Report: BioSolve User Group Meeting 2015

It was great to see so many faces at the first Biopharm User Group meeting. More than 30 attendees joined us in Phildelphia on 17th & 18th September for what was a lively event, based on the real experiences of our users. Here are a

BioSolve Process: Powering Global Research

Ever since BioSolve Process was first introduced, our software has not only been helping companies improve the way they do business, but it has also been used to help generate academic research in process development by many of the leading innovators in the field. The

Biotech Trends in Japan: From Fashion to Cell Therapy

We recently attended the Interphex tradeshow in Osaka and observed some interesting trends. When we talk about “trends”, many people automatically think about fashion, and so it was at Interphex, where we noticed the latest trend in hospital nurse uniforms that featured cute cartoon designs.

The Irish eyes are smiling on continuous processing

Last month, Biopharm’s managing director, Andrew Sinclair, and Dr. Yuki Abe headed to Dublin, Ireland, for the Continuous Manufacturing in Biopharmaceuticals conference hosted by Informa Life Sciences. In conjunction with Jean-Francois Hamel from MIT, the Biopharm team led a pre-conference workshop entitled Implementing a Continuous

Continuous processing: Part 3

What’s happening in downstream processing? Welcome to the latest instalment of our continuous processing blog series. In Part 2 we considered the overall cost picture of the economics of continuous processing and touched upon the impact of perfusion versus fed batch – a theme we

The rise of the bioprocess industry in Japan

Last month, Biopharm joined hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors in attending Interphex Japan. The Tokyo-based tradeshow and conference covers the whole process of pharmaceuticals R&D and manufacturing. On the first day, Mark Bamforth, CEO of Gallus Pharmaceuticals, gave a keynote presentation on “The

Continuous processing: Part 2

Some biopharma companies have been running perfusion bioreactors in a continuous mode for several decades. The choice of whether to use continuous or not was dictated by the product, and little has been published on the economics of continuous perfusion processes. In today’s blog we

Continuous processing: Part 1

Over the next couple of blogs, we’d like to take a closer look at continuous processing, including the challenges associated with it, focusing on the cost drivers for perfusion versus fed batch, and the potential for continuous downstream processing. Continuous processing has increasingly been seen

Mab Manufacturing Today & Tomorrow

In conjunction with today’s launch of BioSolve Process 5, we have developed a whitepaper that demonstrates the significant savings that can be achieved by biopharma innovators in monoclonal antibody manufacture. The study used BioSolve Process to evaluate three different development scenarios: Current stainless steel technology
