Our History


BioTechLogic was founded in December 2003 by former Searle/Pharmacia/Pfizer BioPharma colleagues Tracy TreDenick, Peter Dellva and Patrick Giljum.

The Biopharma group that these founders supported was responsible for management of a virtual supply chain and had to assure biopharmaceutical supplies, manage third party contract manufacturers, negotiate contracts, and provide technical and submission support to develop the manufacturing and regulatory documents that would support global drug submission and approval. When Pfizer closed the former Searle Chicago Site in 2003, these colleagues saw an opportunity to provide a valuable service. Many of BioTechLogic’s employees share this same history.

    • Parameter Classifications
    • Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA)
    • Design of Experiments (DOE)
    • Critical Process Parameter Evaluation
    • Parameter Justification Reports
    • Development Reports
  • Technology Implementation, Transfer and Scale-up
  • On-Site Third Party Contract Manufacturing Support
  • BioAnalytical Services
  • Process Validation
    • Process Performance Qualifications Protocols/Reports
    • Continued Process Verification Plans/Protocols
  • Project Management
    • Process Validation, Submission Preparation, PAI Readiness and Launch
  • Quality Assurance
    • Multi-Product Facility Audits, Pre/Post Viral Inactivation Audits, etc.
  • Regulatory Submissions
    • Briefing Packages, CTD Module 2.3 (Summaries) and 3 (Quality), and Briefing Packages
  • PAI Inspection Readiness (FDA Pre-Approval Inspection Readiness)

As workloads exceed resource capacity due to accelerated commercialization timelines and/or when objective third party input is required to develop strategies or solve problems, BioTechLogic will provide the technical skills and personnel to fill these needs.
