UK and European Biotechs - Partnering for Profit

The British biotech sector may be providing many globally-important technological answers, but it is also continuing to question how best to find and work with others in both discovery and development. No biotechnology company, however big, can completely go it alone. Getting together with US partners has often been the route for UK companies but as this article emphasises, there are wonderful opportunities in Europe and it is just as easy to cross the Channel as the Atlantic.

Whether their goal is technological, commercial, manufacturing or marketing know-how, partnerships are proving invaluable in the battle for biotech survival and added value. With an increasingly complex market, and with the time to achieve critical mass and gain entry to market continually shortening, I think it is inevitable that the search for appropriate alliances will continue to rise inexorably up the agenda. Despite its many strengths, this search is especially important for the UK biotech sector. While we in the UK are deservedly renowned for the innovative excellence of our basic ideas, it has also been known for others to get these ideas to market first and reap the rewards. Partnerships can help us to avoid this scenario.

Quality of Steel

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Steel quality is the summation of how well a steel meets its specified chemistry, the cleanliness of the steel or degree to which it is free of impurities or inclusion, homogeneity of the microstructure, grain/carbide size and in some instances if it meets the mechanical requirements for that particular steel. In the design and manufacture of tablet compression tooling, nothing is more important than the quality of the materials being used. The best manufacturing principals maintaining the tightest tolerances will result in tool failure if the initial material quality is poor. Material quality is the fundamental building block upon which all successive value added steps are laid. The majority of all tablet compression tooling is produced from steel and steel quality is the subject of this article.
