Single-use or disposable biomanufacturing replaces stainless steel tanks, bioreactors, and plumbing with plastic, to provide flexibility, agility, and speed to the production of therapeutic proteins. A recent market study estimates demand for for Single Use Upstream Processing to grow at up to 15% per year through 2021, when demand will reach $3.7 billion.. As disposable processing worked […]

Process Control

Process analytical instruments (PAI) are used for monitoring, modeling, analyzing, and controlling manufacturing processes through timely measurements of critical process parameters with the goal of controlling process safety and optimization while maintaining product quality. These instruments have been used for some time in various manufacturing industries. Significant research and development has been done in past […]

Our first two articles reviewed the current state of the Bioprocessing Industry by observing the advancements and trends from a technology and end-market perspective. Here we will take a look at the industry from a regional, sector, and end-user perspective. As North America and Europe are the most established regional markets for bioprocessing, combined they […]

Mass Spectrometry Flasks

In our previous post we highlighted recent advancements within the mass spectrometry (MS) market. Key suppliers in the mass spec industry (i.e Thermo Fisher, Aglient, SCIEX, etc.) showcased their newest technologies at the ASMS Conference held in June and many formed partnerships to improve life science applications of mass spec. Our recently published 2018 Mass […]
