Bioprocessing White Papers

  1. Managing Demand Uncertainty In Biologics Production
    8/9/2017

    How starting early, building options into your process, understanding the lead times, and continuing to evaluate your strategy can reduce uncertainty in your plans.

  2. Improving Compliance And Manufacturing Efficiency In Life Sciences
    8/7/2017

    Current market conditions such as regulations and mergers or acquisitions make improving compliance and manufacturing efficiency while driving to grow revenue and margins difficult. Read on to understand strategies, frameworks and recommendations to achieve these goals.

  3. Low Particulate Carboys Can Help Improve Biopharmaceutical Production And Vaccine Production
    8/1/2017

    USP <788> and equivalent regulations require that injectables are at or below particulate limits outlined in the regulation. Particulates can come from the drug ingredients, containers, tubing and equipment used in production of these products. Some products cannot be filtered prior to final fill, requiring a process which limits particulate-contributing factors wherever possible throughout manufacturing. Pre-cleaned, sterile, ready-to-use containers ease this burden.

  4. Leverage The Internet Of Things Within The Laboratory
    8/1/2017

    As science-based organizations look to leverage the internet of things (IoT) within the laboratory, careful consideration must be given to available technologies, data formats, and platforms. 

  5. Pharma Production Technology Transfers: Reaping Rewards, Reducing Risks
    7/24/2017

    Transferring production – and the technologies that undergird it – can be risky. The same product can behave differently in different equipment, resulting in low yields or even batch rejections.

  6. Best Practices In Formulation And Lyophilization Development
    7/19/2017

    The ultimate goal of formulation development is a stable product. In the case of a protein product, that can be defined as delivering the correct dose, in the native secondary and tertiary structure, without unintended chemical modifications, and free of extrinsic and intrinsic particles. In many cases, a lyophilized formulation can provide the highest probability of technical success. A well-designed product development plan can develop a phase 1 product quickly, while laying the foundation for commercial product success.

  7. Test Parameters For The Leak Test Of Single-Use Systems With The Palltronic® Flowstar LGR Instrument
    6/30/2017

    Leak testing of SUS or biocontainers, post-installation and prior to actual use, reduces the risk that a system or a biocontainer which may have been damaged during shipping, receiving, handling, storage, or installation could contribute to valuable product loss. Therefore, in cases involving high value product or complex multiple operations, leak testing may be recommended prior to use at the end-user site. This document serves to provide general guidance for experimentally establishing leak test maximum  flow for SUS tested at the end-user site. It is intended to assist users in the development of parameters and maximum flow for the leak test of single-use systems when using the Palltronic Flowstar LGR test instrument.

  8. Accelerate Flavivirus Vaccine Production With Modern Tools And Solutions
    6/11/2017

    This white paper gives an overview of modern tools and solutions, adding flexibility and speed to both upstream and downstream operations in flavivirus vaccine production.

  9. Managing Risk In Biomanufacturing
    6/6/2017

    Commercial, manufacturing, and supply aspects in the biopharmaceutical industry can all be managed in order to mitigate risk. This white paper focuses on how a structured and transparent risk management process can be an ideal way to align the needs of patients with drug manufacturers and their suppliers, regulators, investors, and employees. Read on to learn more about guarding commercial interests, building and managing manufacturing capacity, and preventing supply disruption, and how these things can impact managing risk in biomanufacturing.

  10. Evaluating Pharma And Biopharma Facility Design Options
    5/31/2017

    In the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry several factors have converged to change the landscape in regard to facilities.
