Considering Human Factors

The healthcare market is experiencing a paradigm shift as patients are being encouraged to take greater control of their own treatment therapies, primarily through self-administered injection devices. Concurrently, biologics are becoming increasingly prevalent, which, due to their large volume and high viscosity, have proved challenging for traditional self-injection systems.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies have responded with an increased focus on wearable injection devices for subcutaneous drug delivery, often citing ease of use and patient centricity as the primary advantages over traditional syringes or infusion pumps. However, developing safe drug delivery systems that are user-friendly and encourage patient adherence to treatment routines entail a number of significant challenges. These challenges are further compounded when it comes to self-administration devices for situations where there is no healthcare professional present.

Accelerating the Time from DNA to Material

Merck

Cell line development is a critical step in upstream process development for monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Unfortunately, the search for the bestproducing clone can be labor- and resource-intensive and is often compared with looking for a needle in a haystack. Cells must first be engineered to produce the biologic of interest and the cell line generated from a high producing clone must deliver a sufficiently high titer to support clinical studies, and ultimately commercialization of the therapeutic.
