Merck Champions Single-Use By Addressing Emotion Vs. Science
Lowering the cost of medication is the key to the US gaining a stronghold on the global pharmaceutical market. As anyone knows, in order to lower the cost of medication, the cost of manufacturing will need to be lowered as well. According to Chris Smalley, Ph.D., director of validation compliance at Merck, single-use technology (SUT) could be the hero.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Effect Of Sterilization On Mechanical Properties Of Silicone Rubbers
Silicone rubber is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry where sterilizability is an essential requirement for all fluid transfer equipment. Pharmaceutical products must be sterilized frequently and repeatedly by high level energy and/or chemical vapor in order to eliminate bacterial surface contamination.
Streamlining The Biological Factory: Making A Better CHO Cell For Biopharma Production
SAFC’s CHOZN® Platform has been developed as a ‘plug and play’ manufacturing system for the creation of biopharmaceutical producing cell lines.
Save Up To 8 Hours In Cell Line Development With ZFN Technology
Zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) have proven to be a powerful tool for modifying genes. In comparison to traditional techniques, such as adding chemical or radiation based mutagens that cause various random mutations, ZFNs can create very accurate, targeted changes to the genome in a much more rapid fashion.
Is Your Single-Use System Supplier Disposable?
During the last six years, single-use systems and devices have emerged as key agents in the biopharmaceutical landscape. By John Briggs, ASQ, CQA, Quality Assurance Manager - ASI
Meeting BioPharma Needs For Lower Operating Cost And Faster Time To Market
Broad adoption awaits fully scalable GMP systems, improved and less costly disposables, better analytics, greater process automation and low-shear mixing.
The Next Bioprocessing Revolution: Functional Additives
Now that many bioproduction technologies and processes are reaching maturity, manufacturers are seeking out the next level of refinements. As an extension of successful fed-batch strategies (such as the use of matched media and feeds), the next stage in bioprocess refinement involves the development of highly concentrated functional additives that can be added to each bioreactor run in the smallest amount necessary to give good titer increases.
