The NEW USP Chapter 41: It's Easier Than You Think!
New regulations of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Chapter 41 have been in effect since December 1, 2013. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees this implementation and deems it as mandatory. The major scope of this chapter pertains to balances. The balances used for weighing are required by Chapter 41 to be calibrated.
It's about weighing accurately. Are you in compliance? Learn more.

Innovation In Disposable Connectors
By Eric Langer, President and Managing Partner, BioPlan Associates, Inc.
The single-use application market in biopharmaceutical manufacturing is rapidly expanding and highly innovation-driven. Adoption of single-use equipment in early manufacturing has reached a level of maturity that will spill into commercial-scale manufacturing in the near term. Indeed, results from our 10th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturers ( indicate that nearly half of biopharmaceutical manufacturers and CMOs either strongly agree (18 percent) or agree (28 percent) that they expect to see 100 percent single-use facility in operation within five years.
