WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Air Particle Counters Resistant To Vapor Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP)
The use of Vaporous Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP) is commonplace in the pharmaceutical industry for disinfecting sterile manufacturing cores. Since VHP is a strong oxidizing agent it can be damaging to certain internal components in optically based air particle counting instruments. The MET ONE series of air particle counters have been specifically designed to utilize materials that will not be damaged by exposure to VHP. The testing outlined in this paper demonstrates the resistance of these components and stability of the instrument over an extended period of exposure time.
Important Considerations For Implementing A Single-Use Biomanufacturing Strategy
Recent trends in biomanufacturing technology and the biopharmaceutical market are supporting the increased adoption of single-use (SU) manufacturing systems. On the demand-side, the biopharma industry is focusing on niche and rare diseases with smaller patient populations, resulting in the need for smaller, more agile biomanufacturing capacity. By Jodi M. Zobrist and Nicole W. O'Brien, Ph. D., Gallus Biopharmaceuticals, LLC
Automated pH Adjustment In An Intelligent Single-Use Mixing Platform
Most pH adjustment process steps in single-use biomanufacturing require manual manipulation of the product and vessel, including off-line sampling, pH measurement, and the addition of acid and base.
Inside BioPharma: A Closer Look At Filter Housings
Although traditional stainless steel equipment has lost a great deal of market penetration to single-use alternatives over the past decade, there still is a need for quality filter cartridge systems for sterilizing and polishing filtration processes. By Leon VanWormer, MBA, Sartorius Stedim Biotech
Peristaltic Aseptic Filling Machines With A Single Use Production Philosophy
New drug development is today focused largely on biopharmaceuticals rather than chemicals, which means that the resultant drugs tend to be injectable liquids instead of solids. Furthermore, the new drugs are typically designed for specific populations, hence batch sizes are smaller. Alongside these two trends there are ongoing pressures to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and minimize risks — including cross-contamination between batches. Additionally there is a need for a reduction in the time involved in validation procedures; paperwork and man-hours, for example. Taken together, these factors point towards peristaltic pumps with single-use tubing or tubing sets as representing the future for bio-pharmaceutical fill/finish lines. By Peter Lambert
