4 Fundamentals To Manage Cell-Based Potency Assays
By Dr. Weihong Wang, manager, Molecular and Cell Biology, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories
Characterization of a biological product — which includes the determination of physicochemical properties, biological activity, immunochemical properties, purity and impurities — is necessary to establish the safety and efficacy profile of a given product (ICH Q6B).


Spore Control In Pharmaceutical And Biotech Manufacturing Environments
By Elaine Kopis Sartain, Steris
Drug manufacturing facilities are required to establish facility and process controls to prevent microbiological contamination (21 CFR 211.113). Bacterial endospores and fungal spores present significant contamination challenges in drug production areas due to their prevalence in the environment and inherent resistance to chemical inactivation.
