A Paradigm Shift in Data Monitoring

The clinical trials industry is changing, along with the management of trial data. Where once it would take weeks to see trial results, it is now possible to view data in real time directly from eSource platforms and mobile devices. Electronic data capture remains a fundamental part of data collection, with Big Data, artificial intelligence, patient centricity, new technologies, and machine learning being the current industry buzzwords. For those working in the industry, it can be a challenge to stay on top of the continuously advancing data management world. To address this, The Society for Clinical Data Management (SCDM) recently published a new whitepaper on the evolution of clinical data management (CDM) to clinical data science (CDS).

What is Clinical Data Science?

The SCDM defines CDS as “the strategic discipline enabling data driven Clinical Research approaches and ensuring subject protection as well as the reliability and credibility of trial results. Clinical Data Science encompasses processes, domain expertise, technologies, data analytics and Good Clinical Data Management Practices essential to prompt decision making throughout the life cycle of Clinical Research”.

Microalgae Culture Using the DASGIP® PBR4 Module for Illumination with a New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 310 Stirred-tank Bioreactor


The number of bioprocess applications for microalgae has increased in recent years, particularly in the fi eld of biofuel production. The combination of the New Brunswick CelliGen 310 stirred-tank bioreactor and the DASGIP LED Illumination System creates a bioreactor setup which is capable of supporting high density microalgal growth. Using the stand-alone Eppendorf DASGIP PBR4 Module, LED illumination spectra and intensities can be controlled for optimal support of all types of chlorophylls and carotenoids. For this study in which high density culture of up to 1.5 x 107 cells/mL was achieved, the unicellular freshwater alga, Dunaliella tertiolecta, was used.
