Vaccine development and manufacture is one of the most challenging tasks within biopharmaceuticals today.
ISPE announced today that its Quality Metrics Pilot Program has achieved a major milestone with confirmation of 12 companies and 32 sites participating in the Program, even as recruitment continues.
Scientists from Temple University reported that they have designed a new approach to remove HIV from human cells growing in culture through genome editing.
TAP Biosystems (now part of the Sartorius Stedim Biotech Group), a leading supplier of innovative cell culture and fermentation systems for life science applications, recently announced the development of a stainless steel version of the fill-it system, designed for safely dispensing biohazardous materials such as vaccine stocks.
Incorporating wireless technology into medical devices is about more than just keeping up with the hottest technology trends; the benefits are real and significant, especially with regard to monitoring and encouraging dose compliance in the pharmaceutical and medical realm. Prior to embarking on the development of a wireless-enabled drug-delivery device, however, it is crucial to know what, specifically, the benefits are, and exactly what kinds of challenges and design considerations must be taken into account.
Cells grown in standard suspension or monolayer culture lose many features that are characteristic of cells in tissues and limit their use to study certain aspects of cell biology.
In the dynamic contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) industry, client-focused businesses succeed in retaining and growing our client base by delivering on project objectives and satisfying a client’s expectations.
Biorefineries have reignited interest in anaerobic fermentations with biobutanol production being the principle driver. Already during the First World War Biobutanol and acetone were produced in Clostridium acetobutylicum.
The Multifors Cell can be used to easily optimise development processes by parallel cultivation of animal cell cultures. Cultivation of the CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) cell line in the Multifors Cell bioreactor (INFORS HT, CH-Bottmingen) is described in the following as an example of batch cultivation of parallel samples.
