Industry Insights

  1. Is Your Complex Formulation Process Set Up For Success?
    8/2/2016

    Any company pursuing a drug delivery system that involves a complex formulation must be prepared for the requirements around this type of drug development to achieve successful scale-up.

  2. Anticipating The Formulation Challenges Of Complex Molecules
    6/7/2016

    Due to the increasing complexity of today’s API molecules, formulation problems are arising with greater frequency, delaying development, and burdening developers with unanticipated and heavy costs.

  3. TCO Considerations For Biopharma Manufacturing Facilities
    7/10/2017

    whether you’re building a plant for a small molecule drug or a biologic, you need to be able to do so faster and in a more agile manner than ever before. 

  4. Digitally Transforming Laboratory Operations
    5/20/2016

    “Digital transformation” is a common buzzword across industries today, but is it more than just jargon?  Faced by shifting consumer demand, rapidly evolving technology and increasing competition, organizations — to a large extent from science-based industries — are realizing that business as usual (or only incremental change to traditional approaches) does not address today’s challenges in a sustainable, long-term way.

  5. How Do You Inspect Packaging Of Bottles, Cans And Cylinders?
    5/13/2016

    To ensure the package is error free, progressive companies now use automated proofreading solutions throughout the design and printing of the package and label.

  6. Keeping Up With Viral Safety Trends In Bioprocessing
    10/23/2017

    Understand the new technologies and methodologies that are emerging for both producing and testing biopharmaceuticals as the industry is entering a new era of viral safety assurance.

  7. Perfusion – Do’s And Don’ts To Cut Production Costs, Increase Efficiency
    8/25/2017

    Setting up a perfusion process is complex, and getting the best out of it requires an awareness of the do’s and don'ts of the approach.  Design of experiment (DoE) and quality by design (QbD) approaches help the development of a production process that is both cost-effective and high quality.

  8. Tackling The Challenge Of Scalability
    5/26/2016

    Commercial production of biologics requires development of a fermentation process that is time- and cost-efficient, and highly reliable. In an early stage of development, many process parameters are evaluated at small or bench scale to find the optimal conditions.

  9. Designing A Biomanufacturing Facility Incorporating Single-Use Technologies
    12/5/2016

    When building a new facility based on single-use technologies, or incorporating single-use into an existing facility, how do companies ensure they fully realize the benefits?

  10. 5 “No-Cost Strategies” For Your Laboratory Project
    4/7/2017

    The list is a guide to identifying practical strategies and making a project successful from inception to the operations and facility life-cycle by incorporating more science into less space, reducing utility usage, and using innovative concepts.
