Early screening and innovative solutions key to drug development

The vast majority of clinical drug candidates fail during the development stage because of poor absorption, distribution, metabolism or toxicity (ADME/Tox) problems. However, new screening techniques will help to reduce attrition rates. Sean Ottewell reports.

Standardisation is the key to developing future solutions

The pharmaceutical industry is a very different animal compared with other industries, particularly when it comes to laboratory testing. In the case of chemical manufacturing, for example, each batch of product undergoes quality control testing and a record of these results has to be kept for a short time.

Standardised solutions are key to dna microarray growth

Compared with the total research products market, the DNA microarray market continues to experience robust growth world wide, says new analysis by Frost & Sullivan.

Spectrometer solutions

Carl Zeiss has two new solutions available which will make the use of its MCS500 and Corona diode array spectrometer series in the brewing and beverage industries.

"Digital automation for powerful, cost-effective production solutions"

When an Italian manufacturer of anti cancer compounds chose to update its automation systems, it turned to a supplier with a long track record of meeting FDA regulations. The result is a powerful, cost-effective solution.

Fluid Handling solutions with laboratory pumps

Generally speaking all media/reagents entering/leaving a bioreactor must be sterile. This usually is achieved by autoclaving the liquid itself plus all the contact surfaces between the feed reservoir and the reactor.

Driers provide energy efficient solutions

Removing excess moisture in food processing and storage improves productivity, hygiene and prevents clogging of powders so reducing the rate of perish.

Analytical solutions for bioproduct characterisation problems

The structural characterisation of biotechnology products presents a challenge for modern analytical techniques. In contrast to small molecule drugs, biopharmaceuticals can be extremely large, complex entities, often comprising of multiple disulphide-bridged proteins or glycoproteins.In particular, these products demand the use of methods capable of determining the primary structure of a recombinant or engineered molecule and of detecting and assigning post-translational modifications and microheterogeneities. By Dr Fiona M Greer.

Clear sample solutions in analysis of fruit and vegetable juice

Dr Achim Gessler looks at the problems associated with control and monitoring during the process analysis of fruit and vegetable juices.

drug discovery: a range of solutions

Pharmaceutical companies are currently facing the challenge of significantly increasing the number of NCEs to sustain profitability and investor confidence. This directly impacts on HTS, as this process is at the centre of lead discovery in most major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
