Protein Progression

Microarrays offer a well-established bioanalytical format for high-throughput studies of many different biomolecules. In the field of peptide and protein microarrays, great progress has been achieved in immobilising large numbers of native target molecules, such as recombinant human proteins or peptide libraries to microarray surfaces. With an increased content at high quality, protein and peptide microarrays offer new possibilities in proteomics and pharmaceutical R&D. Simultaneously, label-free sensing has evolved from highly sophisticated, but low-throughput, to powerful multiplexed screening tools. The combination of these advancements opens a new field of bioanalytics.

Analysis at a Glance

Proteins are involved in almost any process of a living cell. Therefore, proteomics is a key discipline of modern life sciences today. Furthermore, protein-protein interactions of human cells (the so-called human interactome, see Figure 1) and the interactions of proteins with other biomolecules are key for understanding any physiological process and manipulating it (eg, by a pharmaceutical or biopharmaceutical drug).

Protein scientists have developed different bioanalytical approaches based on proteins immobilised in a microarray format. Here, the focus lies on protein microarrays representing a set of species-specific (in most cases, human) proteins to study the binding of a specific molecule or sample to these target proteins in a single assay. The trend is towards a fraction up to the complete genetically encoded proteome.

Detecting Integrity Breaches in a range of Pharmaceutical Blister Package Types using Sepha VisionScan

Sepha Limited

Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents. Compared to bulk packaging, blister packs offer improved product integrity, tamper evidence and reduce the likelihood of misuse. Packs can be composed of either a thermoformed polymer or cold formed aluminium tray, with a number of individual pockets to hold the product. After the tablets or capsules are placed in the pockets, the packs are heat sealed with a paper or foil laminate sheet. These various stages can be completed separately or integrated into a single form, fill and seal process. There is a risk of microbial containment or degradation of the contents if any defects are present in the packaging. Such defects can take the form of rips or pinholes in the tray, or lid materials, faulty seals and channel leaks between pockets.
