DARPA’s Challenge: Manufacture A Biopharmaceutical In Less Than 24 Hours

In order to ensure American soldiers fighting in remote locations overseas can receive the biopharmaceuticals they need on time, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) created a program called Biologically-derived Medicines on Demand (Bio-MOD). The goal of Bio-MOD is to build a system that has the ability to create an on-demand biopharmaceutical in less than 24 hours. I spoke with one of the teams working on this effort about how they intend to accomplish this and what it could mean to the future of the industry.

    Immunoassays To Maximize Productivity In Bioprocess Development

    High productivity demands efficient bioanalytical procedures to measure, for example, product titer and process impurities, but commonly used methods, such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) or highperformance liquid chromatography, can create bottlenecks in critical workflows.

  • Safety Considerations For Gas Filtration In High-Temperature
    Safety Considerations For Gas Filtration In High-Temperature

    Gas filtration using sterilization-grade filters is a key part of the production, manufacturing and packaging process of biopharmaceuticals and other products. While it may seem a simple step, there are major safety considerations that have to be taken in to account to protect staff, equipment and facilities from hazard, particularly when working in high temperature and oxygen enrichment applications.

    Reduce Cost, Increase Quality, And Shorten Cycle Time In Upstream Manufacturing Scale Cell Culture

    Manufacturing biopharmaceutical products on an industrial scale has required scaling up a variety of techniques that were previously only practiced at bench scale. This includes highly technical and notoriously difficult processes such as cell culture; maintaining living cells in a tightly controlled sterile environment.
