura Moody explains. Every episode includes in-depth information on a carefully selected topic, followed by a short trivia round at the end. “I have learned something new from each and every one of my guests this year. For me, that’s the biggest highlight: continuous learning.”

Many more topics to be discovered in 2024

The podcast is available on Spotify and YouTube. The series will be continued in 2024, including subjects such as facility design, continuous manufacturing, materials science, and commodity idiosyncrasies. Listeners will also get to know more industry leaders on the podcast, who will share a wider breadth of knowledge across their areas of expertise. “I’m looking forward to recording the next episodes and learning even more exciting details about everything related to pharmaceutical manufacturing,” Laura Moody concludes. 

In the pharma sector, Syntegon’s intelligent solutions enable the safe and high-quality production, processing, filling, inspection, and packaging of liquid and solid pharmaceuticals.
