• Biopharma Quality Management Best Practices: An Approach To Quality Initiatives

    Quality management is an increasingly important focus for biopharmaceutical manufacturers looking to avoid production problems and failures. And it’s increasingly becoming a multifaceted, industrywide concern as regulators take a closer look. With this in mind, it’s useful to see how the industry is approaching quality management in terms of the initiatives being pursued.


  • Understand And Resolve The Risks Of Combustible Dust

    While the entire pharmaceutical industry must be aware of combustible dust from API and excipient ingredients, the production of oral solid dosage (OSD) drugs is the most at risk.

  • How To Eliminate Heat Effect In Your Fume Hoods

    Chemical procedures commonly require the introduction of heat. This is typically in the form of a hot plate or open flame. While the best place to perform these types of chemical procedures is inside a chemical fume hood, most people are unaware of heat’s effect on the airflow through the fume hood, and the potential impact on containment.

  • Water Purity And Lab Glassware Washers: Just How "Pure" Does It Have To Be?

    Water purity supplied to a laboratory glassware washer for rinsing has been the subject of debate in regards to the end result of producing clean glassware. It should be noted that the term ‘deionized water’ does not reference any specific water purity level. The deionization of water produces water within a wide range of purity levels. The deionization process can be used to make medium grade water at 10-20 microsiemens of conductivity, or, it can be used in polishing systems to produce water with a 16-18 megohm resistivity level.

  • Why Are My Freeze Dry Flasks Breaking? 4 Pre-Freezing Tips

    After 15 years of telling customers not to fill their freeze dry flasks to the rim, and not to place their freeze dry flask straight up and down in the freezer, and not to put the lids on their freeze dry flasks during pre-freezing, guess what I did?  By Jenny Sprung, Product Manager

  • Four Things To Know About Generic Pharmaceuticals & Freeze Drying

    Lyophilization is a useful tool in the manufacturing of prescription drugs, both generic and name brand. The article "Freeze Drying Generics: Cost Advantages and Considerations" covers the pros and cons of lyophilization in the pharmaceutical sector, but doesn’t offer advice on how to optimize the lyophilization process. The additional information below this excerpt gives context to the author's comments. By Jenny Sprung, Labconco Product Manager

“The IMD-W system is one of the first of its kind to respond to a call from the pharmaceutical industry for on-line water bioburden analysis (OWBA),” said JeffreyWeber, PAT project manager at Pfizer and one of the founding members of the OWBA workgroup. He added, “BioVigilant’s IMD-W system is a new complementary tool at our disposal, for trending the state of control of water systems in real time through continuous bioburden monitoring.”
