The BioPharmaSpec Approach”: Mass Spectrometry Based Host Cell Protein Identification and Quantitation

1. Introduction

As part of the development of any biopharmaceutical product, the impurities present must be examined, minimized and where possible characterized (1). These impurities fall into two broad categories: product-related impurities (derived specifically from the drug product itself) and process-related impurities (derived from material associated with the production, processing or purification of the sample). Host cell proteins (HCPs) are process-related impurities that require specific analysis due to the multitude of naturally occurring proteins expressed in the production cell line.

Royal Berkshire Hospital innovates with Archer data automation

Reading UK, 03 March 2022: As an exemplar for developing the ‘Digital Hospital’ and active clinical research organisation, the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust (RBFT) has given the greenlight to IgniteData’s data automation platform, Archer, for use in clinical trials. This is the first time the Trust has introduced SMART on FHIR technology, specifically backing Archer because it will reduce the need for staff to key in patient research data manually, thereby eliminating errors, saving time and money and increasing capacity for more patient recruitment.

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring

Dycem

A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
