  • Container Closure Integrity Testing For Sterile Vial Products In Deep Cold Storage
    Container Closure Integrity Testing For Sterile Vial Products In Deep Cold Storage

    A vaccine-focused biotechnology company approached LIGHTHOUSE to help investigate a phenomenon observed in liquid vaccine product stored at -80°C. During QC testing, a number of vials were found to have an overpressure. This phenomenon represented a serious safety risk and LIGHTHOUSE was asked to support an investigation to identify the root cause.

  • Pharmaceutical Oral, Injectable And Semi-Solid Formulating
    Pharmaceutical Oral, Injectable And Semi-Solid Formulating

    In pharmaceutical formulating the elements are often not fully compatible and must be mixed following a strict procedure to obtain a stable and durable structure. This task is even more challenging when formulating with natural ingredients. The constant need to create new formulations or reformulate existing formulations requires thorough monitoring of formulation properties. This article outlines the crucial steps to be considered for a full and complete characterization of your formula.

  • Common Fume Hood Containment Problems
    Common Fume Hood Containment Problems

    While there are “bad” fume hoods, anything wrong with the entire system (exhaust fan, ductwork, building configuration, regulative dampers) may cause a lack of containment in a hood.
