Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

Project Description: The scope of this internship is to perform qualifications for the following assays. Container closure integrity assay by mass extraction and osmolality using freezing point osmometry.

Container closure integrity assay ensures container closure systems are adequately sealed in order to maintain sterility and product quality. The current method, dye ingress has been challenging. Mass extraction is nondestructive, quantitative measurement approach for detecting leakage in nonporous, rigid or flexible packages. It is very efficient compared to the dye ingress method.

Osmolality is a valuable test since it provides a reliable and repeatable value that reflects overall solute content of a formulation. Currently, vapor pressure osmometer is being used to measure osmolality. Only one sample can be analyzed at a given time. However, with the freezing point osmometer up to 20 samples can be loaded to the auto sampler. Also, freezing point osmometry is the industry preferred standard.

Objectives:

• New qualified method for Osmolality measurement.

• New qualified method for Container closure integrity testing.

• Qualification reports for the above-mentioned assays.

• New CTP SOP.
Desired Majors and/or Skills:
