Different Types of Viral Vectors for Gene Delivery and How They Are Used

Viruses are appealing vectors for gene delivery because they have evolved over time to deliver nucleic acid directly to specific cells. The same traits that make viruses difficult to treat—their efficiency at targeting particular cells and their ability to avoid immunosurveillance—make them excellent candidates for gene delivery in both research and clinical settings. However, the [...]

What Can We Learn from Non-Touch Techniques for Aseptic Manufacturing?

Many people who work in the field of aseptic manufacturing may never have heard of aseptic non-touch technique (ANTT).

Parenteral Contract Manufacturers Design Efficient Processes to Ensure Compliant Products

The time, equipment, training, and cost required to create compliant parenteral products make outsourcing to parenteral contract manufacturers an attractive option for pharmaceutical companies. Because parenteral drugs bypass the body’s natural defenses, they must be totally sterile upon delivery, which means they must be sterilized completely during manufacture or processed aseptically from beginning to end. [...]
