What Is The Solution To Drug Shortages?
As of July 2013, drug shortages seem to be getting worse and the drug shortage is not the result of numerous manufacturing issues but of something far more sinister.

5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Purchasing A Containment System
If you are considering purchasing one, here are five questions to answer that will help you prepare before contacting or working with a containment system vendor.
Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
Past experiences have shown that too often product quality is based on sole reliance of vendor certifications, statements and promises. To diminish such reliance new technologies started to be implemented, like process analytical technologies (PAT), process controls, automation etc. often once again overexerted as the solution to all problems. Activities that supposedly result in higher product quality due to better process controls. Maik W. Jornitz, Chief Operating Officer, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
Handheld Particle Counter Selection Guide
Just like mobile phones Handheld Particle Counters were originally quite large and heavy instruments that were not really very convenient to use, and due to the short battery life would run out at the most inconvenient moment! However, things have changed and happily we now have a great choice of many lightweight instruments with a wide range of features. By Dr. Hans-Walter Motzkus and Joe Gecsey
What Is A Particle Counter?
A particle counter is an electronic instrument that detects and counts airborne or liquid particles. Particles are detected using laser based optical systems that shine a powerful light through a detection chamber. By Dr. Hans-Walter Motzkus and Joe Gecsey
Creating The Next Generation Of Isolation
Containment technology has emerged as one of the major trends in the processing and manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Part of the reason for this is continuous quality improvement, which relies on new and improved containment technologies to enhance production. By Bosch Packaging Technology
Airborne Particle Monitoring: Impact Of ISO 21501-4 Calibration
Dependable, consistent and repeatable results in monitoring airborne particles in cleanrooms and clean zones depends both on the sampling technique of the analyst and on the performance of the particle counting instrument. The control of the sampling technique often is the subject of a unique SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) while the performance of the instrument is typically reviewed and verified through an annual or semi-annual calibration process.
