A value stream analysis reveals worthwhile starting points for implementing lean laboratory processes
The process industry is seeing manufacturing structures change, production chains becoming global and higher requirements placed on manufacturing processes. Businesses need to adapt to declining sales volumes and the demand for more specific product characteristics.
Smart sample preparation improves selectivity of analytical procedures for biopharmaceuticals and other drug products
Impurity testing is an essential part of pharmaceutical quality control because toxicity and content of impurities contained in drug products can impair patient safety. This requires suitable, validated analytical methods.
Development of new drug carriers based on the principles of nature
Developing new antimicrobial treatment strategies is becoming a key challenge in today's medical research. The targeted delivery of drugs into infected human tissue could significantly improve the antibiotic therapies to combat difficult-to-treat microorganisms.
A photoswitchable catalyst system enables tailoring of polymer properties
Light is a powerful tool to manipulate a vast variety of chemical processes. The use of specific photo-chromic molecules allows chemists to perform reactions in a reversible fashion with a high spatio-temporal resolution.
Developing bio-based carrier systems for gene transfer
The targeted transport of DNA and RNA using vectors (mostly made from synthetic polymers) in cell cultures has become part of routine practice in biological R&D – a fact highlighted by the multitude of commercial kits now available. To date, however, obstacles relating to use in patients have ...
Industry 4.0 concepts that support regulatory compliance and data integrity in lab environments
A few years ago the term “Industry 4.0” was used to describe a future vision of digitized production. This concept is now being implemented by industry. It is characterized by a high degree of automation and networked processes, without which global competitiveness would no longer be achievable.
Using mass spectrometry to detect the presence of small polymer molecules
For several decades, food packaging has made handling food easier and helped to maintain its quality. Plastic packaging possesses the advantage that it is light and flexible, with a vast variety of polymer modifications allowing a wide range of usages.
Smart and networked solutions pave the way to the laboratory of the future
Laboratory 4.0, the internet of things (IoT), big data, cloud computing or storage, blockchain, cybercrime, thingbots, predictive maintenance, artificial intelligence et al.: the thicket of buzzwords is getting denser almost by the day. They feature in just about every newspaper article about ...
Process analytics in biotechnology
As far back in time as several thousand years ago our ancestors were using biotechnical processes to make beer, wine and bread. These days, biotechnological processes are not merely used to produce food – they enable a wide variety of applications, from wastewater treatment to manufacturing ...
Generating aptamers using an automated in vitro selection method
DNA and RNA aptamers are high-affinity, nucleotide-based binding molecules which, as an alternative to antibodies, are already being widely used in analytics, diagnostics and therapeutics. The generation of new aptamers and their industrial implementation opens up new potentials for a wide range ...
q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process
The q&more concept is to increase the visibility of recent research and innovative solutions, and support the exchange of knowledge.
