We visited Mercks M Lab Collaboration Centre
 
In July I visited Merck’s Massachusetts M Lab™ Collaboration Center. Imagine a “playground” where scientists and engineers can test their ideas in a flexible non-GMP environment – this is where companies can prototype workflows, troubleshoot processes, and improve efficiencies in collaboration with Merck’s technical experts. We created a short film that embodies this unique concept.
 
 
 
Laser diffraction and automated imaging: complementary techniques for nasal spray development
 
Together the techniques of laser diffraction and automated particle imaging support the fast, cost-effective development of nasal spray products, simultaneously providing the data required for regulatory compliance; this article examines their application.
 
 
 
Characterization of biopharmaceutical stability with Differential Scanning Calorimetry
 
The intention of this whitepaper is to explain how DSC is used to characterize the thermal stability of protein biopharmaceuticals (primarily antibodies) during the selection of drug candidates to advance into development.
