I recently covered the BIO International meeting in Washington, DC and came away with a number of vivid impressions. And while none of my observations were unexpected, I guess I was surprised by how predictable everything was. Now, I'm not implying that BIO's meeting was predictable, but that the state of the industry is not escaping the stagnation it has been in for the past several years.

Everyone is still too focused on deals, and they are missing far too many opportunities to advance technologies and get products to the patients who need them. Lawyers and investment firms are making tons of money off these deals, and apparently the compensation programs for top company executives are making them seek deals whether they make sense or not.

Xcellerex Introduces the 10 Liter XDR‐10 Single Use Bioreactor

Xcellerex, Inc. introduces the XDR‐10, a new 10 L version of its XDR line of single‐use bioreactors. The XDR‐10 shares the same robust design and vessel geometries as larger XDR models, providing seamless linear scale‐up from 10 L to 2000 L. The fully integrated GMP system also features industrial‐grade instrumentation and controls to deliver consistent process performance across the entire product family. Because the entire XDR line uses the same product contact materials, qualification is greatly simplified as a process is scaled‐up from benchtop to production. Primary application areas include process development, seed trains, and production process modeling. For more information, please visit www.xcellerex.com.
