How Reliable Is The Pharma Equipment You Buy?
When it comes to equipment manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry, it is imperative that a product functions exactly as it was intended. Any misstep caused by faulty equipment could have catastrophic results for the company that produces a drug, but more importantly, for the patient who uses it. The serious consequences that can result from a lack of accurate equipment design and the associated manufacturing processes are why Donald Dobert, president and COO of ATL Pharmaceutical/Medical, created his company’s New Product Development (NPD) Planning Process.

Continuous Biomanufacturing: 10 Reasons Sponsors Hesitate
By William Whitford, Sr. Manager, HyClone Cell Culture, GE Healthcare
The industry is abuzz with talk about continuous biomanufacturing (CB), and it virtues have been well described. Here we will look at some of the barriers or concerns perceived to limit its value to the industry. Justified or not, quite a few concerns have been expressed regarding the implementation of this new, rather disruptive technology.
Precise Cold-Chain Logistics Supports Global Study Of Heart Disease
The challenge involved the precise cold storage temperatures (between 2-8°C) required to assure the integrity of the strips during the transfer and storage of the product to various sites around the globe.
Process For Scale-Up Of Adherent Vero Cells From Static Cell Factories To Influenza Production
In cell culture-based vaccine production, scale-up of adherent cells is challenging. This study shows a process for scaling up adherent Vero cells from static cell factories to influenza production at 50 L scale using WAVE Bioreactor™ systems and ReadyToProcess single-use equipment.
A Comparison Of Performance Using Three Bioreactor Systems
Eppendorf has introduced a new benchtop cell culture bioreactor that combines the benefits of single-use technology with the trusted performance and true scalability of a stirred-tank design. CelliGen™ BLU eliminates the need for autoclaving and cleaning, reduces validation requirements, provides rapid turn-around between runs, minimizes startup costs, and significantly reduces the risk of contamination because the culture vessel is only used once and then discarded.
Maintain The Benefits Of Single-Use Technology With Cell Culture Processing
Historically, stirred-tank bioreactors have been the standard for culturing all types of submerged cultures including suspension and anchorage-dependent mammalian, insect, yeast, plant and microbial cultures. By Nick Kohlstrom, Joseph Capone, and Ma Sha, Eppendorf Inc.
