Standardization Is Key To Building A Successful Global Business Strategy

Standardized approaches to biomanufacturing can lower costs, improve outcomes, and alter the landscape of the global pharmaceutical market.

Five Tests For Pharmaceutical Containment

As active pharmaceutical ingredients increase in potency and become more hazardous to work with, pharmacological and chemical containment devices are required to meet containment performance targets through independent testing before use in laboratories can begin. Typically, we test containment equipment against some minimum performance standard. This is necessary to protect procedural integrity and the sensitive products undergoing processing.

Serialization And Aggregation Requirements In Russia

Russian president Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law No. 488-FZ, which deals with the amendments to the “Principles of State Regulation of Trading Activities in the Russian Federation.”

Shedding Light On Insulin Aggregation With The Litesizer 500

Formulation of stable protein drugs is challenging, as most proteins are sensitive to sunlight, high and low temperatures, pH, and so on. This application note demonstrates how protein aggregation can be monitored and particle size and mass measured quickly and conveniently by using light-scattering techniques. Furthermore, the transmittance can also provide a very rapid indication of the extent of aggregation.

Comparative TOC Rinse-Up Study Of Pharmaceutical Tubing

Total organic carbon (TOC) content provides a measure of the cleanliness of single-use materials and components considered for use in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. In this application note, the results of a rinse-up study to measure the TOC from four different tubing types is presented. The silicone tubings were each rinsed with deionized (DI) water, which was then sampled and analyzed off-line to determine the TOC content from each.
