Products packaged for consumer use by the pharma industry go through a battery of tests related to how the user applies the product. Creams and ointments, for example, are filled into tubes and jars; the effort needed to extract them from their container and spread on skin is the appropriate test.
Profile Advantage enhances metal detection performance by up to 50 percent in challenging product effect applications. This sensitivity improvement means significantly smaller pieces of metal contamination can be found.
A major multinational pharmaceutical company determined that pH maintenance accounts for 46% of all the field work. Customer wanted to increase pH reliability and eliminate rework/scrap due to poor pH measurements. They also wanted to streamline maintenance practices.
Investments are the building blocks of a company's future. Planning and implementing them requires strategy and system and decision-makers who know their goals and carry out the implementation according to plan are more successful than those who rely exclusively on their impulses.Meaningful information forms the basis of a good investment decision and it helps to protect the future prosperity of your company. This white paper will help you answer several question regarding the total cost of ownership (TCO) of production line equipment including “have you clarified the foundations of your investment decisions?” and “how do you determine and calculate the return on investment (ROI) time of an investment?”
Food manufacturers typically install an x-ray inspection system at the end of the production line, although it can be installed at any point during the production process. But, which are the best locations for x-ray inspection? Where are the critical control points to ensure the highest levels of product safety? Should x-ray inspection be at the beginning of the production line, where the raw materials arrive, at some intermediate stage, or at the end of the line before products are shipped out? Or would product safety and quality be better served by installing x-ray systems at more than one critical control point? This white paper addresses these questions to help you understand the most effective locations of critical control points.
In recent years, container closure integrity (CCI) testing has steadily moved up the pharmaceutical manufacturing agenda. Latest research has shown that not only ampoules are prone to CCI defects. Other primary packaging types such as vials, cartridges and syringes equally require thorough testing, especially when filled with lyophilized products. Consequently, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has been revising its General Chapter 1207, calling for more quantitative, validated CCI test methods. A significant shift is expected towards non-destructive technologies.
The Center for Regenerative Medicine (ZRM) in Zurich is part of the Center for Clinical Research (ZKF), which is supported by the University Hospital Zurich and the University of Zurich. The ZRM combines basic biomedical research and clinical applications in the field of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine uses cell-based technologies for the treatment of tissue and organ damage (e. g. growing skin for burn victims).
