How RFID Is Changing The Pharma Cold Chain
By Lee Marts
Life sciences products have grown more complex, and this complexity often increases product value — and sometimes — temperature sensitivity. Either outcome places a greater burden on cold chain professionals to reduce risk.


Optimizing Clinical Trial Enrollment: Same Day Turnaround Of Blood Chemistry For Eligibility
By Paul S. Savuto, MS, MBA Blinded Diagnostics
Potential clinical trial participants and sponsors typically wait two to three days for lab results to determine eligibility. For the would-be participant, every day that elapses could contribute to the loss of interest and increase the risk of losing a potential study subject for many reasons.

Spotlight On Supply Chain

Tracking Sterilized Products Using RFID Tags And Expanded Memory Capacity
This technical paper introduces ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) RFID technology to support pending track and trace and serialization requirements. FRAM's tolerance for radiation proves effective in RFID situations employing X-rays, ultraviolet light, or gamma rays.


Biomanufacturing Supply Chains
This white paper examines the major issues with biopharmaceutical supply chains and how to balance inventory and risk optimally in the network.


Security In The Supply Chain
When analyzing a transportation company regarding its capabilities to keep cargo safe from theft, there are a variety of questions that a decision-maker should ask in an effort to effectively measure the security skills of the carrier.


The Difference Between Logistics Management And Logistics Control
Life science products have a distinct logistical profile; the nuances between a fine chemical and a medical compound or medical devices and computer hardware have significant regulatory differences. When determining the logistics plan for a product it is critical to remember that it is not just a box.

Single-Use Tangential Flow Filtration Systems For Downstream Processing
June 26, 2012 | 10:00 a.m. EST

Tangential flow filtration (TFF) for protein purification and/or concentration must meet specified flow and pressure requirements to achieve scalable performance and high product recovery. A single-use TFF (SUTFF) system must be cost effective and have a simple design format that can be easily adopted in a single-use manufacturing environment without compromising performance.
