The US pet food market is booming. In 2018, Americans spent more than $30 billion on food of a total $72 billion spent on pets, according to the American Pet Products Association. Pets are becoming full-fledged members of more and more households.
Aseptic food processing can produce high-quality packaged goods that are shelf-stable for long periods. However, if not properly produced and packaged, aseptic foods can be dangerous to the consumer. Consider these six steps to ensure product safety.
Cell therapies are emerging as an important class of next-generation medicines. As many novel treatments move through development to commercialization, manufacturers are challenged to construct optimal facilities for the production of cell therapies. Modeling and simulation at the earliest design stages have many benefits.
Not all labs are created equal. Why do some research facilities produce more patents? Others have greater throughput given the same space and time. Using evidence-based research, designers and lab owners/operators alike can enjoy the benefits of laboratories built to champion productivity. Here’s a list of the 10 design strategies on how to improve laboratory productivity:
Shorter project timelines, increased demand for sustainability, and the availability of big data are driving forces in facility design. BIM pushes the envelope of design, resulting in better processes, optimized workflow, reduced cost, and ultimately, the next generation of biotech facilities.
