Increase In HPAPI Manufacturing Highlights Need For Containment And Isolation Systems
An estimated 25 percent of globally manufactured drugs contain highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs). HPAPI drugs, which include small-molecule and biologic compounds as well as antibodydrug conjugates (ADCs), are often used in the treatment of cancer. The fastest growing segment of the HPAPI market are ADCs, a new class of therapeutic agents that deliver cytotoxic drugs selectively to antigen-expressing tumor cells. Non-oncology HPAPI compounds include hormones, narcotics, and retinoids.

Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
Maik W. Jornitz, President, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
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
Reducing Laboratory Fume Hood Energy Consumption
There is an ever-increasing demand for laboratories to have a reduced impact on the environment, as well as a lower cost to operate. With this continuing push for reduced energy consumption in laboratories, lab planners, architects, engineers, and lab managers are leaving no stone unturned. By Luke Savage, LEED Green Associate
Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Fume Hood
The process of finding the right fume hood can be a little complicated if you don't know the right questions to ask. You can save yourself a lot of trouble if you know the answers to these questions when you start shopping.
Concentrating Heat Sensitive Samples Without Degradation
Typically, sample concentration or solvent evaporation requires heat to drive the evaporation process. For heat sensitive samples, adding too much heat can damage or modify the structure of the analyte. By Jenny Sprung, Product Manager
