Quality Management: How Much Are Vendors To Blame?
By Eric Langer, President and Managing Partner, BioPlan Associates, Inc.
Biopharmaceutical manufacturing is one of the most demanding industries on its suppliers: demanding that its vendors be prequalified as primary or secondary, and requiring confirmations of product provenance, certificates of analysis, and other sometimes onerous documentation. All of this is done for drug product quality and consistency.

White Paper: Kinetic Analysis Of Antibodies From Different Cultured Media
By David Ho, Tom Fletcher, and Jessie H.T. Ni, Irvine Scientific
The Octet QKe platform is evaluated to establish an analytical method for assessing the effects of media condition on the quality and activity of cultured antibodies.


Q&A: What Are The Current Drivers And Directions In Bioprocess Monitoring?
By William Whitford, Thermo Fisher Scientific
What are the issues in bioprocessing monitoring? Accurate, timely, and nonperturbing monitoring of bioprocesses has always been of interest. Drivers of this begin from the need to know as much as possible about the state of the cultured cells, their environment, or the process during development and optimization. PAT-inspired process monitoring also provides increased process understanding in development and better control in manufacturing. A number of both classic and brand-new needs demand that we better understand what's going on within the bioreactor. Concerns in bioprocess monitoring begin with all the standard issues of accuracy, precision, and linearity. But, current bioprocessing quality initiatives and process developments are presenting additional demands.


Application Note: Eliminate The Need For Grab-Sample Analysis With On-Line Direct TOC And Conductivity Verification Analyzers
By Beckman Coulter Life Sciences
Frequently, CIP (clean-in-place) processes are validated and verified using laboratory grab sample analysis. The disadvantage of using this on an ongoing basis is that the number of grab samples required can be costly in terms of time and laboratory instrument reagents.


Case Study: Transporting Cleanroom Components By Air Freight
By Envirotainer
In end of 2013, NuFlare was challenged with the task of transporting a highly sensitive objective lens used in semiconductor manufacturing from Japan to Germany. The lens had been produced in a cleanroom environment and any exposure to normal conditions would quickly ruin the lens. This meant that the requirements for temperature, vibration, and humidity exposure were strict.
