Chemineer, Inc. offers the Greerco Pipeline Mixer for continuous high-speed, high-shear processing for applications involving homogenization, mixing, dispersion and emulsion.
It is no secret that the transition to single-use technology for biopharmaceutical applications is often disruptive. Yet, as the industry continues to see the proven benefits of integrating these technologies, and in some cases fully transitioning to them, the paradigm shift that happened in the upstream is making its way into the downstream.
The Chemineer MR Agitator is well-suited for a variety of mixing applications in the chemical, biodiesel/ethanol, pharmaceutical, water and general fluid processing industries.
The FDA is approving Perjeta, a drug proven to shrink tumors before surgery in breast cancer patients. CBS News contributor Dr. David Agus joins the "CBS This Morning" co-hosts to discuss the promising drug and what it could mean for cancer patients.
Federal prosecutors in Milwaukee sued a Kentucky-based pharmaceuticals services firm on Friday, accusing PharMerica Corp. of illegally dispensing addictive narcotics without proper oversight. The lawsuit was prompted by a 2009 whistleblower report.

Rexam serves a number of markets including the beverage, personal care, healthcare and food markets. Production and process control has never been more advanced at Rexam-Berlin than it is right now. Nor has the value of such control as a decision-making tool ever been more demonstrable.
PACKAGING EQUIPMENT: Omega Design Corporation’s bottle unscrambler features patented rotary pockets and provides speed, precision and expandability.
PACKAGING EQUIPMENT: NJM Packaging’s tablet counter is a versatile servo driven counting and filling system for solid-dose pharmaceuticals.
COMBUSTIBLE DUST & EXPLOSION PROTECTION: The safe removal of residual dust is a critical element when processing solids. It’s also needed throughout production, from active ingredient handling through packaging and shipment of finished product.
The governor and other officials are celebrating the official opening of a plant in Opelika that makes vitamins, minerals and dietary supplements. The officials are scheduled to join executives of Pharmavite for the grand opening of the manufacturing facilit.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced the idea of Quality by Design (QbD) in 2004 as part of the Process Analytical Technology Guidance. The purpose was to design quality into the product and process rather than try to test quality into the product at the end on the production line.
Under the Quality by Deign paradigm, new pharma product must be correctly designed to take into account the disease and its impact on the patient, the patient population, the drug properties, the preferred route of administration and the requirements of the organization manufacturing the product.
If you were to liken the interest in single-use and disposable technologies in the pharmaceutical industry to terms we are familiar with when talking about hot web topics, you might say they have been “trending” for several years, or perhaps they have gone “viral.”
The CHEM SHOW is where professionals involved in the processing of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foods, and other process industries come to find solutions to their process applications. Thousands of CPI professionals that are involved in mixing, blending, heating, cooling, filtering or drying materials come to the CHEM SHOW to see all the latest technologies and innovations being showcased by more than 300 exhibiting companies.
Pressures to reduce staff levels for onsite operations coupled with the increasing sophistication and expense of automation and control equipment have led to growing trend to use modular structures to house and protect sensitive process and automation controls.
Joseph Jimenez, the CEO of pharmaceutical giant Novartis, discusses the business strategies and operating practices that have led his company to success in developing breakthrough drugs, keeping the company one step ahead of its competitors.
The safe removal of residual dust is a critical element when processing solids.

A central dust collection system removes particulate, increases safety, and reduces maintenance costs.
The illegal pharmaceutical trade has grown rapidly over the past several years with much of the profits funding international organized criminal operations. The illegal drugs are eating into legitimate pharmaceutical industry profits while posing a real threat to public health.
Counterfeit products in the pharmaceutical industry pose a severe health risk and cause enormous economic damage. Is the drug needed an original or has it been forged? What path did it take through the distribution chain until it finally reached the pharmacy where it was handed out to the patient?
Manufacturers are applying new methods and technologies that not only accomplish the main objective of safety, but also provide opportunities for process optimization. These solutions allow companies to offer much-needed reassurance to consumers and meet regulations while also improving their methodologies.
After NBC News' Andrea Canning exposed herself to controlled levels of hormone disruptors, the tests are back, revealing how this exposure impacted the levels of these chemicals in her own body. Though FDA has labeled these chemicals safe in small quantities, scientists have differing opinions.
NBC News' Andrea Canning invites a team of scientists into her home to evaluate common household items like soaps and canned foods to determine which products may contain hormone disruptors. Though FDA has labeled these chemicals safe in small quantities, some scientists aren't so sure.
The traditional clean room facilities of the 20th century are being rapidly replaced with advanced barrier based technology filling facilities. This technological evolution is dramatically reducing the risk of product contamination and risk of infection to patients.
