From The Editor: Riding An Acoustic Wave Into The Future Of Single Use By Trisha Gladd, Editor, Pharmaceutical Online and Bioresearch Online
If you've ever walked out into an ocean, you've felt the impact of waves propagating on the surface of the water. Hit from the back and you fall forward; hit from the front and you'll find yourself with a face full of water. However, in very choppy waters, you could potentially get hit from the front by waves coming from the sea, while simultaneously being hit from the back by waves bouncing off of the shore line. If these waves are timed correctly, the equal and opposite forces could trap you in a stable position; this is referred to as a standing wave. FloDesign Sonic uses a specially designed, 3D version of a standing wave to act as an invisible barrier (or filter) to catch cells while the remaining liquid and materials pass through. The cells group inside the standing wave and precipitate out of the fluid flow, where FloDesign Sonic uses specially designed fluidics to continuously draw off the concentrated cells.
White Paper: The Urgent Need For Qualified Transportation Providers By World Courier
Given the high cost of conducting global clinical trials, and the even higher cost of failure, regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical companies alike now demand that every party involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain — transportation and logistics providers included — conform to GxP guidelines.
The LifeASSURE PNA Series filter membrane and cartridge design innovations result in a highly durable filter cartridge, capable of secure operation through numerous cycles of steam sterilization and chemical-based cleaning and sanitation protocols.
When shipping pharmaceutical and other medical products, time is critical. Many items are sensitive to environmental changes — and it’s vital that valuable cargo is moved on time and that the shipper can stay aware of temperature, location, and other critical information along the supply chain. Pharmaceutical Online's Lori Clapper spoke with Wally Deveraux, director of cargo sales and marketing for Southwest Airlines, about the importance of asset tracking in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as their new solution, Cargo Companion.
