Podcast – Industrial Design Considerations for Auto Injectors
The design, development and manufacturing of a successful auto injector project requires not only the seamless collaboration between the biopharmaceutical company and key partners, but also robust design and manufacturing capabilities that can ultimately reflect the desired device characteristics. With industrial design often the initial starting point of a project, possessing a strong in-house industrial team can mean more efficient communication with production teams which can lead to faster prototyping and design verification.

Analytical Strategies for Ink Formulation
| By Malvern Instruments
Controlling the performance of an ink is a complex optimization challenge. Understanding how features of the system, the dispersed particle size in particular, impact stability and behavior during each stage of the printing process is crucial for effective formulation. This white paper offers practical guidance on using a range of analytical techniques, including rheology, and particle size and zeta potential measurement to generate the required knowledge.

Viruses and Viral Vaccines: Characterization by Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis
| By Malvern Instruments
NTA utilizes the properties of both light scattering and Brownian motion in order to obtain the particle size distribution of samples in liquid suspension. A laser beam is passed through the sample chamber, and the particles in suspension in the path of this beam scatter light in such a manner that they can easily be visualized via a 20x magnification microscope onto which is mounted a camera.

Quantifying Shear Thickening Behaviour Using the Power Law Model on a Rotational Rheometer
While most suspensions and polymer structured materials are shear thinning, some materials can also show shear thickening behavior where viscosity increases with increasing shear rate or shear stress. This phenomenon is also often referred to as dilatancy, and although this refers to a specific mechanism for shear thickening the terms are often used interchangeably.
