“A Robot Be Doing Your Job In 5 Years”
We have all read this click bait title many times over.
Yes, we are at the dawn of the autonomous revolution and ultimately, some jobs will be replaced by robots. The good news is that this revolution is going to accelerate science and technology at a rapid pace. The companies and individuals who invest and embrace automation will have a large competitive advantage over those who stick to traditional techniques.

One of the challenges of creating monoclonal antibody (mAb) injectable drugs is optimizing formulation. A good formulation has to have a high concentration of stable mAb’s for high efficacy. There are a variety of factors that can affect stability of these mAb’s, temperature, shear forces, pH, and even concentration. When proteins become, unstable and denature they can increase the viscosity of your formulation. Using a simple modified parallel plate demonstration, we can visualize why denatured proteins increase viscosity.
