A study that analysed QA/QC incidents at several biomanufacturing plants has revealed how companies can best hope to detect and mitigate virus contamination.
ASTM International says its new standard for single use system manufacturing processes will help to prevent the contamination of biopharmaceuticals with foreign particles.
Researchers have used CRISPR-Cas to edit the genes of contaminating proteins in mammalian cells used to produce recombinant-protein drugs, which could reduce costs and strengthen quality.
A new method has been developed by researchers which they say could allow E. coli and other pharmaceuticals to be produced in space, using shearing force and a viscometer.
Researchers have discovered low-cost preservatives that enable freeze-dried cellular machinery to retain full activity when stored at room temperature for cell-free biotechnology.
Researchers have shown that the CALB lipase enzyme can be used to produce macrocycles of a specified shape using biocatalysis.
The US NIH has initiated a clinical trial for remdesivir and two pharmaceutical companies will work together to manufacture antibody treatments to tackle the coronavirus.
Chemists have synthesised a single catalyst, able to perform multistep cascades of chemical reactions to produce a pharmaceutical product.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a technique that most have heard of but many avoid, especially when dealing with larger biological macromolecules. Why? The common wisdom is that NMR can be complicated, expensive and involves quantum physics and complex equations. In the fast-paced industrial biopharmaceutical environment there may be…
European Pharmaceutical Review explores how plants can be used for large-scale, glycosylated protein bioproduction for the pharma industry.
Scientists have divised a way to manufacture protein drugs using lettuce leaves, which has presented a potential drug for pulmonary arterial hypertension.
