Patient-Centric Design: The Next Frontier In Drug Delivery
Patient-centric is one of those terms we suddenly seem to hear mentioned often. Everyone in pharma wants patients to know that it’s their comfort and well-being that are always at the forefront of development efforts for medicine and delivery devices.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
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
Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination: Vapor Vs. Aerosolized Systems
When facing a microbial contamination challenge, hether from multidrug-resistant organisms in a hospital or in bio-pharmaceutical production facilities, not all hydrogen peroxide-based decontamination systems are the same.
Does Rheology Matter To Manufacturing
You bet it does, whether or not manufacturing realizes it. Rheology is the science that looks at how materials flow. Whether the product is a liquid, cream, paste, or solid, the manufacturing process must transfer raw ingredients through multiple stages to create the finished product. By Robert McGregor, Global Marketing and High End Product Manager, Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc.
Improving Quality Processes For Medical Device Development And Manufacturing
Organizations that consistently develop and launch new products efficiently in an environment of increasing regulatory scrutiny, successfully manage regulatory risk. By Mike Kuehne, ACSYS, Inc.
Detecting Integrity Breaches In A Range Of Pharmaceutical Blister Package Types
Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents. By Dr. D. Dixon, University of Ulster
Achieving Automation Of Hygienic Production Processes
In the food and beverage industry, and also in the production of medicines and cosmetics, excellent hygiene in processes and around the plant plays a key role. This is ensured by stringent legislative regulations. Standards such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) for food processing and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) for FDA-compliant processes in the pharmaceutical industry define extremely stringent requirements for cleanliness, safety and product quality. By Dipl.-Ing. Sebastian Kundel, Product Manager Process and control valves, Bürkert Fluid Control Systems
