The ISO Standard 22519 claims to be the new word in purified water (PW) compliance. In fact, the standard neither promotes innovation nor compliance. On the contrary, it brings confusion to those that are embarking on purified water production and use in the pharmaceutical industry.
The road to successfully acquiring a property for a biotech startup is littered with potholes and barriers. After the operating organization decides that leasing is the most economical approach, the search should focus on the technical merit of the property and the features it offers. This article provides a technical due diligence checklist that the operating organization can use to frame its decision-making process.
The FDA recently published GMP drug inspection data from CDER that addresses drug inspections conducted during the agency's 2018 fiscal year. This article examines the FY2018 data and evaluate six years’ worth of trends in FDA GMP inspection enforcement.
New EU draft guidance, Guideline on the quality requirements for drug-device combinations, and U.S. draft guidance, Principles of Premarket Pathways for Combination Products, are the latest attempts to regulate combination products. In Part 2 of this series, we cover the EU guideline and show how two diverge.
We in pharma and biopharma are required to verify or check or double-check an action or event to be sure it was performed and performed correctly. But what do these words really mean? How do they differ in terms of their actual execution?
A race is being run to create the pharmaceutical manufacturing of the future and with Pharma 4.0, powerful market trends are shaping the running field.
This two-part article will provide an introduction to the three general prefilled syringe (PFS) types and will share important factors to take into consideration for your drug product. In this first part, we will discuss the needle-free PFS and the dual-chamber system.
One of the most significant moves for a growing biotech or pharmaceutical company — sometimes considered as a graduation step — is the acquisition of property to conduct clinical trials and manufacture commercial products. In the first installment of this two-part series, we will explore what considerations companies need to make before they decide what type of property to pursue.
This article discusses four topics related to single-use bioprocessing which are commonly cited by end users as amenable to future development.
This paper takes an introductory look at the techniques used to investigate porosity, the data generated and their strengths and limitations for specific materials, covering more complex approaches such as the Reverberi method and the application of non-local density functional theory (NLDFT) to illustrate the necessity for, and potential benefits of, more advanced analysis.
This paper provides practical information on the efficient use of specialty mixing equipment for the preparation of low, medium and high viscosity solid-liquid mixtures under low and high shear conditions.
Read how Resin specifications, process qualification and process controls established at all stages of the manufacturing process can ensure quality, change control and business continuity.
Composed of both antibody and small molecule elements, ADCs have a complex structure from which many different impurities can arise. Drawing on existing ICH guidelines, a recent publication co-authored by AbbVie suggests a science-based approach that can be applied to the design of an effective control strategy for small molecule impurities in ADC therapeutics.
Whether you are conducting a phase 3 clinical trial of a new therapy or looking for biomarkers, you will need to collect samples, and that leads to a number of questions. Following are some basics to help with planning sample collection and to help make the process as cost-effective as possible.
