In the past 5 years, the biopharmaceutical industry has seen unprecedented change. Precipitated by the need to support a global client base with products that are more targeted, efficacious and cost effective, the challenge to have a robust manufacturing supply chain is more crucial than ever to a company’s survival.
Find out how a contract packaging company can deliver the expertise and flexibility needed to ship pharmaceuticals internationally.
To maintain the proper temperature of vaccines, West Pediatrics relies on Onset InTemp CX400 Series VFC data loggers for accurate and reliable temperature monitoring.
With 840 million inhabitants, and two-thirds of global pharmaceutical sales, the US and Europe are also a lucrative target for drug crime. New sales channels such as the internet as well as global and more complex manufacturing and distribution channels make it increasingly easier for pharmaceutical counterfeiters to market counterfeits directly or to infiltrate the supply chain.
Manufacturers and shippers of these products are under increasing pressure, as pharmaceutical and life science logistics becomes more complex and as the consideration towards better control of falsified medicines increases.
The next milestone for manufacturers, November 27, 2017, is the date by which pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to print a unique product identification code on all Rx units of sale and homogenous cases distributed domestically.
The complexity associated with manufacturing a ‘living drug’ should not be underestimated and it is important to consider that each product will have its own specific challenges and complexities.
This webinar from Proto Labs focuses on the main topic of rapid injection molding, how it works, design limitations, and design considerations. This topic will also be expanded to cover rapid overmolding and rapid insert molding. There will also be a brief discussion on how similar parts may be produced through industrial 3D printing.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an industrial 3D printing technology that is a full melting, layer-by-layer solidification process that fuses particles together. This webinar is the second installment of a series of webinars by Proto Labs on the topic of designing for 3D printing. Part 2 of this series presents a brief overview on how DMLS works, and what this technology has to offer, including surface finishes, resolutions, something requirements, and material properties. It also covers DMLS process considerations, design consideration, as well as some design examples.
Stereolithography is the gold standard for rapid prototyping and a great tool for 3D printing by excelling at high tolerances, small feature resolution, and smooth surface finishes. This webinar is the first installment of a series of webinars by Proto Labs on the topic of designing for 3D printing. Part 1 of this series presents a brief overview on how stereolithography works, its material properties, and key considerations such as resolution, support structure, build orientation, and finishing options.
In this webinar, academic and industry experts present several case studies that illustrate how novel lipid formulation strategies.
