Developments in Continuous Cell Culture
Article

Continuous cell culture is part of a trend in bioprocessing towards highly productive, streamlined, and interconnected unit operations. While continuous processing has a long history in various industries, regulatory concerns have stalled widespread adoption of continuous bioprocessing. That is beginning to change as the industry acclimates to regulators’ desire for risk- and science-based production decisions.

Practical Guidance for the Confident Application of Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Article

In this article, we provide practical guidance for the application of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), a core technique for studying the stability and higher order structure (HOS) of proteins. We explain how DSC works, and highlight good practice for ensuring optimal data quality. The interpretation and value of the resulting data is also discussed.
