Magazine Article: Molecular Imaging Cuts Time And Cost From Drug Discovery
By Scott Haller, Director of the Translational Imaging Center, MPI Research
Everyone involved in drug discovery is seeking ways to lower costs and improve efficiencies. One process that may help pharma and bio firms achieve both goals is molecular imaging (MI). MI is a process which uses imaging platforms, similar in concept to the cameras used to detect white light, to detect the radioactive decay products of a specific radioisotope.

White Paper: Improved Productivity In Peptide Purification
By Dr. Reno Nguyen, Scott Anderson, Dr. Chitra Sundararajan, Dennis McCreary, and Dr. Jochen Saar
Peptide therapeutics have been recognized as delivering the best of both worlds in terms of small molecule synthesis efficiency, biologics efficacy, and reduced toxicity. However, challenges in mass production and low oral availability have historically made them less than ideal drug candidates.


Article: Boost Efficiencies In Bioprocessing Workflows With A CIMS
By Gail Dutton
For many bioprocessing professionals, the proliferation of process monitoring and control solutions presents an immense opportunity to improve their knowledge of their mammalian cell cultivation or microbial fermentation processes.


White Paper: Analysis Of Dialyzed Flask Technology For Antibody Production
By Denis Phichith, Ph.D. and Brian Canna, MBA
Efficient and cost-effective hybridoma culture is essential to small- and large-scale monoclonal antibody production for research purposes.


White Paper: Improving Corrective And Preventive Measures In The Pharma Supply Chain
By Envirotainer
The pharmaceutical quality of medicinal products is of utmost importance to patient health and outcome: poor quality can lead to adverse effects — which can sometimes be severe enough to lead to morbidity and death, as well as treatment failure and hence, prolonged illness, lack of trust in the healthcare system, distributor and manufacturer, and a waste of financial resources.
