Medicago’s Innovative Vaccine Production Using Tobacco Plants
In the American South, below the old Mason-Dixon Line, you can walk down some house-lined streets in summer and see tidy plantings of tobacco growing in the front yards. Tobacco barns, built for drying, not storing, are as common down there as hay barns in Wisconsin.

ICH Q2 – the Challenge of Measuring Total Organic Carbon In Modern Pharmaceutical Water Systems
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is one of the quality attributes defined in the European and USA pharmacopoeias for pharmaceutical waters. Modern water treatment systems can deliver such high purity water that TOC levels can be consistently close to zero and very difficult to measure with any accuracy. This paper discusses some of the challenges when using TOC analysers to demonstrate pharmacopoeial TOC level compliance for modern water systems in the light of the ICH Q2 document from the International Conference on Harmonisation.
A Mesoporous Silica Carrier Optimized For Liquisolid And Lipid-Based Formulations
Syloid® XDP silicas are mesoporous, amorphous, silica gel excipients with a unique morphology that create an excellent solid porous carrier for pharmaceutical formulations. The combined adsorption capacity, porosity, particle size, and density provides a tool to create formulations which can expedite manufacturing and improve efficacy of the final dosage form.
Enhancing Stability In Nutraceutical Products
Nutraceuticals are natural products that are used to provide medical or physiological benefits.
Challenges & Opportunities: Encapsulation Of Liquid & Semi-Solid Formulations Into Oral Capsules
The encapsulation of liquids and semi-solids provides solutions for convenient delivery through improved oral absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs.
Automated pH Adjustment In An Intelligent Single-Use Mixing Platform
Most pH adjustment process steps in single-use biomanufacturing require manual manipulation of the product and vessel, including off-line sampling, pH measurement, and the addition of acid and base.
A New Formulation Line for Insulin Vials
The Danish Pharmaceutical Group Novo Nordisk has chosen Bürkert, the fluid control specialists, to equip its latest production line for the formulation of insulin vials at its site in Chartres (Eure-et-Loir), France. A technical solution supported by Bürkert allows the pharmaceutical leader to simplify their processes and increase productivity.
