Zack Gurard-Levin, PhD, says with new innovations in assay methodologies, scientists no longer have to make sacrifices to do quality drug discovery research.
SPECIAL FEATURE – Outsourcing Analytical Testing: Novel Services Elicit Consistent, Quantifiable, & Faster Results
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin, in her latest report, describes some novel analytical testing services aimed at ensuring quality and safety, and in some cases, speeding the process and saving money.
IMAGE-BASED CHARACTERIZATION – Non-Invasive, Quantitative Characterization of Lyophilized Drug Product Using Three-Dimensional X-Ray Microscopy Analytics
Shawn Zhang, PhD, Johnathan Goldman, PhD, Xiaodong Chen, PhD, et al present a new method that not only characterizes quantitatively the microstructures of the lyophilized drug samples, but also presents the potential to correlate the microstructures with physical properties to optimize parameters in drug formulation, cycle development, process scale-up, stability control, and administration.
For each participating company, this section presents a detailed summary highlighting their core technologies, capabilities, technologies, and services.
Matt McGann explains how Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy is the final addition in the biophysical characterization scientist’s toolkit.
CHARACTERIZATION CORNER – From Dilute Sample to Clinically Representative Formulation: Analyzing the Higher Order Structure of mAbs Over a Wide Dynamic Range
Jeff Zonderman explains how the characterization of mAbs at high concentration in clinically representative formulations, without the need for dilution or concern for interference from a formulation buffer’s excipient, is vital.
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin speaks with several leading analytical labs and CDMOs to review their technologies, services, and new strategies to operate in this ever-changing environment.
Cheryl Johnson says the study of E&L has been evolving for many years, and as pharmaceutical manufacturers, packaging vendors, and regulatory agencies gain more knowledge of extractable compounds, the scope of E&L guidelines grows with it.
Flo Orim, MD, PhD, focuses on biomedical aspects of research, development, and commercial endeavors in the human microbiome space, including essential background information, evolution of the field, and advances in basic research.
Brent Lieffers, Senior Director of Operations, discusses the need for keeping up with trends and technology as an innovative CDMO.
