How To Prepare A Facility For The Biopharmaceutical Revolution
By Trisha Gladd, Editor, Pharmaceutical Online and Bioresearch Online
Drug discovery is an inherently inefficient process. It takes thousands of failed compounds before one can get approved as safe and efficacious, and this effort does not come at a low cost. Because of this, the industry is constantly looking for ways to bring safe, compliant, and profitable drugs to market faster and cheaper. Patheon facility in Brisbane, Australia, exemplifies the facility needed to survive the future of pharma. But how did they do it?
Featured Focus: Logistics
How Active Packaging Systems Can Provide More Than Temperature Control
By Trisha Gladd, Editor, Pharmaceutical Online and Bioresearch Online
With the cost of cold chain logistics expected to rise from 6.7 billion in 2012 to 10.7 billion in 2017, it is even more important for pharmaceutical manufacturers producing temperature-sensitive drugs to select the most effective packaging solution to ship their product.

WHITE PAPER: QC Testing: Quality Control Methods That Make A Difference
By Robert McGregor, Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc.
How do you bring consistency to QC testing? Pharmaceutical products that meet manufacturability criteria and provide high-level consumer satisfaction undergo a battery of tests before being distributed to the consumer. Using affordable instrumentation to perform QC tests, which certify that tablets, capsules, elixirs, ointments, etc. have the right physical properties, is essential for today's successful businesses.

WHITE PAPER: Container Closure Integrity Testing Method Development And Validation For Prefilled Syringes
By Lei Li, Eli Lilly and Company
Utilization of prefilled syringes as a preferred container closure system for biologics has been increasing. As a primary container closure system, prefilled syringes must provide an integral barrier that protects drug product stability and sterility throughout its entire shelf life. Drug manufacturers are required to check and demonstrate the system is capable of maintaining its microbial barrier integrity. In 2008, the FDA further promoted container and closure system integrity (CCI) testing as a component of the stability protocol for sterile products.
