- Primary Cell Culture: The game has changed! (pdf)
New tools, new approach. Seldom does a research tool appear that can change the way scientists approach, study, and answer biological questions. Such is the case with the emergence of normal primary cell culture systems. With a drive toward effective and efficient cell culture for basic research and biopharmaceutical production, advances in culture materials have rapidly developed. Among them, tissue/cell culture plating material, coatings and scaffolds, defined medium and reagent formulations (a movement away from undefined elements such as fetal bovine serum (FBS) or Bovine Pituitary Extract (BPE)), and the introduction of commercially available normal human and animal primary cell systems have emerged.
- Principal Drivers for Outsourcing (pdf)
Outsourced research services for pharmaceutical discovery and development have emerged as a viable and reliable model for bringing new drugs to market. With the typical investment of more than $800 million in development costs for each new drug, a well-coordinated partnership with contract research organizations (CROs) and other third party providers (TPPs) can deliver results that beat the conventional discovery and development research model in both time and expense.
