Parvovirus Retentive Filter Spiking Study Best Practices Parvovirus Retentive Filter Spiking Study Best Practices

Parvovirus retentive filters are a commonly implemented and validated viral clearance technology within bioprocesses (mAb/recombinant and plasma fractionation). Regulatory guidance stresses that viral clearance filter validations be as representative of full scale manufacturing as possible to ensure the validity of the study results. There are a number of critical factors to consider during validation which can present challenges in maintaining this representativeness. If these factors are not properly addressed in the study design, retention and/or capacity could be negatively impacted.
