Who's Improving Bioprocessing In 2014?
By Eric Langer, President and Managing Partner, BioPlan Associates, Inc.
Last month, we discussed the broad trends in innovation in bioprocessing that will shape the next five years. These include better single-use devices, assays, connectors, and system integrations, as well as alternatives to chromatography. This month, we drill down into areas where product innovators are actually investing in these improvements and technologies. Below is a sampling of key bioprocessing innovations. A thorough treatment would require an encyclopedia; this is an appetizer for what's to come.

Ensure Integrity And Prevent Contamination In Single-Use Bags
By Trisha Gladd, Editor, Bioresearch Online
As single-use systems continue to gain in popularity, so does the use of single-use bags. A single contract manufacturer can use thousands of bags per year. Gallus Biopharmaceuticals has used more than 40,000 bags in just the past decade. Due to the volume increases in some of these bags, the prevention of possible contamination issues has never been more important. More pharma manufacturers are now looking to perform point-of-use tests to ensure the integrity of the bags they are using.
