10:00 am and 2:00 pm (EST)  
This technical webinar will focus on three key areas for supply chain assessment and will provide suggestions for mitigating the risks involved, including: 
  • Identification of high-, mid- and low-risk materials, challenges to testing raw materials, and root causes of contaminations, including review of a USDA study that tracked infectious virus from the source animal to other materials.
  • Highlighting of recent adventitious agents of concern and a review of the latest raw material lot release testing strategies to assist in detecting potential contaminants.
  • Examination of strategies used during raw material processing or manufacturing to remove/inactivate a wide array of microorganisms including mycoplasma and virus.

A New Automated System Designed for Ex-Vivo Expansion
of Autologous Cell Therapy Products  

Developed with leading cell therapy organisations, CellBase CT scales up existing manual cell culture processes in T-flasks, enabling manufacture of cell therapy products derived from a wide range of cell types, including hES, iPS, and adult stem cells.

TAP Biosystems (the new corporate identity of The Automation Partnership) provides advanced automation systems and services to improve productivity in life science research, development, and production.
Career Development
New Brunswick Scientific has paired up with Pall Life Sciences to offer a series of one-day bioprocessing forums designed to offer the newest techniques for improving quality and yield in drug development and production.

The traveling road shows expand New Brunswick’s repertoire of fermentor and bioreactor training programs, which range from intensive university-based wet-workshops to teach practical fermentor and bioreactor operation, to individual or group training programs held at your facility or New Brunswick Scientific’s in-house labs.
