  13. 13. 13 1. New seedbanks technologies are available in the field of biotechnology, especially focused on genetic engineering and monoclonal antibody technology 2. An increasing number of companies are currently offering custom antibody services for biosimilars development 1. Flexible manufacturing/ single use systems can be fine tuned for production of biosimilars 2. Smaller bioreactors will produce similar quantities to today’s “six pack” facilities 3. Consider CMOs to outsource entire manufacturing process. Alternatively, technology licensing from companies for in-house manufacturing setup 1. Inhouse development of cell lines can be opted for since these are key to development of biosimilars 2. Technologies offering higher yield (>20g/L) and speed are available for evaluation. To reduce long-term manufacturing costs, these options can be explored 3. Choosing the right kind of license with existing biotech companies Conclusion Seed banks Cell line development Manufacturing
