Achieving Optimal Performance from Single Use Systems.
Webinar : Achieving Optimal Performance from Single Use Systems.
Stewart McNaull, Section Leader, Upstream Process Development, from our RTP, North Carolina Office, and Bo Kara, Director of Science & Technology from our Billingham, UK site, delivered this webinar organised by Xtalks. During the webinar they discussed how we have provided manufacturing flexibility under accelerated timelines on a cost-effective basis, and how we compared process and product quality data for single-use systems vs stainless steel reactors, critical factors to consider when selected the elements of the final (1000L) manufacturing train.

Optimizing Expression Systems
Jonathan Pointon, PhD, principal scientist, describes in this article in the July issue of BioPharm International how FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies' pAVEway(TM) expression system can help ensure high product titers and efficient scale-up to GMP manufacture, while minimizing issues such as leaky expression, that can have detrimental effects on host and plasmid stability.

Site Specific PEGylation at Histidine Tags
John Liddell, Ian Hodgson and Charles Heise at FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, Billingham, UK, are co-authors of this paper, in conjuntion with PolyTherics Limited, and UCL School of Pharmacy. The article, which describes the covalent conjustation of PEG site-specifically to a polyhistidine tag (His-tag) on a protein, can be viewed online on Bioconjugate Chemistry here or you can download a copy here.
'Drawn to Scale'
Graham McCreath, Head of Process Design and Mahesh Shivhare, Senior Process Statistician at FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, Billingham, UK, discuss how small scale process modelling can be used in simulation studies to help predict the performance of a commercial biopharmaceutical process.
