Today most medicines are produced biotechnologically. A new cleaning method developed at ACIB combines five purification steps and leads to an extremely facilitated, more economical and ecological manufacturing process. GRAZ, Austria, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven of the ten best-selling drugs in 2012 were biopharmaceuticals; biotechnology in pharmaceutical production is still growing. A severe problem is the cleaning of products; up to 80% of the total production costs are...

Xtalks presents an exciting live webinar on Tuesday October 29, 2013 at 11:00am EDT on current strategies for maximizing efficiency in the drug development process. Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) October 18, 2013 Microparticles are 100 – 1000 nm subcellular bodies released during apoptosis, cell injury, or cellular activation. Serum, plasma, synovial fluid, CSF, and other biofluid-derived circulating microparticles have been increasingly suggested as meaningful matrices for biomarker assay...

Engineering stem cells Before scientists and engineers can realize the dream of using stem cells to create replacements for worn out organs and battle damaged body parts, they'll have to develop ways to grow complex three-dimensional structures in large volumes and at costs that won't bankrupt health care systems. Researchers are now reporting advances in these areas by using gelatin-based microparticles to deliver growth factors to specific areas of embryoid bodies, aggregates of...

ASU bioengineering research produces design for new device to help detect diseases quickly and at lower costs Arizona State University researchers have demonstrated a way to dramatically simplify testing patients for infectious diseases and unhealthy protein levels. New testing instrumentation developed by Antonia Garcia and John Schneider promises to make the procedure less costly and produce results in less time. Current testing is slow and expensive because of the complications of working...

Researchers at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed microscopic polymer beads that can deliver an antioxidant enzyme made naturally by the body into the heart. Injecting the enzyme-containing particles into rats' hearts after a simulated heart attack reduced the number of dying cells and resulted in improved heart function days later. Michael Davis, PhD, is presenting the results Sunday evening at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in...

Remote controlled with a magnetic field, aggregates of plastic particles on a microchip function like stirrers and pumps Sometimes physicists resort to tried and trusted model-making tricks. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research, the University of Stuttgart and the Colorado School of Mines have constructed micromachines using the same trick that model makers use to get ships into a bottle where the masts and rigging of the sailing ship are not erected until it is in the...
