Obsvervations and Trends of Interphex 2021

We attended Interphex in NYC as our second live show of the 2021 season. Interphex remains the “who’s who” in the bioprocessing world, with over 500 exhibitors and thousands of attendees.  Although a noticeably quieter show than in years past, it was still full of energy.  Many exhibitors we spoke with stated that the attendees they met were die-hard, had clear objectives and focused goals, and were determined to meet with their key suppliers. Similarly, we learned that most exhibitors and attendees plan to attend in the spring of 2022 despite this year’s show postponement.

Is There a Single-Use Solution for ADC Processes?

A Highly Demanding Process for ADCs What happens when an antibody is linked to a cytotoxic compound? You get an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), which is commonly used in cancer treatments. ADCs work by coupling an anticancer drug to an antibody that specifically targets a certain antigen on the target tumor.

Fusion Welding for Fluoropolymer Assemblies

Fusion Welding with Fluoropolymers: Building Stronger Bonds Typically, the weakest parts (and most likely failure points) of any custom assembly are the welded joints. But with fusion welding, that’s not the case. Savillex has developed proprietary, non-contact fusion welding equipment and techniques that can be used to build stronger, high-purity

Custom Part Design for New Semiconductor Gas Filters

Custom Parts for Semiconductor Gas Filtration Gas filtration is a critical step in the semiconductor manufacturing process. If gasses like ammonia and boron trichloride aren’t properly filtered, contaminants can cause defects to wafers during fabrication. Porvair is one of the world’s largest players in a semiconductor gas filtration market that
