    How important is matrix effect in analyzing bioprocess samples?
    Meet the Expert: Petra, Analytical Scientist The matrix effect is the effect on an analytical assay caused by all other components of the sample except the specific compound (analyte) to be analyzed. Matrix effects are observed either as a loss in response, resulting in an underestimation of the amount of analyte, or…

    Developing stable cell lines for difficult to express proteins: laronidase example
    Meet the Expert: Wilfried, Director of Science and Innovation For protein-based biopharmaceuticals, product yield from mammalian cell lines is a critical economic driver. Naturally, increased specific productivity – microgram product per cell per day – decreases the cost of goods. This allows lower prices while retaining expected profit margins. That is why…

    Analytical assay development: go ALL the way
    Meet the Expert: Gert, Analytical Assay Scientist The truth is; the accuracy and robustness of any process under development or manufacturing outcome is only as good as the reliability of the assays needed to understand the process. The effort involved to get to a comfortable situation where all necessary tests are available,…

    Latest advancements in bioprocess intensification for efficient biopharmaceutical production
    Meet the Expert: Ahd, Bioprocess Project Director Current costs of biopharmaceutical manufacturing often prevent segments of the world’s population from accessing critical medicines. Sometimes the costs even prevent medicines from being marketed. A significant part of these costs come from the need for large and expensive manufacturing facilities. Significant bioprocess intensification can…

    Select your protein expressing cell line: first time right
    Meet the Expert: Alfred, Global Technical Director The selection of stable protein producing cell lines is a tedious process. Generally, two substantially different approaches are being pursued in the field. One strategy relies on robot-assisted, high-throughput screening of thousands of transfected expression cells. The other hinges on the stringent selection of only…

    In manufacturing it’s ALL about Quality Control
    Meet the Expert: Caroline, Sr. Scientist Quality Control The Quality Control (QC) department performs analytical development, assay qualification, assay validation, testing on raw materials, cell substrates, virus seeds and cell banks. The department is also heavily involved in the in-process testing as well as testing the final drug substance and drug product.…

    Drivers in selecting a reliable partner for clinical GMP manufacturing
    Meet the Expert: Pim, GMP Scientist Clinical GMP manufacturing and release of biopharmaceutical products are two of the most sought-after outsourcing demands in life sciences. These activities are needed to allow subsequent testing in human subjects for safety and efficacy. Globally, the market for this outsourcing activity is estimated at about $3…

    Quality specialist is key in any biopharmaceutical development team
    Meet the Expert: Margreet, QA specialist The ability to translate biopharmaceutical research into products is known to have a high failure rate. A staggering 75% of published preclinical data cannot be reproduced or validated to allow further product development1. I believe that the only way to prevent such disappointments both scientifically, as…

    The need to increase production yield of therapeutic proteins
    Meet the Expert: Abhinav, Principal Scientist. Biopharmaceuticals are expensive due to the many years of research and development associated with the discovery, development, clinical testing, and market launch of these medicines. As an example; the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a monoclonal antibody called ipilimumab (Yervoy; Bristol-Myers Squibb, New York, NY)…
