  4. How To Avoid 5 LIMS Nightmares
    5/18/2016

    Analysts have estimated the failure rate of commercial laboratory information management systems (LIMS) to be as high as 60 percent with many of them failing to deliver original customer requirements after lengthy and expensive deployments.

  5. Tips On Downstream Purification Processes
    1/21/2017

    Once protein purification work surpasses a certain scale in terms of volume, a measured and step-wise development of the bioseparation process is vital.

  6. 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. At the larger end of the scale, advances in upstream processing such as improved fermentation capacities have led to increased amounts of crude sample available for input. Despite this meaning higher potential yields of target proteins, it also poses an enormous challenge for timely and cost effective sample processing further downstream. This challenge is made even more difficult as scale increases due to higher amounts of impurities — a result of prolonged fermentation times and higher cell densities in large-scale cell cultures.
