This video features an interview with Erik Klijn, Senior Data Analytics Lead, at Janssen. During which he discusses the deployment of an OSIsoft PI system to conduct advanced analytics in biopharma manufacturing. This includes an application where the PI system is used to analyze the impact of raw materials on bioreactor performance.
This video, which has 5,000+ views, was produced by the U.S. FDA to explain the concept of interchangeability. The video features an interview with Leah Christl, Ph.D., former Associate Director for Therapeutic Biologics and lead of the Office of New Drugs (OND) Therapeutic Biologics and Biosimilars staff at FDA CDER.
This video, which has 10,000+ views, was produced by the U.S. FDA to address the question of "What are biosimilar products?" The video features an interview with Leah Christl, Ph.D., former Associate Director for Therapeutic Biologics and lead of the Office of New Drugs (OND) Therapeutic Biologics and Biosimilars staff at FDA CDER.
In this video, Kristin O'Neill of Merck & Co. describes how in a PD environment the OSIsoft PI System tracks both bioreactor controller data and automated sampling system data. Merck scientists no longer have to open up their notebooks when they want to compare sample analysis against bioreactor information.
This video, by the AIChE Academy, demonstrates the three regimes of gas mixing in a bioreactor; Flooded, Dispersed, and Recirculation and the methods used to achieve each.
This video, which has 18,000+ views, demonstrates how to prepare an ultralight foam from cross linked gelatin, which can be used to keep cells alive for up to a week at room temperature. No incubator, CO2, dry ice or liquid nitrogen required. The material is easy to make and prepare and the method works for both adherent and suspension cells.

We have personal computing, why not personal biotech? That's the question biologist Ellen Jorgensen and her colleagues asked themselves before opening Genspace, a nonprofit DIYbio lab in Brooklyn devoted to citizen science, where amateurs can go and tinker with biotechnology. Far from being a sinister Frankenstein's lab (as some imagined it), Genspace offers a long list of fun, creative and practical uses for DIYbio.
Each of our bodies is utterly unique, which is a lovely thought until it comes to treating an illness -- when every body reacts differently, often unpredictably, to standard treatment. Tissue engineer Nina Tandon talks about a possible solution: Using pluripotent stem cells to make personalized models of organs on which to test new drugs and treatments, and storing them on computer chips. (Call it extremely personalized medicine.)
Calling them "our bodies' own repair kits," Susan Solomon advocates research using lab-grown stem cells. By growing individual pluripotent stem cell lines, her team creates testbeds that could accelerate research into curing diseases -- and perhaps lead to individualized treatment, targeted not just to a particular disease but a particular person.
