3D Bioprinting Could Speed Up Drug Development By Cindy Dubin, Contributing Editor
Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a 20-year-old technology whose time finally seems to have arrived. Interest in the equipment rose sharply last year; in 2012 the market for 3D products reached $777 million; and it could reach $8.4 billion by 2025 as medical uses for the printers are being developed, according to Lux Research.
Q&A: What Modern Materials Are Motivating Microcarriers In Manufacturing? By William Whitford, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Anchorage-dependent cell cultivation formats include many 2D planar approaches, such as roller bottles and multiple or stacked-surface-based systems of many types (including taunt gas-permeable films and so-called "hyper" technology). Some of these systems even automate many operations and control such traditional culture parameters as dO2, dCO2, and pH.
White Paper: Strategies For Gamma Sterilization Of Pharmaceuticals By By Ruth Garcia, Betty Howard, Rose LaRue, Glenn Parton, and John Walker, Steris Isomedix Services, STERIS Corporation
A crucial step in pharmaceutical production is sterilization. There are many sterilization methods to choose from such as steam, sterile filtration, ethylene oxide gas (EtO), electron beam (E-beam), and gamma radiation. Each technique has aspects that make it suitable or unsuitable for the sterilization of a particular product.

The LS 13 320 Series is the most versatile and sophisticated laser diffraction particle size analyzer available today. Using the Fraunhofer and Mie theories of light scattering, the LS 13 320 Series offers the highest resolution and reproducibility, and unsurpassed accuracy.
The XRS 20 Bioreactor System is a new, single-use bioreactor system with unique agitation and control properties designed for the cultivation of mammalian cells in suspension culture under controlled conditions. It is suitable for applications ranging from general life sciences research to seed train operations and full GMP production at the 2 to 20 liter scale.
Whether you prefer the convenience of a single-use bioreactor, the flexibility of an autoclavable system, or the robustness of a sterilizable-in-place (SIP), production-scale reactor, we have a system that is right for you.
