Vaccine Manufacturing and Production will serve as a reference on all aspects of vaccine production by providing an in-depth description of the available technologies for making different types of vaccines and the current thinking in facility designs and supply issues. This book will provide insight to the issues scientists face when producing a vaccine, the steps that are involved, and will serve as a reference tool regarding state-of-the-art vaccine manufacturing technologies and facility set-up.
Validation by Design. Lynn Thorbeck. This title demonstrates how designed experiments are the most scientific, efficient, and cost effective method of data collection for validation in a laboratory setting. Intended as a learn-by-example guide, Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Validation by Experimental Design demonstrates why designed experiments are the most logical and rational approach to use, using realistic case studies, illustrations, and where appropriate, step-by-step protocols and procedures.

Process Architecture in Biomanufacturing Facility Design is an ideal text for professionals involved in the design of facilities for manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals and vaccines, biotechnology, and life-science industry, including architects and designers of industrial facilities, construction, equipment vendors, and mechanical engineers. It is also recommended for university instructors, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students in architecture, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial design, and industrial interior design.
Biological safety: Principles and Practices remains the most comprehensive biosafety reference. This book presents the guiding principles of laboratory safety, including: the identification, assessment, and control of the broad variety of risks encountered in the lab; the production facility; and, the classroom.
The two authors have thoroughly revised this established text, to include the recent developments in infections and agents, and current European regulations and recommendations. Laboratories are increasingly under pressure to keep up to date with these changes. They will benefit from the practical advice in this new edition, and the experience of Chris Collins who has an international reputation in laboratory safety and laboratory-acquired infections, and of David Kennedy’s expertise in the assessments of risk and the safety of equipment.
Ken Alibek. Anthrax. Smallpox. Incurable and horrifying Ebola-related fevers. For two decades, while a fearful world prepared for nuclear winter, an elite team of Russian bioweaponeers began to till a new killing field: a bleak tract sown with powerful seeds of mass destruction—by doctors who had committed themselves to creating a biological Armageddon. Biohazard is the never-before-told story of Russia’s darkest, deadliest, and most closely guarded Cold War secret.
This is a valuable resource for those seeking to embrace and implement biorisk management systems in their facilities and operations, including the biological research, clinical diagnostic, and production/manufacturing communities. Setting the stage for a substantively different approach for managing the risks of working with biological agents in laboratories, Laboratory Biorisk Management: Biosafety and Biosecurity introduces the concept of biorisk management―a new paradigm that encompasses both laboratory biosafety and biosecurity.
The book discusses biosecurity risk assessment-a practical methodology that allows laboratory management and biosafety/biosecurity officers to analyze and determine the level of risk, and serves as a basis for managing those risks. The book includes questionnaires that can assist the process of collecting data for a biosecurity vulnerability assessment, example standard operating procedures and memoranda of understanding, and other useful reference material.
