  2. Vaccine Manufacturer Installs Vial Filling Lines To Align With Pharmaceutical Capacity Needs

    The Indian vaccine manufacturer Serum Institute of India has a vision – to continually increase the production of affordable, high-quality vaccines. The founder and owner Dr. Cyrus S. Poonawalla believes that every child in the world should be granted access to inexpensive bacterial and viral vaccines against Tetanus, Influenza or MMR (mumps, measles and rubella), to name just a few.

  3. Millennium’s ELN Empowers Chemists And Biologists

    Conventional wisdom holds that biology is not just more complex to manage electronically, but actually more resistant than other areas of discovery to electronic systems such as electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs). But Millennium, the Takeda Oncology Company, found that by clearly defining workflows and implementing a highly configurable notebook, it could begin moving its entire discovery organization—encompassing both chemists and biologists—to a single ELN system.

  4. Simple Method For Sensitivity Comparison Of Raman Spectroscopic Instruments

    There is a need for a simple method that can be used to compare sensitivities of commercially available Raman instruments, especially in the demonstration and evaluation process. This short application note will address this need, with an easy method and non-toxic materials, so that those in search of instrumentation can more easily compare and contrast the performance of devices.

  5. Automation, Modularity Allow mAb Biotech To Cut Scale-Up Time

    Biomanufacturers, especially those facing the debut of biosimilars in core markets, have an urgent imperative to reduce manufacturing costs via increased productivity and yields. In turn, this drives a wide range of business decisions, including capital investment, process choices and design, and equipment selection. Learn how AlphaMab Co. Ltd, a fast-growing bio-developer and producer, cut scale-up time using a Quality by Design (QbD) approach.

  6. WuXi Biologics Installs New Vial Filling System To Increase Capacity

    WuXi AppTec needed an additional filling solution and contacted Bosch Packaging Services to support with a modification of its existing Bosch FLC 3040 filling machine.
