• ADC Advancements Allowing For Higher DAR

    A high drug-antibody-ratio (DAR) used to mean higher off-target toxicity for ADCs. Now, thanks to improvements in linker technology and antibody targeting, higher DARs can allow for improved efficacy.

How Linker Technology Is Driving ADC Development

If you’re still not excited about antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), “there’s an issue with you.” That’s the passionate, bullish sentiment (jokingly) held by Dr. Joe Daccache, project leader at DeciBio. Here, Daccache explains how innovations in linker technology are advancing the field of ADCs.

Tech-Heavy Drug Discovery Yields Deep Pipeline

Recursion Cofounder and CEO, Chris Gibson, Ph.D. is creating a map of human biology comparable to Google’s ongoing effort to map every street on the planet. He shared why that's so important, and how it's informing Recursion's rapid drug discovery efforts.

Engineering Antibodies In A Box?

Machines aren’t smart enough to engineer optimal, disease-specific antibodies without data that’s properly generated, captured, and structured. That’s why LabGenius Founder Dr. James Field says the key to success is neither human-derived data, nor machine-enabled design. It’s the organizational engineering feat of bringing the two together.

Why RNA Is Good For Business

Early last year, Nutcracker Therapeutics landed a $170 million Series C to further its work developing an RNA drug development platform. Learn how scientist-turned Chief Business Officer Geoff Nosrati is lifting the company above the cacophony of companies rallying around the therapeutic potential of RNA.


  • Designing Facility Monitoring Systems For Cleanrooms

    Let's examine the features and advantages of facility monitoring systems, system architecture considerations, and overall system considerations.

  • Release Testing Of AAV Gene Therapies For Clinical Trials

    Adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapies that are designed to deliver a therapeutic transgene to patients are complex products that can be challenging to manufacture. Because of their complexity, a variety of analytical methods are required to ensure that these viral vectors are of high quality and purity, will function as intended, and have batch-to-batch consistency.

  • How Can Digital Twins Get Us Closer To Pharma 4.0?

    Digital twins — virtual representations of physical and conceptual assets, processes, or systems — offer a seamless bridge between the present challenges and the vision of Pharma 4.0.

  • Your 6 Priority Areas For A Successful 2024

    As we approach the end of 2023, and pharma/biotech companies finesse their road maps for 2024, this article assesses the six priorities vying for attention.

  • A Brief Guide For Vaccine Companies Working Toward FDA Approval For the First Time

    This article outlines best practices for expediting the FDA approval process while maintaining safety and efficacy standards. Tips are related to vaccine R&D, understanding the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), post-approval surveillance and monitoring, and more.

  • 6 PEG Alternatives You Should Be Thinking About

    PEGylation is a common way to minimize off-target effects and general toxicity, but it also poses life-threatening risks because it prolongs the drug's time in the bloodstream. Scientists are exploring these alternatives to combat the risk.

  • Emerging Trends & Technologies In Anti-Counterfeit Pharmaceutical Packaging

    Counterfeit medicines are rising at an alarming rate, with data showing that nearly 6,500 pharmaceutical crime incidents were recorded in 2021, ranging from innovator drugs to generics, and from antimalarials to blood pressure medicine to vaccines. What packaging and labeling strategies are pharma/biotech companies using to tackle this?

  • Achieving Flexibility In RNA Drug Manufacturing With Microfluidics

    RNA manufacturers need flexible processes and technology. They need to manufacture high-quality RNA in small quantities and scale up. Modular, and more specifically, modular microfluidics equipment makes that easier. This discussion takes stock of the current state of modular equipment for RNA manufacturing.





This collection of articles, produced through a partnership between MilliporeSigma and Bioprocess Online, highlights the need for ongoing investment in resilient biomanufacturing capacity and supply chains to ensure the reliable delivery of health technologies like vaccines, even during crisis conditions.
