The Jefferson Institue for Bioprocessing is the first and only North American training institute in collaboration with the Dublin, Ireland-based National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT), utilizing the GE Healthcare FlexFactory.
Citizen scientists may participate in de novo protein design by playing the video game Foldit, which puts the implicit knowledge of biochemical experts into the hands of players, who are then able to exercise their own creativity and intuition. Gamers may design structures that lead to novel applications in medicine, such as vaccines and biologic drugs, as well as in other fields.
Viral safety as we know it is batchy, and hence patchy, but it needs to transition to continuous operations, which means that in viral clearance studies, the goal is seamlessness.
When new technologies are deployed, there’s always a fly in the ointment. In the case of single-use technology, extractables and leachables must be swatted away.
Single-use has long facilitated the manufacture of biologics and biosimilars. Going forward, it may prove essential to the manufacture of cell and gene therapies.
Young and emerging biotechnology companies rarely have enough background in biomanufacturing operations and clinical experience to get their products to the markets in an economic and efficient manner. Many turn to contract development and...
Bioprocessing is a massive undertaking, and the industry is always on the lookout for more ways to trim the fat and streamline manufacturing processes. This bioprocess intensification can improve efficiency, reduce costs and reagent usage, and even improve final product quality. But how intense is too intense?
