Executive Q&A: Keys to Cultural Integration

As published in Pharma's Almanac Q1 2017.

Why is cultural integration following a merger so important to the success of the newly formed entity?

The impact on employee morale and turnover can be painfully high during and after a merger, and repairing it can be nearly impossible. If cultural integration doesn't happen, companies see significant and costly consequences.

Editorial: Supporting the Pharma Industry Small Business Growth Engine

As published in Pharma's Almanac Q1 2017.

Small and medium-sized companies generate
greater than two-thirds of the clinical candidates
in the pharma and biotech industry drug pipeline.
They often, however, lack the knowledge and
resources required to take a new medicine from
the lab to the market and need support
from CDMOs that offer integrated, tailored,
customized solutions and personalized
technical support.

Antibiotic Potency Testing: The Methods - Part 2

Using the Turbidimetric Method

In part one of this blog series, we discussed Antibiotic Potency Testing using the Diffusion (Cylinder-Plate) method.

Antibiotic potency assays using microbiological methods are required by both the European and United States Pharmacopoeia for some antibiotic products. Physicochemical methods, such as immunological assays and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) have become commonplace for determining the concentration of API and for the concomitant determination of Assay and impurities. However, microbiological assays provide a true measure of how effectively an antibiotic kills or inhibits a target microorganism at a specified concentration.

    Engineering abuse-deterrent properties into prescription forms of drugs with abuse potential has become a primary strategy for abuse prevention.
