Rip It Up And Start Again: Developing A Bioreactor For Vaccines
By Jose Castillo, Director of Cell Culture Technologies at ATMI LifeSciences
While incremental advances can create solutions to technological problems, sometimes the only way to achieve the required result is to rip up the old rulebook and start from scratch. That’s the approach ATMI LifeSciences took in developing a bioreactor for vaccine manufacture.

WHITE PAPER: A Model For Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Quality Agreements
By Rafik H. Bishara, Steve Jacobs, and Dan Bell
More than a decade ago, the way business was conducted between pharmaceutical manufacturing companies and their supply chain providers was typically expressed through verbal expectations at the due diligence meeting, at the audit, or at the first project meeting, and that was pretty much done by using written bullet points.

APPLICATION NOTE: Minimizing Purification Bottlenecks While Achieving Maximum Sample Recovery
By Scott Anderson, Kathy Lawrence, Dennis McCreary, and Melissa Wilcox
By using the RevealX™ detection technology of the Reveleris® system, which independently triggers fraction collection from multiple detectors including UV and ELSD, this work will demonstrate that these bottlenecks can be reduced or eliminated without reducing the recovery of compounds of interest.

WHITE PAPER: Advantages Of Gamma Irradiation For Effective Sterilization Methods
By Betty Howard, Radiation TechTeam Manager, STERIS Isomedix Services
Many sterilization methods are available for pharmaceuticals, healthcare devices, and labware, including steam, sterile-filtration, ethylene oxide, vapor-phase hydrogen peroxide, electron-beam irradiation, and gamma irradiation. Each technique needs to be evaluated before use based on various criteria. Most importantly, one must consider how the technique will affect the final product characteristics and performance.
