Medical Device Measurement Accuracy: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly
By Jim Tennerman, North American Life Science Segment Manager, Vaisala Oyj
Measurement accuracy is a subjective concept applied to all kinds of measurements. Generally speaking, accuracy refers to the degree of “closeness” of the measurement to a “true value.” This definition is usually good enough, but not always. The subjective nature of accuracy allows for a wide variety of claims that may technically be true, but misleading at the same time.

WHITE PAPER: Salt-Tolerant Membrane Chromatography: Reduces Processing Time And Controls Costs
By Gregory Krueger, Field Marketing Manager, Sartorius Stedim Biotech
Removing residual contaminants from a protein solution at large scale is rarely a straightforward process. Handling large process volumes and working with buffer conditions incompatible with downstream processing steps is costly and time- consuming. Dilution and other steps to adjust conditions simply add time and cost to a process without improving the purity of the target molecule.

WHITE PAPER: 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.
