Penn State academics are using SR-Tek transparent pressure vessels to determine optimum production conditions for biopharmaceuticals in a bid to increase yields and prevent contamination events.
Biopharmaceuticals, or biologically produced medications, are rapidly being used to treat a host of chronic and genetic conditions. Expected to be worth $535 billion by 2027, the biopharmaceutical market is currently undergoing significant growth. However, production issues are hampering the industry’s ability to meet demand. Now a research team from Pennsylvania State University is looking to tackle one of the major bottlenecks in biopharmaceutical production – purification and filtration. Led by Dr Andrew Zydney, 14 graduate students from the university are investigating system effects, including…

All drugs have side effects and can be poisonous if used in in too large doses. Pharmacovigilance is a set of legally required activities performed by the pharmaceutical companies to ensure their drug has an acceptable benefit-risk profile. The adverse drug reactions can lead to hospitalization and even to death in worst cases. We list here how drugs could be made safer and how the number of deaths and hospitalization caused by drugs could be reduced. There are other ways to do it, and the actions presented here might not be the best ways in all countries, but we have explained our choices and we would be happy to hear alternative opinions from other people, authorities, and companies.
What is pharmacovigilance? The goal of pharmacovigilance is to make drugs safer by monitoring the benefit…
With its unique manufacturing technology, 3D printing allows us to produce unprecedented types of items.
With its unique manufacturing technology, 3D printing allows us to produce unprecedented types of items. However, the real advantage of 3D printing technology lies in its printing materials. Only by developing more new materials can the application fields of 3D printing technology be expanded. At present, 3D printing materials mainly include engineering plastics, photosensitive resins, rubber materials, metal materials, and ceramic materials. In addition, food materials such as colored plaster materials, artificial bone meal, cellular biological materials, and sugar can also be used in the field of 3D printing. What kind of polymer materials can be used in 3D Printing? Engineering plasti…
Among various applications of AI technology in the pharmaceutical industry, some are viewed as most important and worth more depth of exploration.
Among various applications of AI technology in the pharmaceutical industry, some are viewed as most important and worth more depth of exploration. AI assists in discovery of intervention targets The first step in drug development is to understand the biological origin and mechanism of the disease, and then to determine suitable targets through high-throughput technologies such as shRNA screening and deep sequencing, and finally to find relevant patterns through a large number of diverse data sources. This is huge work and often presents an important challenge for traditional methods. Unlike traditional methods, AI can systematically analyze exist…
Disintegration is an early way to evaluate whether a drug is effective. The disintegration time is an important control index for tablets, capsules, and dripping pills. Disintegration means that the solid preparation disintegrates and dissolves or breaks into granules under specified conditions.
Disintegration is an early way to evaluate whether a drug is effective. The disintegration time is an important control index for tablets, capsules, and dripping pills. Disintegration means that the solid preparation disintegrates and dissolves or breaks into granules under specified conditions. Except for insoluble coating materials or broken capsule shells, all solid preparations should pass through the screen. Therefore, a disintegration test should be carried out to make sure that a drug is rele…
We often associate the term ‘user experience’ (UX) with technology and, more specifically, software. However, to ignore its role in the physical world is to limit the potential of product design in improving safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Delivering exceptional UX means putting the user at the centre of design and incorporating the input of designers, stakeholders, experts and users themselves at every stage of the process. In pharma, this ‘user’ is the patient.  It isn’t as simple as developing products that patients enjoy using, though. Truly user-centred pharmaceutical products mitigate all patient challenges, including safety and security and adherence.  Built alongside patie…

Wide range of application in research and development and therapeutic areas to boost growth of metabolomics.
Launch of new products is expected to propel growth of the metabolomics market. For instance, in January 2021, JUNO Metabolomics launched the JUNO Viral Surveillance Platform based on its proprietary AI-Based Informatics System. Similarly, in June 2019, Bruker Corp. presented mass spectrometry and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance systems and other solutions for molecular phenomics and clinical metabolomics research at Metabolomics 2019. Moreover, increasing prevalence of chronic disorders is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to the American Cancer Society, in 2019, there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths…
There are two types of enzymes produced by biological cells: one type of enzymes that are produced inside the cell and then secreted outside the cell for action, called extracellular enzymes. Most of these enzymes are hydrolases. For example, the two amylases used in enzymatic production of glucose are secreted by Bacillus subtilis and root enzymes during fermentation. Such enzymes are generally high in content and easy to obtain.

The factors that affect enzyme catalysis (that is, enzyme activity) will definitely affect the rate of enzymatic reactions, but the factors that affect the rate of enzymatic reactions do not necessarily affect the catalysis. pH, temperature, ultraviolet light, heavy metal salts, inhibitors, activators, etc. will affect the catalysis and the rate of enzymatic reactions. The concentration of the enzyme, the concentration of the substrate, etc. will not affect the enzyme catalysis, but can affect the rate of the enzymatic reaction.

Just 40% of healthcare professionals say they are very aware of patient services, proving a gap exists between professionals and patients. For patients to feel heard, pharma companies should continue prioritizing a patient-centric approach; one that involves patients in a meaningful way throughout the drug development lifecycle.  In a new era of virtual engagement, ensuring that best practices are followed by HCPs and pharma companies is essential to placing patients at the heart of virtual engagement strategies.
Over the past year, millions of people across the globe looked to pharmaceutical companies for hope in the form of a vaccine. The coronavirus pandemic put the life sciences sector in the spotlight more so than ever before as patients continued to make their needs known and said…
