White Papers

  1. Leverage The Internet Of Things Within The Laboratory

    As science-based organizations look to leverage the internet of things (IoT) within the laboratory, careful consideration must be given to available technologies, data formats, and platforms. 

  2. Pharma Production Tech Transfers: Reaping Rewards, Reducing Risks

    Transferring production — and the technologies that undergird it — can be risky. The same product can behave differently in different equipment, resulting in low yields or even batch rejections.

  3. Preventing Contamination During Sterile Powder Transfer

    Several techniques can be used to help ensure product sterility assurance during the transfer of pharmaceutical powders from one process stage to the next using an intermediate container.

  4. QC Tests For Flow Properties Of Pharma Powders

    Understand why newer test methods are more effective than traditional methods.

  5. Medical Device Labeling — Regulations In The U.S., EU, And China

    While there are a certain amount of commonalities in regulations in each country, there are differences which necessitate care from global manufacturers when distributing products.

  6. Thermoplastic Material Selection For Injection Molding

    This white paper is aimed at an engineer who plans to quantitatively analyze a part, determine loads, stresses, strains, and environments and make an optimal material decision based on the analysis.

  7. Beyond Item-Level Serialization: Extending Traceability Schemes To Secondary And Tertiary Packaging

    Falsified and counterfeit medicines are a chronic problem for the pharmaceutical sector, with a third of all shipments in the worst affected parts of the world estimated to contain fake medicines.

  8. Accelerate Flavivirus Vaccine Production With Modern Bioprocess Tools And Solutions

    This white paper gives an overview of modern tools and solutions, adding flexibility and speed to both upstream and downstream operations in flavivirus vaccine production.

  9. The Hidden Challenges Of Pharmaceutical Serialization

    The true extent of the counterfeiting is unknown, since no global study has ever been carried out, but according to WHO estimates, up to 15% of all medicines are counterfeit.

  10. The EU Falsified Medicines Directive – Concerted Action To Secure The pharmaceutical supply Chain

    In recent years the production of, and trade in, falsified medicines – both research based and generic – has grown to become a global illegal business. At the borders of the EU alone over 30 million counterfeit medicines have been seized during the last five years, and the statistics regarding medicines supplied online are equally disturbing: according to the European Alliance for Safe Medicines, 62% of medicines purchased online are fake or substandard.
