Advances In Science Could Give Way To Limited NIH Funding

Funding allocated to the National Institute of Health (NIH) has declined considerably over the last decade, particularly the last five years, despite the fact that the cost of conducting biomedical research has gone up. Without budget predictability, the NIH is now forced to be very conservative with grants. This is where we could see a significant impact to both the pharmaceutical industry and patients.

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