Article: Continuous Processing In Bioproduction? By William G. Whitford, Thermo Fisher Scientific
In 1865, Jules Verne popularized the idea of a moon landing in From the Earth to the Moon. However, it wasn't until more than one hundred years later that technology caught up sufficiently to accomplish the feat, with Apollo 11. In the same way, it may be that the long-discussed idea of continuous processing (CP) in bioproduction may finally be approaching realization. The power of continuous processing (or production) has been recognized since its application to the oil and chemical manufacturing industries in the late 19th century. Its popularity stems from the value it provides in efficiency, economy, and quality.
The New USP Chapter 41 — Are You Compliant? By Jennifer Camarda, Sales Specialist, Premium Balances & Software, Sartorius Corporation
As of December 1, 2013, significant changes to the USP Chapter 41, a mandatory chapter, became effective and now apply to all materials that must be accurately weighed. USP Chapter 41 has also been renamed, from Weights and Balances to Balances, and it does not reference the minimum sample weight anymore, but rather it defines repeatability and accuracy, which specifies the operating range of a balance. The operating range is limited to the maximum capacity of the balance and begins at the point at which the balance’s repeatability is less than or equal to 0.10 percent. The weighing must also be performed using a balance that is calibrated over its operating range.

White Paper: Security Of Supply For Chromatography Media By GE Healthcare Life Sciences
The complex nature of biopharmaceuticals makes manufacturing a challenge, in which a consistent, high-quality end product is dependent of the use of equally consistent, high-quality key manufacturing components.
The Filtrete Commercial HVAC Filter MERV A8 is a minipleat filter that is an excellent choice as either a primary filter or as a secondary filter. It also helps our customers earn one point in the LEED certification process for new buildings and renovations during the construction phase, by using the filter at each return air grille and replacing the filter immediately prior to occupancy.
Every freeze-drying formulation has a critical temperature, below which it should be cooled for complete solidification and maintained below during primary drying in order to prevent processing defects. The Lyostat freeze-drying microscope system allows observation of the sample structure during drying and heating so that the exact point of collapse can be determined.
New Brunswick Roller Drums are precision instruments for growing mini preps, as well as tissue and bacterial cultures, by the roller tube method. Removable accessory drums accommodate 16 mm, 18 mm, or 25 mm test tubes, as well as 50 ml centrifuge tubes.
As the biologics market continues to grow, with additional launches, expanding indications, and approvals of biosimilars, the delivery platform will play a more critical role in product differentiation.
