Environmental Responsibility in Chinese Biopharmaceutical Companies

August 1, 2014

Corporate environmental responsibility (CER) is on the corporate and political agenda in China. This study determined the relevance of environmental aspects for biopharmaceutical companies in China and presents a new perspective that calls for an integration of CER into the business strategy as a source of competitive advantages.

Determining Criticality–Process Parameters and Quality Attributes Part III: Process Control Strategies—Criticality throughout the Lifecycle

March 1, 2014

This series presents a practical roadmap in three parts that applies scientific knowledge, risk analysis, experimental data, and process monitoring throughout the three stages of the process validation lifecycle. In Parts I and II, risk analysis and process characterization studies were used to assign criticality risk levels to critical quality attributes and critical process parameters, and the concept of a continuum of criticality was established. In Part III, the author applies the continuum of criticality to develop the process control strategy and move through Stages 2 and 3 of the new process validation lifecycle.

Determining Criticality—Process Parameters and Quality Attributes Part II; Design of Experiments and Data-Driven Criticality

Metacomplex Formation and Binding Affinity of Multivalent Binding Partners

November 1, 2013

A study to investigate metacomplex formation in the hetero-association of a multivalent antigen, streptavidin (SA), and a bivalent antibody (Ab) using a composition-gradient multiangle light-scattering (CG-MALS) system consisting of a composition-gradient device, a MALS detector, and a UV/Vis absorption detector.
