Download Microengineering in Biotechnology by Douglas Chinn (auth.), Michael P. Hughes, Kai F. Hoettges PDF

By Douglas Chinn (auth.), Michael P. Hughes, Kai F. Hoettges (eds.)

Microelectronic engineering has revolutionized electronics, offering new, quicker and less expensive methods of doing issues – and now an analogous expertise is being utilized to biotechnology and molecular biology. As pattern quantity is decreased, response pace and detector sensitivity are elevated whereas pattern and reagent specifications and machine expense are diminished. Microelectronic engineering offers the potential of bench-top models of enormous and costly gear similar to stream cytometry, or novel ones that take advantage of actual phenomena at the micron scale, corresponding to dielectrophoresis for cellphone analysis.

In Microengineering in Biotechnology, specialists within the box give a contribution chapters aimed toward instilling within the reader a operating realizing of the equipment underlying microengineering and the capacity wherein such tools can be utilized for more than a few analytical strategies. It describes the equipment through which microengineered units should be outfitted to accomplish a few purposes and considers how the sector may well development by means of studying a few extra complicated lab on a chip units that have nice capability within the development of ways during which molecular biology is played. As a quantity within the hugely winning Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence, this paintings offers the type of special description and implementation recommendation that's the most important for purchasing optimum results.

Cutting-edge but easy-to-use, Microengineering in Biotechnology serves as a reference advisor for sensible microengineering ideas and as a direction into the improvement of latest units for organic functions so one can enhance the promising union of molecular and mobile biology with microelectronics.

Download Current Trends in Monoclonal Antibody Development and by Wayne R. Gombotz, Steven J. Shire (auth.), Steven J. Shire, PDF

By Wayne R. Gombotz, Steven J. Shire (auth.), Steven J. Shire, Wayne Gombotz, Karoline Bechtold-Peters, James Andya (eds.)

Monoclonal antibodies signify one of many quickest growing to be components of latest drug improvement in the pharmaceutical undefined. numerous blockbuster items were licensed during the last a number of years together with Rituxan, Remicade, Avastin, Humira, and Herceptin. additionally, over three hundred new medicines are at present in scientific trials. With either huge, demonstrated biotechnology businesses and small start-ups focused on the advance of this significant type of molecules, monoclonal antibodies items becomes more and more frequent over the subsequent decade.

Recently the regulatory overview of monoclonal antibodies has been moved from middle for Biologics and learn to the guts for Drug overview and study (CDER) department of the U.S. meals and Drug management. it's expected that CDER will anticipate a definite minimum quantity of information to be supplied as extra of those items go through the regulatory pipeline. Current tendencies in Monoclonal Antibody improvement and Manufacturing will supply readers with an realizing of what's at present being performed within the to enhance, manufacture, and liberate monoclonal antibody items and what's going to be required for a profitable regulatory submission.

Download Bioreaction Engineering Principles by Jens Nielsen, John Villadsen, Gunnar Lidén PDF

By Jens Nielsen, John Villadsen, Gunnar Lidén

The current textual content is an entire revision of the 2d version from 2003 of the publication with an identical identify. In reputation of the quick velocity at which biotechnology is relocating now we have rewritten a number of chapters to incorporate new clinical growth within the box from 2000 to 2010. extra very important we've replaced the point of interest of the booklet to aid its use, not just in universities, but in addition as a consultant to layout new techniques and kit within the bio-industry. a brand new bankruptcy has been integrated at the clients of the bio-refinery to switch the various oil- and gasoline established methods for construction of specially bulk chemical substances. This bankruptcy additionally serves to make scholars in Chemical Engineering and within the Bio-Sciences keen about the total learn box. As in earlier variants we are hoping that the e-book can be utilized as textbook for sessions, even on the undergraduate point, the place chemical engineering scholars come to paintings part by way of aspect with scholars from biochemistry and microbiology. to aid the chemical engineering scholars bankruptcy 1 incorporates a short evaluate of crucial elements of microbial metabolism. In our opinion this evaluate is enough to comprehend microbial body structure at a sufficiently excessive point to benefit from the remainder of the booklet. Likewise the bio-students should not beaten by means of arithmetic, yet because the target of the e-book is to coach quantitative strategy research and method layout at a hands-on point a few arithmetic and version research is required. we are hoping that the approximately a hundred particular examples and textual content notes, including many instructive difficulties should be adequate to demonstrate how version research is used, additionally in Bio-reaction Engineering.
