White Paper: An Inexact Science — Biosafety Risk Assessment
By Brian Garrett, LEED Green Associate And Product Specialist, Labconco Corporation
One of a biosafety officer's or laboratory manager's most vital functions is that of performing risk assessments. This multistep process becomes the backbone of a microbiology laboratory's biosafety plan, operating procedures, and, if done early, facility design.


Application Note: Removal Of Host Cell Proteins During Monoclonal Antibody Purification
By 3M Purification
Protein A chromatography is a widely used and highly successful method of purifying recombinant monoclonal antibodies. However, since Protein A has high affinity for antibodies, harsh conditions such as low pH are often required to elute monoclonal antibodies from Protein A affinity columns.


White Paper: Process Review — Vero Cell-Based Vaccine Production
By K. John Morrow, Jr., Ph.D.; and Ma Sha, Ph.D.
Viral diseases, including rabies and influenza, are worldwide challenges to the international biomedical community. WHO notes that in 1998 more than 32,000 deaths due to rabies were reported, while influenza has been responsible for millions of deaths worldwide over the course of the past century.
