Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Instant Access

Few would argue with the need for pharmaceutical businesses to follow safe and proven quality assurance procedures. To this end, companies have been operating traceability systems and keeping records founded on good manufacturing practice (GMP) and good distribution practice (GDP) for a number of years. More recently, as automated monitoring and recording systems have become more commonplace, 21 CFR Part 11 has been introduced and provides appropriate guidelines for the application of electronic record keeping and signatures. Effectively, 21 CFR Part 11 defines the criteria under which electronic records and electronic signatures are considered to be trustworthy and reliable. MHRA guidelines share many of the safeguards.

Temperature and humidity have always been important factors in the pharmaceutical industry, but never more so than now. Levels in key areas, such as laboratories, cold stores, chill rooms, incubators, test chambers, production processes and storage areas need to be regularly monitored and procedures put in place to establish corrective actions if they move outside pre-set limits. Documents, together with complete and comprehensive records, need to be kept and electronic systems need to comply with necessary guidelines.

Orthogonal Approaches for the Analysis of Protein Sequence and Post Translational Modifications of a Monoclonal Antibody

RSSL

Monoclonal antibodies are an important class of biopharmaceuticals. They are expressed from living cells and therefore, are subject to complex biochemical pathways. Not all of these pathways are fully understood and many are known to be sensitive to subtle environmental changes during production. These changes may affect the final biopharmaceutical sequence, structure and post-translational modifications. This is in addition to any changes that may occur during subsequent purification. This means that the final product from one batch may be subtly different from another batch. Furthermore, each batch is a heterogeneous mix of similar molecules. Analysis of the degree of batch-tobatch variation, and batch heterogeneity, is therefore, very important to establish in order to be confident that the drug is safe and effective for medicinal use.
