White Paper: MedTech Supply Chain Strategies

Abstract

In today's evolving regulatory environment, supply chain transparency is a game-changing differentiator. Collaborating with manufacturing partners who have excellent supplier relationships and a deep understanding of materials can revolutionize the product development process. Even after a robust supply chain has been established, there are still hurdles in commercializing a medical device.

6 Filtration Challenges in Downstream Biopharmaceutical Production

In Brief

Membranes and membrane processes are efficient filtration tools in the manufacturing of biopharmaceutical products. These tools continue to evolve in response to new therapies and processing methods. The membranes used in separation and purification are beginning to play an even more important role as market demand for monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and other gene and cell culture therapies have expanded in recent years. The global mAb therapeutics market is projected to grow from almost US$ 95.6 billion in 2017 to US$ 174.2 billion by 2026.

Single-Use Endoscopes: A Trend towards Better Patient Safety

In Brief

Design continues to save lives. The disposability designed into single-use medical devices such as surgical masks, syringes, and suction catheters has reduced the risk of infection and boosted patient safety. The widening trend of single-use devices such as these has helped to make a good case for using disposable flexible endoscopes in many surgical and non-surgical procedures.

5 Things to Keep in Mind When Trying to Reverse Engineer Adhesive

In Brief:

The process of reverse engineering is demanding work: an analyst initially works with limited information about a product and uses that information to analyze it to discover its composition. When reverse engineering is performed for a product that has a chemical composition--as compared to a machine or a software program--the process is also referred to as deformulation. The major and minor components of the composition are separated and broken down in order to be identified.
