Niagara Falls, Canada-based ColdBlock Technologies has developed an innovative product that performs sample digestion for trace metals analysis with significant improvements in speed, safety and cost over existing technologies.
Rather than the “traditional” method that involves heating digestion tubes in graphite blocks with conducted heat, ColdBlock’s solution uses focused, short wave infrared radiation (FSWIR) to heat sample solutions.
Can Bioprocessing Evolve to Meet a Rapidly Changing World? It’s a brave new world for the bioprocessing industry as groundbreaking new technologies - like cellular therapies and mRNA vaccines - emerge and hit the market at a blinding pace. However, behind every one of these technological triumphs is complex manufacturing
By Drew Carlson, Applications Development Manager – Life Sciences Conversations and Collaboration Advanced Therapies Week, organized by Phacilitate, certainly gets a gold star from many attendees regarding their chosen location of Miami Beach.

The bioprocess industry isn’t immune to supply chain challenges These pandemic times have stretched global supply chains to their breaking point. And as a result, the bioprocess industry has been attempting to overcome several major hurdles. Chief among them is a shortage in key components like piping, filters, diaphragms and
Understanding the impact of container extractables When choosing containers for applications such as critical drug substances, cell therapies and regenerative medicines, it’s important to consider the effect extractables can have on products. Extractables are the organic or inorganic chemical compounds released from container systems when faced with aggressive laboratory conditions
Balancing Container Integrity and Closure Torque Applications like cell therapies and regenerative medicines demand absolute container integrity to ensure product sterility. To that end, bottles, vials, sample jars, and other rigid containers tend to be the natural choice due to their durable construction and strong closure systems. However, another key
By Eric Isberg, VP of Life Sciences 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
