Elemental Quality Perspectives related to Chemically-Defined Media

Quality - Thumbs up When an out-of-specification (OOS) event is encountered, investigative teams often direct their initial focus on physical attributes of the production cycle. Sifting through temperature logs, calibration data, and personnel training records can only get you so far when pursuing a root cause analysis. An often-overlooked fact is that biologically-derived pharmaceutical drugs rely upon controlled chemical environments for both production and drug viability. Minute differences in both micronutrients and contaminants play a key role in mitigating OOS events, as well as optimizing yield and maintaining drug efficacy. To protect their investments and maximize profitability, pharmaceutical companies must incorporate chemistry quality testing beyond what their supply chain can typically support.
