Routinize Machine Learning to Realize Biotech Gains

The biotech industry needs a data interchange standard that translates like the batch machine learning and XML standards that are used in manufacturing but are not yet used between R&D and manufacturing. When such a standard is developed, implementing machine learning will be simpler than ever.

Filtration Focuses on Capacity and Concentration Pain Points

A therapeutic protein or monoclonal antibody (mAb) can be turned into an effective therapy and a revenue-generating product only if it can be efficiently filtered from the process stream. If a product is inefficiently...

Single-Use Technology: Enjoy the Upsides, Handle the Downsides

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.

How Effective Buffer Management Facilitates Biopharmaceutical Production

Biopharmaceutical production depends on buffers. Making sure the right buffer solutions are available, in the right place on the manufacturing line, at the right time, and in the right quantity, is a considerable challenge.

Large-Scale Automation Promises to Help Treat Macular Degeneration

French scientists developed a protocol where hPSC cells were exposed to three different cytokines in sequence. This protocol was then transferred to a cell culture robot to help upscale the production process. The approach allowed the team to increase the yield of RPE cells they could obtain and allowed them to use automatic treatments.
