  9. Important Considerations For Lab Scale Protein Purification
    1/20/2017

    Protein purification at the lab scale bridges the gap between small-scale exploratory protein purification and high-throughput operations, such as industrial- scale manufacturing. 

  10. The Future Is “Cloudy” For Data Integrity In Life Sciences
    11/29/2016

    Managing the integrity of manufacturing data is becoming ever more challenging, particularly as more and more critical manufacturing functions are outsourced, thus limiting the amount of oversight a pharmaceutical company can provide. Life science companies need to demonstrate control over their data—whether internally or externally generated. FDA officials indicate that “data that are not valid and trustworthy is a sign that an entire operation or facility is out of control and cannot assure the quality of its medicines”. Without accurate data, companies are less equipped to ensure the safety, effectiveness and quality of their products.
