Lean Machine

Pharmaceutical manufacturing costs the industry approximately $90 billion each year and represents twice the expenditure of R&D (1).

Eroding profit margins from stiff competition, increasing product defects, and the FDA’s focus on a ‘quality by design model’ has led the industry to reevaluate manufacturing efficiency (1,3). The industry has recently begun adopting both lean manufacturing and Six Sigma to achieve the efficiency and quality gains achieved by other industries (4-6).

PROTEIN:PROTEIN INTERACTION ANALYSIS

IBA GmbH

Groth et al., 2007 and Jasencakova et al., 2010 Protein:protein-interactions (PPI) govern almost all important processes in living organisms. Thus, their rapid and accurate determination and investigation is a major challenge in life sciences. The extremely efficient and fast One-STrEP (Twin-Strep) system is suitable for the isolation of functional protein complexes and subsequent mass spectrometry analysis leads to the identification of protein complex components (Junttila et al., 2005) as it is shown in the following studies.
