  • From SharePoint to Cloud Computing: Microsoft's Life Sciences Evolution

    Microsoft is positioning SharePoint as a solution to the industry's innovation gap. In this interview with Senior Editor Paul Thomas at DIA 2010, Michael Naimoli, Director of Life Sciences Industry Solutions, discusses how manufacturers like GSK and Merck are using SharePoint as a knowledge management platform to find new ways to innovate.

  • Flowing Over: Continuous Manufacturing Finding a Home in Pharma

    The significant uptake of continuous processing in pharma coincides with technologies that enable it. Most of the technology gaps have been filled, says Microfluidics' CTO Mimi Panagiotou, PhD, who discusses why continuous processing is reaching a tipping point in pharma now, and various ways that manufacturers are using her company's MRT reactors for continuous crystallization and multi-phase reactions.

  • Automating R&D Workflows, Searching for Step-Change Productivity Gains

    Freeslate is working with J&J and other pharma clients to automate and integrate diverse workflows within pharma labs and make analytical data more accessible to development scientists. We talk with CEO John Senaldi to get a better sense of his company's solutions, including the benefits of Lab Execution & Analysis (LEA) software.

  • Single-Use Systems and Automation: An Unhappy Marriage?

    There's an obvious need for improved process control and monitoring with single-use bioprocess equipment and systems. It's a matter of maturity, and integration, says Sartorius Stedim's Paul Priebe. He puts the burden on the supplier community: "We can't just provide our customers with a box of legos," he says. Single-use technologies have to be more integrated and standardized.

    Two years ago, Joseph Lam, managing director of Beacons Pharmaceuticals Ltd., a leading generics manufacturer in Singapore, was awarded a U.S. patent for a novel drug facility layout, SPAH. Mention of this provoked some surprise from experts in the U.S. engineering and construction world. They had never heard of a plant layout, however creative, being patented.

  • Video: AZ’s Brennan on Manufacturing as a Core Competency

    AstraZeneca raised some eyebrows a few years ago when executives suggested that the company would outsource most of its manufacturing operations. In this interview, CEO David Brennan clarifies this perception: It’s all about recognizing your core competencies, he says, and for AZ that means biologics and late-stage small molecule production. For “commodity” operations, outsourcing makes perfect sense, he says.

  • Developing a Process Control Model for Mammalian Cell Culture Production

    Process development groups use modeling to improve the predictability of bioprocesses. Broadley-James Corp. and partners (Nova Biomedical, Emerson, Thermo Fisher, and others) are working to establish “black box” models—first for recombinant proteins and now for mammalian cell culture—that investigate control strategies to better inform process experimentation. Broadley-James’ Michael Boudreau explains.

  • Thermo Continuing to Ramp Up Spectroscopy Offerings

  • Podcast from ISA 2008: Wireless Enable Your Old Gauges

    Harry Sim left Honeywell for Cypress Envirosystems (a subsidiary of Cypress Semicon) two years ago because he had an idea that needed Silicon Valley innovation and technology. Now, with Honeywell’s help, Sim’s wireless gauge readers are giving new life and a digital flair to outmoded dial gauges—at Genentech and other pharma sites. Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Senior Editor Paul Thomas spoke with Sim at the recent ISA 2008 show in Houston.
