CO2 incubators enable the necessary environmental control and isolate cell cultures from external conditions and contamination. Which one is the best fit for your research?
Process equipment used in the healthcare industry follow rigid specifications for accuracy, consistency and cleanliness. These regulations ensure that end products are safe, pure, and effective. In particular, mixing equipment employed in the production of pharmaceuticals and medical devices deal with a higher level of complexity because their use is more specialized. Not one design fits all.
Cleanrooms, as well as any modular environment where attempts are made to keep airborne contaminants, temperature, relative humidity, differential pressure, static electricity and other factors under strict control, come in many shapes and sizes. Whether discussing hard- or softwalled or any of the other types of cleanroom, one thing is certain – it is virtually impossible to construct and maintain a completely contaminant-free environment, as long as personnel are working in it. There is no perfectly clean cleanroom; there are only levels of acceptable cleanliness.
Cell and gene therapies are currently produced in fixed facilities that require a significant upfront investment. Modular concepts offer an opportunity to shift from these large, fixed assets.
A comparison of the EPA Trace Metal Analysis test was performed using duplicate sets of glassware. One set was acid washed by hand. The other was cleaned in the Miele Model PG8593 Flex Series Labwasher.
As the industry continues its move toward biologics, innovative solutions and technologies will be needed to ensure a safe and reliable approach to the manufacturing and delivery of these drugs.
The team at Polypeptide Labs' overall project aim was to achieve homogenization (blending/tumbling) of potent lyophilized polypeptide product offloaded from a separate isolator.
