Oral Liquid Dispensation:
Technology Evolution

One of the most common ways of dispensing a liquid medicine has been the spoon throughout history; this will inevitably continue for some time. Spoons in Europe commonly come in three sizes: coffee size (5ml), dessert size (10ml) and soup size (15ml). Spoons were introduced to French tables during the fourteenth century but without any standard volume; the different recognised sizes were defined later.

The origin of using spoons for medicine dispensation seems to be the desire to achieve consistent volume with an everyday utensil. The purpose of this article is not to give a detailed history of spoons, but simply to note that even now we are still using a very old method for medicine dispensation.

FROM THE SPOON TO THE SYRINGE

The main benefit of the spoon for the pharmaceutical industry is the simplicity of the device, adding no additional cost for product development, device manufacturing or specific packaging. Furthermore, the advantage for patients is...

Delivering Fit For Purpose Biomanufacturing CHO Cell Lines

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

The challenge during mammalian cell line development is to identify and isolate stable, high expressing cell lines producing product with the appropriate critical product quality attributes rapidly, reproducibly and with relative ease. Obtaining a host cell line that inherently exhibits desirable biomanufacturing attributes can therefore have a significantly positive effect on the identification of recombinant cell lines with desired traits during cell line development screens. In this study, we demonstrate that it is possible to exploit intrinsic heterogeneity within host cell populations and identify host cell lines which are more “fit for purpose”.
