Many new biological drug products using recombinant DNA technology, such as monoclonal antibodies, are produced in cell culture. The host cell produces the therapeutic proteins that are often secreted outside the cell into the surrounding culture medium. Impurities can result from the host cells or cell substrates, such as host cell protein and host cell DNA. This application brief addresses removal of DNA using cellulosic depth filters. Learn more.
Homogenization Of Vaccines By Robert Cupka, GEA Niro Soavi
Since the late nineteenth century, public health officials have recommended and enforced vaccines for a small number of highly infectious and communicable diseases. Vaccines work with the immune system's ability to recognize and destroy foreign proteins (antigens) that it determines are "nonself." Today, however, there are more than 200 new vaccines in the research pipeline, including one for HIV.
Decontamination Of Laboratory Animal Research Rooms Using Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide By G. McDonnell, Steris
Walter Reed Army Institute for Research is a U.S. government laboratory facility located in the Washington D.C. area. The institute houses an animal research facility consisting of more than 15 animal rooms, designed for several different types of laboratory research animals, a BL2 lab, and a BL3 lab. The focus of this case study is cycle development and decontamination testing of two animal rooms having volumes of 1750 ft3 (50 m3) and 1875 ft3 (53 m3) using a VHP 1000 Biodecontamination System.
