Batch Control & Touch Technology
| By COPA-DATA
Wherever you are in the automation process, an interpretation is needed between the process engineers ‘instrument’ - the automation software and process equipment - and the process being controlled. The smooth operation and success of the process is based on the effective interpretation of the control system: from a digital representation into an analogue actuation in the real world.

Benefits of Automated Sample Preparation in Pharmaceutical Development and Quality Operations
| By Sotax
When we think of automation many images come to mind such as large robots bolting on doors on cars in seconds or the mesmerizing packaging machinery most pharmaceutical companies employ. In the pharmaceutical laboratory there are various types of automated instruments. Some automated devices have become ubiquitous. The auto injector on an HPLC is a tool that most consider indispensable. Fully automated sample preparation and dissolution analysis are common however their perceived benefits for purchase justification are primarily confined to labor savings. This article will explore additional ways that laboratory automation can pay off in a big way.

Bioanalysis of Biosimilars
| By PRA Health Sciences
Assessment of biosimilarity during non-clinical and clinical trials requires specific bioanalytical procedures. The concentration of the biosimilars and their reference compounds is established using pharmacokinetic (PK) methods. Immunogenicity assays are used to determine and further characterize any anti-drug antibodies (ADA) formed during these studies. These analytical methods are pivotal for establishing similarity of biosimilar products as compared to their reference compounds.

Biophysical Characterization of Epigenetic Protein Interactions
| By Malvern Instruments
Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression caused by nongenetic mechanisms, without alterations in gene structure or DNA sequence. The epigenetic state of a cell evolves during the cellular differentiation and development of an organism, and epigenetic changes are linked to cellular reprogramming. Because epigenetic mechanisms may also be responsible for the integration of environmental responses at he cellular level, they potentially play an important role in the development of som diseases.

Building the Next Generation IRT: An Exclusive Look Under the Hood of IXRS®3
| By Almac
Interactive Response Technology (IRT) systems - used to manage patient interactions and drug supplies during clinical trials - perform a range of functions for sponsors, drug depots, and investigative sites. Yet, they are typically viewed by sponsors as a "painful necessity" rather than as a welcome, invaluable tool. That perception exists because the underlying technology is outmoded, and the user's experience is stuck in the pre-Internet era. While established systems are "tried and true" in that they have supported thousands of clinical trials over the years, they can also be tired and cumbersome.
