  1. A Solution To Ensure Quantity & Quality Of The Excipient Polysorbate-80 In Drug Formulations
    6/10/2019

    Polysorbate-80 (PS-80) is a surfactant commonly used as an excipient to improve API stability. However, degradation of PS-80 can lead to decreased drug potency or stability, and there is inconsistency in the quality and composition of PS-80 provided by different vendors.

  2. Rapid Sterility Testing: Viral And Gene Therapy Applications
    10/29/2019

    For most cell and gene therapy products, a 14-day testing period for sterility is too long and hinders the timely release of products with a short shelf life or a small window for release to the clinic. Download this white paper to learn how validated, rapid sterility methods better address the needs of cell and gene therapy clients, with faster turnaround and increased throughput.
