Some pharmaceutical manufacturers can struggle to keep microorganisms away from their facilities, which sometimes goes unnoticed until it is too late. While there are numerous threatening microorganisms, this article focuses on some of the most troublesome, highlighting the hazards they pose and analysing how manufacturers can prevent microbial contamination in…
At CPhI (Frankfurt, November 5-7 2019), Telstar will be promoting the latest solutions in isolation technology systems, sterilisation and pharmaceutical freeze-drying applications, designed to ensure an aseptic and efficient production of pharmaceutical processes.
According to research from the Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance, the country’s pharma sector has capacity to grow. This article investigates some of the goals, challenges and proposals the report sets out for the industry.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) has been one of the most widely used techniques to characterise the temperature stability of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and provide important information in formulation optimisation. However, despite its widespread use, not all the information contained in DSC data, especially denaturation kinetics, is routinely extracted. In this…
This issue includes an investigation into the potential for continuous production lines in biopharma, information on new guidance released by China on their regulatory processes and an assessment of the FMD to improve the drug supply chain. Also within the issue are articles on nanomedicine development, monoclonal antibodies and pharmaceutical…
This series investigates cannabinoids and pharmaceutical interest with industry experts explaining the position of the ingredient. In this second piece, we discuss the challenges, legal implications and perceptions of cannabinoids.
Purification of a drug from host cell protein contaminants can be challenging, with low-level contamination often remaining after purification. Vanda Dolabela de Magalhães shares discussions on the subject from six Brazilian companies working in the biotech field.
Expert View: Eshmuno® CP-FT resin – developed for the flow-through removal of aggregates using frontal chromatography
Eshmuno® CP-FT cation exchange resin is specifically designed to provide efficient removal of monoclonal antibody (mAb) aggregates in the flow-through frontal chromatography mode of operation enabling loading capacities 10-times higher than traditional bind/elute CEX chromatography. It facilitates greater manufacturing flexibility and process intensification while reducing the overall cost for the…
ADVANCES in biotherapeutics are generating an increasing range of complex molecules that present unique and often complex purification challenges.
In this issue we explore reasons behind critical key drug shortages in the EU, whether viability methods effectively detect all viable organisms and how companies can future-proof their digital technologies ahead of Brexit. Also included are articles on higher order protein structure, FMD compliance and Raman spectroscopy.
