Biotechnology in Europe

The word biotechnology is a cross between the Greek words “bios” (everything to do with life) and “technikos” (involving human knowledge and skills). The OECD (the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development) defines biotechnology as “the application of scientific and engineering principles to the processing of materials by biological agents.” More simply, biotechnology is using living organisms to make useful products.

Enabling the Future of Cell & Gene Therapies through Non Proprietary Patient-Owned Data Collection

whitePaper | March 16, 2021

Cell and gene therapies have emerged as a new treatment paradigm, and with them has come the potential to alter the course of many rare diseases. In many cases, there is an opportunity to correct the underlying dysfunction with a one-time administration of a therapy and provide either a functional cure or a substantial improvement in health outcomes. In other cases, long term symptom relief will be the primary therapeutic objective. Some of these indications may require more than one dose to achieve continued symptom relief and scientists and companies are working on technologies that will enable the use of a repeat dose.

IoT To The Rescue For Biotech & Pharma Manufacturing

whitePaper | April 7, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) could not be timelier for biotech/pharma. With fierce cost pressures, the push for value-based outcomes, and the need for flexible manufacturing solutions, the IoT is the much-needed shot in the arm to bring about transformational change. Sensors, actuators, and devices (“things”) embedded in production equipment and networked through computer systems can generate an enormous amount of data. The data can be mined for insights and opportunities to drive production efficiency, automate monitoring and controlling functions, and enable flexible manufacturing systems.
