  • Root Cause Analysis and Tools Used for RCA- Pharmaceuticals

    September 29, 2020 by

    Root cause analysis is a methodology to find the primary cause of problem, by tracking back the actions which lead to the nonconformance(problem) and helps to solve the problem. Root cause analysis is used to identify the problem. What happened? why it happened? and then to determine, what improvements or changes are required to overcome… Read more

  • IGIB uses mass spectrometer for coronavirus detection — Science Chronicle

    September 4, 2020 by

    IGIB researchers have been able to detect novel coronavirus using mass spectrometer. The detection is based on the presence of two unique peptides of the virus. Sensitivity is 95% and specificity is 100% and takes less than 30 minutes from sample preparation to testing. Using mass spectrometer, researchers at the Delhi-based Institute of Genomics and […]… Read more

  • Friability Testing

    August 31, 2020 by

    Friability (the condition of being Friable) testing is a methodology, that is used to see the physical strength of compressed and uncoated tablets upon exposure to mechanical shock and attrition. In simple words, what quantity of mechanical stress tablets will stand up to throughout their production, distribution, and handling process. Friability testing has become an accepted technology.

  • A case of coronavirus reinfection in Hong Kong confirmed by genome sequencing

    August 25, 2020 by

    Using genome sequencing, researchers at the University of Hong Kong have found a rare instance of reinfection with novel coronavirus for the second time, four-and-a-half months after the first infection. The first viral genome belongs to GISAID clade V, while the second genome belongs to GISAID clade G. Using genome sequencing, researchers at the University… Read more

  • Children have more coronavirus during early infection phase than hospitalised adults

    August 22, 2020 by

    Researchers found that children infected with novel coronavirus have viral load comparable with adults admitted to ICUs. But during the early infection phase, children can have significantly higher viral load than COVID-19 adults in ICUs. Viral load decreases over time in children. Age of children did not have any impact on viral load. Researchers Massachusetts… Read more
