Intelligent Software Serving Control and Supervision of Fermentation Processes

Fermentation processes are becoming increasingly sophisticated. In order to automate the entire operation and to obtain complete traceability of the process, bioinformatics are implemented within the fermentation equipment and represent an important part of it. 'Sequences' are functions of the 'Rhapsody' software and represent a series of commands designed to control a fermentor without operator intervention. They perform a collection of actions and decisions that an operator would perform if running the fermentor manually, 24-hours-a-day. Sequential programming enables automatic configuration of control loops and supervision during the fermentation process. Before designing sequences, it is necessary to define the fermentation strategy. This strategy may be simplified or elaborated to suit the requirements of any fermentation process.

Breakthrough in the global battle against polio: AJ Vaccines granted WHO prequalification for new polio vaccine

Despite ongoing concerted efforts to eradicate polio, it appears to be on the rise again with more cases registered in 2019 than 2018. Looking ahead, AJ Vaccines’ dose sparing technology provides a significant opportunity to expand supply, with the potential to deliver up to 100 million doses over the five-year period 2020-2024 to help meet the currently unmet global demand for inactivated polio vaccines.
