  • Implementing Next-Generation Laboratory Informatics
    Implementing Next-Generation Laboratory Informatics

    Electronic Lab Notebooks are a key component of an electronic lab environment that helps scientists execute faster, more informed, high-quality science. It’s a vision scientists have talked about for decades.

  • Fully Automated Single-Use Bioreactor System For High Throughput Fed-Batch Culture
    Fully Automated Single-Use Bioreactor System For High Throughput Fed-Batch Culture

    Fed-batch culture is the commonly adopted biologicals manufacturing method used in many biopharmaceutical companies as it can generate gram/litre amounts of protein-based therapeutics. However, to obtain the maximum production of therapeutic proteins requires the optimum formulation of culture media and feeds, as well as the correct bioprocess parameters. 

  • LIMS Allows For Future Growth Of Medical Diagnostic Company
    LIMS Allows For Future Growth Of Medical Diagnostic Company

    A startup medical diagnostics company specializing in tests that identify and characterize tumor cells in blood samples chose to implement a cloud-hosted Core LIMS in their laboratories to  support anticipated future growth. The diagnostics company decided that they did not want to rely on the vendor’s services, and therefore asked Core Informatics to recommend a quality informatics consultant to support the implementation. Core Informatics referred the diagnostics company to Astrix Technology Group for development and implementation services, as Astrix’s core technical team has been trained by Core Informatics experts, and Astrix has worked alongside Core Informatics on many implementation projects.

  • Academic Institutions And Regulatory Compliance In The Labs: Why It Matters
    Academic Institutions And Regulatory Compliance In The Labs: Why It Matters

    Major research institutions and academic centers operate in an increasingly complex global network of scientific collaborators. In recent years, there has been a rising number of partnerships between non-profit research institutes and pharma, driven by cuts to academic research budgets, waning pipelines, and the pharma industry’s emphasis on open innovation. In mid-2015, for example, GSK teamed up with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to form a research institute and a company dedicated to finding a cure for HIV and AIDS.

  • LIMS Selection For A Global CRO, On An Accelerated Timeline

    In this case Astrix supported a leading global pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device contract research organization (CRO) in a major effort to select a commercial LIMS system that would meet their requirements

  • When The Chemistry Is Right: Controlling Inert Gases
    When The Chemistry Is Right: Controlling Inert Gases

    Proportional valve technology in process automation offers a great a deal of flexibility and produces high-quality control results.  A complete system supplied by Festo and installed in Boehringer Ingelheim's new technical centre demonstrates the performance that modern pneumatics can deliver.  The project was developed in close communication between the Festo team and automation experts from the pharmaceutical company, allowing it to move forward quickly.

  • Vertex Pharmaceuticals: Document Management Strategies For R&D
    Vertex Pharmaceuticals: Document Management Strategies For R&D

    Based out of South Boston, MA, with additional research programs in the UK and Canada, Vertex Pharmaceuticals has spent the past 25 years working to improve the lives of patients with serious diseases.

  • Important Considerations For Designers At Reviewing Bearing Systems with Linear
    Important Considerations For Designers At Reviewing Bearing Systems with Linear

    The majority of electro-mechanical axis utilise extruded aluminium profile in a range of sizes with a single guide rail and bearing arrangement driven by an electric motor through a belt or ball screw arrangement. There are physical limitations to the forces such a system can accurately and reliably guide. This paper explores some alternative design arrangements to cope with higher load applications and identifies design considerations observed during the development of a Festo high load, twin rail system.
