  • Imaging And Analysis Of A High Density Cell Migration Assay
    Imaging And Analysis Of A High Density Cell Migration Assay

    Complex biological or environmental signaling events can lead to cell migration, the movement of cells from one location to another. The migration of cells commonly occurs during both normal biological processes such as the development of an organism or marking pathological events such as cancer metastasis. Automated processes in higher density formats improve throughput greatly increasing the usefulness of performing migration assays at a larger scale. This study evaluated the use of a high density cell exclusion assay in 384- well format for investigation of cell migration using a cell line stably expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP).

  • Getting The Most Out Of Your Viral Clearance Study

    By John Zehmer, PhD, Senior Scientist and Study Director at BioReliance

    Conducting a viral clearance study is an important step on the road toward getting your biomolecule into the clinic and on its way to becoming a drug. However, since most companies do not have the systems in place to support a regulated virological study of this kind, this will likely mean engaging a contract research organization (CRO) as a partner. The keys to meeting your goals are solid planning and good communication between your group and your CRO partner. This article provides a high-level review of these processes and will aid in planning for a successful study.

  • Tools for the Design of Vaccines to Help Reduce Clinical Failure

    If you are involved in the pharma industry, then you are interested in saving lives. In the area of preventative medicine, therapeutic vaccines have proven to have a tremendous impact on the ability to save millions of lives. Similar to pharmaceuticals, vaccine development can take over 10 years and less than 10 percent of candidates reach commercialization. Reducing the cost of failure and increasing the chances of clinical success for vaccines is beneficial to both the pharma industry and those being treated for or protected from disease.

  • Patheon Surfs Outsourcing Waves And Scoops Up Gallus Along The Way

    Jim Mullen, CEO of Patheon parent company DPx Holdings B.V., is at it again.

    On the heels of my three-part series with Mullen on the details behind the springtime merger of his company and the pharmaceutical products division of Royal DSM, he has made his next move.

    This time it is a strategic entrée into the U.S.-based market for biologics services via an acquisition of privately held Gallus BioPharmaceuticals. With Gallus, Patheon adds new capabilities at well-established sites with name-brand clientele, in St. Louis, Mo. and Princeton, N.J., to its global locations in Groningen, the Netherlands and Brisbane, Australia.
