  • Three Steps to Leveraging Expertise in Global Pharmaceutical Production

    Pharmaceuticals/Life Sciences companies have a broad geographical distribution of manufacturing assets combined with very lean support organizations and a shrinking pool of in-house experts. By providing key resources with real-time data and effective workflow tools, companies can leverage specialized knowledge and expertise regardless of location. Learn how leading process manufacturers are achieving the following benefits access to resource expertise—anytime‚ anywhere, quickly troubleshoot issues that affect performance, leverage real–time data to improve decision making, improve overall efficiencies to reduce costs.

  • Pharma 2020: Supplying the Future

    The pharma supply chain needs a radical overhaul, and PWC predicts that it will undergo three key changes over the next decade. It will fragment, with different models for different product types and patient segments. It will become a means of market differentiation and source of economic value. And, it will become a two-way street, with information flowing upstream to drive the downstream flow of products and services.

  • Mitigating Process Risk and Cost by Immobilizing Activated Carbon

    Drug manufacturers use activated carbon to reduce reaction impurities and de-colorize active ingredients. Its use, however, may result in operator exposure to carbon dust, high maintenance and cleaning costs, and difficulty in removing carbon from the process stream. 3M Purification's Zeta Plus Activated Carbon cartridge series minimizes this risk by immobilizing the activated carbon. This paper describes typical pharmaceutical applications for Zeta Plus, how the optimal carbon type and media grade are chosen for those applications, and best practices for carbon filtering during process scale-up.
