  • Considerations For Bioreactor Process Development And Scale-Up For Transient Transfection-Based Lentivirus Production In Suspension

    Several challenges are associated with use of an adherent platform for lentivirus production. This white paper describes considerations for suspension-based, transient transfection bioreactor process development and scale-up of lentivirus production. We will describe the approach taken for process development.

  • Reducing The Risk During Cell And Gene Therapy Development And Manufacturing

    While these new modalities are generating significant excitement among patients and caregivers, cell and gene therapy manufacturers are experiencing growing pains. The rapid growth and continued momentum of the industry has led to the issuance of new guidance. In this article we share insights for navigating within a novel and complex regulatory environment, mitigating risks posed by raw materials and implementing proper risk assessments during manufacturing.

  • Local Lab Normalization

    Local laboratory data normalization is a routine process in clinical trial data management. However, even with standardized collection and transport procedures across the laboratories there is often variability to account for. This paper highlights the modern need for access to local laboratory data in near real time.

  • Single-Use Fluoropolymer Bags For Efficient High-Density Cell Banking

    This paper explains how single-use bags perform during freezing, storage, and thawing steps and why they present an efficient alternative to vials in a variety of upstream cell banking applications.

  • A Global Observational Registry Of Adult Patients With Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH)

    Clinical development service provider efficiently and strategically manages a global rare disease registry with rolling start-up, including mandated annual data collection and reporting.

  • How To Speed Up Cell And Gene Therapy Treatments For Patients, Reduce The Number Of Manual Operations And Eliminate Operator Errors

    This white paper addresses the unique production problems of cell and gene therapy and explains how a manufacturing execution system (MES) can address them. It provides guidance on how to select an MES and a case study of two CAR-T therapy companies scaling up with and without an MES.

  • Robust Field Guide To qPCR

    qPCR remains the gold standard for validation of microarray and next generation sequencing data and the method of choice for both clinical and basic research labs for a wide range of applications. However, there remains general concern about the production of data that truly reflects the tested experimental conditions. We have developed a comprehensive guide to performing the ultimate qPCR experiment. The following is a snapshot of the critical steps needed to achieve excellent results.
