Women In Bio Profile: Lessons Learned From 10 Years Performing Tech Transfers By Ed Miseta, Chief Editor, Outsourced Pharma and Clinical Leader
Kelly Kral has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for more than 10 years. She started her career at Genzyme, working as a process engineer developing a fed batch process for the production of adenovirus in HEK293 suspension cells. Her responsibilities included media screening, cell growth characterization, and virus production in shake flasks, spinners, and bioreactors. She assisted in process transfer to a CMO and authored process documentation, skills she used extensively in her work as group leader for upstream process development at Percivia and in her current role as scientist I at bluebird bio.
Application Note: Automated Cell Dispensing And Image-Based Spheroid Formation Tracking By Brad Larson and Peter Banks, Applications Department, BioTek Instruments, Inc., and Nicky Slawny, 3D Biomatrix, Inc.
Scientists using cell culture for drug discovery, toxicology, stem cell biology, and basic research realize the critical importance of 3-dimensional (3D) models. Data from cells cultured in a nonphysiologic, monolayer format on plastic surfaces has long been suspected to differ from true in vivo physiology, and there is mounting evidence that this difference is slowing the pace of scientific discovery.
The Xcellerex XDUO Quad Mixing System is an intelligent, plug and play, single-use mixing system for the commercial and clinical production of biopharmaceuticals, vaccines, and other biologics. The system supports upstream and downstream applications for automated mixing of buffer, media, product, and intermediates, as well as other process fluids.
The CSafe SVS is the newest addition to the growing family of CSafe’s temperature management solutions. The SVS was designed to meet the growing need of pharmaceutical manufacturers to have a smaller shipping container with the same performance and reliability of the CSafe RKN.
