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.


Application Note: Paperless Environmental Monitoring For Aseptic Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
By Bob Latimer, Air Products Manager, Beckman Coulter Life Science
Aseptically produced, parenterally administered biopharmaceutical products must be free of unwanted bacterial or viral contaminants.


Best Practices For Process-Scale Column Packing Of CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite Media
By Bio-Rad Laboratories
CHT ceramic hydroxyapatite media require specific considerations during process-scale chromatography packing due to high specific gravity, rapid settling rate, and sensitivity to mechanical shear.


Posters: Role Of Interconnectivity In Enabling Improved Bioprocess Quality
By C.M. Huether, L. West, Dr. K. Rix, M.M. St. Amand, and B.A. Ogunnaike, DASGIP AG
An increasingly common discussion ongoing among bioprocess scientists and engineers alike is the idea that quality cannot be tested into a product but must instead be deployed throughout a process.
